      If his Aussie car is "Euro-spec," and the tail lights he's looking at are too (both of which I'd bet yes), then there shouldn't be any re-wiring or re-coding required -- except just re-coding for the...

      Yeah... And if the sellers are in the U.S., it's reasonable to assume the don't even much idea what a rear fog light is, much less which side it's supposed to go on.

      And when you tell them you're...

      Hey... I'm looking at that Ebay listing again in detail. And I'm still confused as far as what specifications these tail lights are.

      They're obviously being mailed from the U.S. -- West Coast. ...

      OK... The next question is, are those European-spec tail lights? that is, do they have amber turn signals inside the small circles at the centers of the parking light/brake light rings?

      Because...

      What kind of Mk5 do you have? And what kind of tail lights are standard on Mk5's in Australia? LEDs on Jettas and incandescent on Golfs, with rear fog light (on the right/driver's side)?

      But you wrote in post #2 that you thought the (rear) turn signal bulb is an H6W. Typo? And the OP has never confirmed that he's got the stock Euro incandescent tail lights, though I agree that's...

      But the OP wrote that the problem was with his "rear amber turn signal." the 194/W5W/2825 (and your LED bay9s) wedge-type bulbs are for Mk5 front turn signals.

      So I'm still curious to know what...

      Well, ever changed your spark plugs? VW recommends every 60,000 miles, I believe -- so you're past that in km.

      But I'd suspect ignition coils. I had a very similar problem with my GLI (TSI...

      Answer is, it depends. Again, what kind of harness are you going to have? That is, what kind of connectors?

      Yeah, that's my cynical thinking too.

      Those red circles don't look like reflectors. They definitely look PhotoShopped, which is also how the dark red surrounds look.
