      Just for comparison, Mein Auto was manufactured in Emden on 2/4/08 (a Monday :eek:). I swapped the taillights out for the Euro tails a couple years ago and everything looked fine, and I see no...

      It goes off if 25% under set pressure. The TPMS module is more accurate than the ABS system, but it I agree it should've been part of the law to require indication of which tire is low.

      I have AFS on my Passat and although my lights do the dance at start up, I don't notice them raising or lowering either on hills or speed bumps (I don't get flashed, but I put that down to living in...

      Could be the difference, yes. But with Scan DRL I'd be running the tails too, and am not sure I could lower the tail light output in any case. I set my DRL to run through the fogs to save the...

      I have the Euro switch and my parking light will not run alone unless I set Scandinavian DRL in VCDS. I use Auto anyway but I couldn't get it to work otherwise. Now if only we could run parking...

      I believe in order to run parking lights only you have to enable Scandinavian DRLs via VCDS with the new switch, which keeps head and tail lights on as DRLs.

      My OEM lasted at least 6 years -- and I didn't find out how long it would last because I replaced it before I had any symptoms with another OEM from the dealer last April.

      ^^^The "lesson" from your B6 Passat should have been to never buy a first year vehicle.

      As wpzr wrote, look for 2008 only. No VR6 / 4Motion in 2009 or 2010 in the US, and 2006 / early-mid 2007 models have a potential bolt issue that could trash the engine. (Also, in order to handle...

      Why not just get a new GPS antenna?

      You don't necessarily have to disconnect the car's compass, nor do you have to code using VCDS to disable in the car's computer -- I ran my 510 for a couple...

      It's considered wear and tear and covered for 12 months or 12k miles. VW has been doing this for years (actually better than some other brands IMO).

      Have you tried a reboot?

      Press and hold for a few seconds and then release these three buttons at the same time: “Night" + “<” + “>” to reboot.

      10k more miles with, what, water in the lines? I don't know exactly, just the recommendation I've see for the 3 VWs I've owned.
