      This reminds me of the Jetta vs Golf "backlit vent icon" mega-scandal of about 12 years ago. Seems that the Mk4 Jetta had backlighting behind the little icons that showed how to operate the vent...

      Done.

      And as Stern's diatribe shows, as long as you're replacing the optics when modifying, then my statement doesn't apply. I was referring to kits that convert halogen setups to HID without...

      Not the same horn. Alarm uses a separate piddly little thing.

      The main horn is probably made in a more modern rice factory in Shanghai and costs over $1. Fewer lemons.

      Those horns are notoriously flaky. VW probably paid some firecracker factory in Macau about $.39 apiece to crank out several million of them. Plenty of "duds" assured.

      $3 to $4k in suspension mods? Just throw a set of Bilstein Sports & H&R springs on it for < a grand and call it a day. Should corner like stink with that setup.

      Does. Not. Exist. "Reputable HID kit" is an oxymoron.

      You're forgetting the 17.5 days for the oafs at the VW Tech Line to sit around scratching their nads and trying to come up with another idea of what to try next. Hopefully they got it right this time.

      As a California native (displaced) and child of the '60's-'70's, I like them. But $50 up front then $50/year on top of already inflated licensing fees? What's Jerry Brown trying to do, fund his wacky...

      That "missing" coverage on the pax side is the fender bulge. The coverage is fine.
