      Brit driver's side (right), or Yank driver's side (left)? :)

      In either case, it would certainly work. I'm just saying that the existing North American convex right-side mirror also works fine to...

      Yeah, it's all your fault. :)

      I agree there are some advantages; I'm just saying the advantages are not overwhelming in mid- or low-latitude countries, or statistically huge.

      Remember that you guys in Canada have had DRLs mandatory now for, what, a couple decades now? So you kind of don't remember it any other way, up there in the Far Dark North. :) Just like the...

      Regarding the keys... Besides the two remote-control flip keys, these cars also all came with one-each valet key. Looks like a conventional non-flip key; and it has a transponder chip, so it will...

      We're digressing a bit, but I actually think that's potentially a real good solution if you want DRLs but don't want to run the bi-xenons as such. With LED bulbs, you wouldn't be burning up the...

      Ah, that makes sense. Do you have the fog lights coded with VAG-COM so they work as DRLs?

      LED bulbs won't work as fog lights, as far as any kind of beam pattern is concerned. Way wrong optics. Best you might get is a worthless glow. Stick with halogen H11 bulbs, and make sure your...

      The recall is in effect no matter what your warranty status. Both my 2009 GLI and my wife's 2009 2.5 Jetta were long out of warranty; but VW did the work connected with this recall for no charge. ...

      That's one way of looking at it. :)

      One big drawback to the 2010 is that I don't think anyone has been able to decypher how to code it to make the European-spec LED tail lights work. Those...

      I believe that only works for 2010 Mk5's, and only some of them. The 2010 models actually had the electronics of a Mk6, and were thus quite different thatn the "real" mk5's.

      How? I'm pretty sure you need VAG-COM to disable DRLs on 2005-2009 Mk5's (not 2010). You can't do it mechanically by disconnecting a wire, like you could on previous-generation VWs.

      You don't mean the front headlights go out... You mean the DRLs go out (which happen to be the same lights as the headlights, but at reduced power) -- right?
