      Welcome! What part of Europe (I assume) are you in?

      I assume you re-wired the tail light wiring harnesses at the tail lights.

      Did you also re-code the Central Electronics Control Module?

      Here's a DIY for Mk5 fog light installation with a highline CECM. It's a bit disorganized, and the information about the "coming home" feature is wrong -- but otherwise it seems to be pretty clear:...

      Yes, they break easily and no, the tabs aren't available separately.

      So you either have to replace the entire vent outlet (not horribly expensive in the front; much more so for the rear vents), or...

      Well, my compliments on your English. Not entirely surprising for Norway. :beer:

      Actually, we in North America never had any kind of 1.6L gasoline/petrol engine in the Mk5's. Besides the turbo...

      Welcome! You're a Brit?

      Just be aware that we never had the Mk5 Golf with the 1.6L BGU engine here in North America, so we're not familiar with the engine. So you may not get much specific...

      I'm confused what you mean by that. Do you mean that's when you "hot wire" directly from Pin 5 on the switch, to the (grounded) fog lights?

      On second thought, you're right; it really shouldn't...

      In a GLI or GTI with OEM fog lights, the trigger wire from Pin 5 (marked NL = Nebelleuchten = fog lights) does indeed control a "module" which in turn controls the fog lights -- that module is the...

      Unfortunately you're in the Mk5 forum -- all TPMS sensors.

      But as far as I know, Mk6 Golfs (our son has one) have the indirect system that senses unequal rotation of wheels -- no TPMS sensors.

      Fair enough.

      Keep in mind that looks are fine. But they're not the most-important thing, and definitely not worth having if you completely screw up performance.

      In this case, performance would...
