      Welcome to VWVortex!

      But you need to read the entire thread before responding. The question was answered way back in 2006, on the first page of the thread. :)

      I can't guarantee anything. I'm just saying that your headlights weren't designed for HIDs, and and installing HID bulbs in headlights that weren't designed for them causes problems with the beam...

      Do you mean the amber light in the center of the dashboard near your four-way flasher switch, telling you that the passenger-side air bag is off when there's no one in that seat?

      I don't believe...

      Your main problem isn't and wasn't the adjustment (though the height adjustment was off) -- and we can't tell whether the brightness is wrong. The problem is the quality of the beam patterns from...

      Looking at your images in your Post #8 above, it doesn't look like the right-side beam is that great, either. Hard to tell whether it's brighter than the other one or not, but the light is also...

      No. We've seen the same problem when people have installed HID bulbs in Hella halogen projector headlights. Even though they're projector lights, they're designed for halogen bulbs, not HIDs. The...

      Nope. In that post, dr. sandwiches (I can't believe I just typed that :) ) was just saying that all the bulbs in the segments do light up at both intensity levels -- just not when they're supposed...

      The OP had written way above that when he presses the brake, only the inner circle illuminates bright on each side (see "Problem 1" in his Post #1). Per stock, the entire circles on both sides are...

      The problem wouldn't be with how much current they draw (same as 55w halogen bulbs), or with heat. The problem would be how horribly bright they are.

      Normal 35w HIDs are already more than twice...

      Yeah, that would be something that's cheap and easy to check.

      The bulbs are 7506 single-filament bulbs (1156 will also work), available from any auto parts store for a couple bucks.

      Since I...

      Yeah. Looks like everything's OK with the OP's re-wiring and re-coding.

      I suspect something wrong with both tail lights internally. Only thing I can think of for a diagnosis would be for him to...

      That's what I was saying. The diagram in the DIY (orange, gray/red, black/green, black/violet) is how it should be for LED tail lights, which you don't have.

      Tim, remember that the OP needed to change his wiring back to how it was stock, for his new incandescent headlights.
