      wut I am going to try this right now.


      I just learned my car had tis a few months ago because you cant see it from the inside.. but only on 06's if you have your headlights on and you pull the stalk back to spray the windows little headlight washers will pop out of your bumper and spray the headlights, (and the holy hood and leave watermarks everywhere so dont bother. its cool to watch though.)

      Not on either of our 2009's. Had to enable auto emergency flashers on both with VAG-COM.

      I've had it actually activate once on my GLI during an emergency braking. Wish I knew what actualy causes the flashers to activate... ABS activation? Doesn't seem to be the case. A certain G-force level?

      Be nice to able to adjust things so the flashers activated during real hard but non-ABS braking, like if you suddenly come over the crest of a hill and run into a traffic jam (a la Autobahn). Good to have the flashers on to warn traffic behind you, but that's not the time when you want to be fumbling with one hand for the 4-way flasher switch...

      True that! 2005.5 got the puddle lighted mirrors, deleted for 2006, 2006 just got the puddle lights under the doors... I agree 2005.5 is probably the best year but I had to have a GLI....

      Only the GLI and GTI had the headlight washers -- Jetta 2.5, Wolfsburg, and 2.0T (non-GLI model) were not equipped with head light washers...

      Not sure if anyone has mentioned this already, but its something I have noticed. During the day the gauges are actually lit which is great for when you go through an overpass on the highway. I still can't figure out how it works. I want to say they are solar powered or have a sensor that turns them on when the sun hits it because they obviously don't turn on at night, unless you hit the city lights.

      The needles are lit constantly... When you turn on the car they turn on. Nothing about being solar powered or anything....

      mostly true, 05.5 and IIRC 06 jetta's you could option HID's, if you got HID's you got headlight washers.

      Yeah I know the needles, but i'm talking about the actual dial numbers (what normally is lit up in white) that is what i mean is lit up during the day but then fades out when either the sun goes down (if your driving into the night) or if you stay under an over pass for too long.
