      You really need to be specific about what you're asking.

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

      And what kind of fog...

      Yup, like 1wheelonly shows, all Mk5 bumper skins -- Jetta/GLI and Rabbit/GTI, whether they were equipped with fog lights or not -- will have those same fog light mounting points. If you take off the...

      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.

      Ah, you're saying that because of the bottom of the series of images on the eBay site, showing "PARK, BRAKE, & TURN SIGNAL LEDS"?

      If that's the case (and I'm not convinced it is), then the red...

      You could be right. Though the web site doesn't say what color the turn signals are, that I can see.

      But wasn't re-wiring still necessary for LED tail lights in "Passat mode" (red turn...

      I'm not specifically familiar with the Depo LED tail lights.

      But if they're E-Code -- that is, designed and intended for the European market as aftermarket lights -- which I'm pretty sure they are...

      I don't have any direct experience with these. The Ziza brand isn't known for having particularly great optics.

      On the other hand, assuming these meet European EC regulations (which I'd bet they...

      You don't need a highline CECM to set the "Coming Home" function. It can be set even with a midline CECM using VAG-COM/VCDS. I've got it set on my wife's 2.5 Jetta. (For reference, that's where...

      No, I really don't think that's it. In the parking light position, the first pull-stop on the switch turns on the front fog lights like it should on my wife's retrofitted 2.5 Jetta (or, in OP's...

      No real reason to get the highline CECM for your front fog lights. There's a harness from ECS Tuning that allows you to install the fog lights without going through the CECM. Kind of the...

      It's working fine.

      There are two combined reasons why your car is doing what it's doing when the switch is in the parking light position: 1) you've don't (and won't) have front fog lights hooked...

      What procedure -- exactly -- did you follow to install the LED tail lights?

      I may be mistaken, but you'd need a VAG-COM in any case to re-code your computer so that it "knows" you have LED tail...

      Nope. If you have a GLI or GTI, then your bi-xenon bulbs (the ones with the round lenses, that act as both high beams and low beams) are D2S high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs.

      The bulbs aren't "DRLs." They're low-beam bulbs. They just happen to also be used as DRLs (daytime running lights) on these cars.
