      H7 is the cornering light...it's a 55 watt bulb that shines light to the left or right when you're moving something like over 5 miles per hour and when you turn the wheel...or are stationary and flip...

      Can see that of course. No trustee the blue aftermarket anyway (I hear they can have fitment problems as well), but clear ones discoloring would be disconcerting. My OEM Euro ECS Tuning, or maybe...

      You mean the regular clear ones? Asphericals and US? Never really seen that or heard of it before -- interesting.

      VW makes tinted OEM mirrors? I thought they didn't and these were all aftermarket.

      It's EU law that the speedo must read higher, by no more than 10% of the actual speed, but never lower. ODO is unaffected and correct.

      Have we got a pump? If so, the 2008 Haldex Annual Report shows that generation 3 has one but the Passat isn't listed as using Gen 3 -- but it is listed for Gen 2, which I thought we used, with no...

      Not so sure about actually removing the headliner, just dropping it. I investigated having my roof repainted and they only mentioned dropping it so they could disconnect the fin, nothing about...

      The dealer's job and mandate is to bring the car back to design spec, thus the rewire. Maybe try to find an independent shop to do the work, although I would buy a new fin, since pulling it out may...

      I think there was a recall of the battery cable on earlier (2006/07) VR6 Passats -- for those with the battery in the trunk. Might want to check to see if that was completed.

      That's good news. From all I've read this car and other VW/Audis can go batsheet crazy when battery power starts to fluctuate from the norm.

      Perhaps only the Germans know why. :cool:

      I have them too and from what I've read the '08s and later are wired to work correctly but not so much prior years.

      A battery that dies after 8 years -- in Florida no less -- is a "failure" worth noting only because how awesome that OEM battery was.

      The OEM for the 3.6 is an excellent battery. You got a lot of years out of your original. I replaced mine with another OEM after about 6 years, just as a precaution.

      I would also add try closing the rear vents and the glove box valve to up the air pressure.

      Turn off the beeps to make the system slightly more responsive. Also, unlock your car about 15-20 feet away to give the 510 more time to boot up.

      My Two Cents :P

      Don't think it's a risk. Drive the car a couple days and scan again. Some of those faults may have occurred if the battery was disconnected, for example.
