After looking through this thread here I realized that while there is a lot of great information in that thread, unless you are handy with VCDS, or know how it works, most of that will fly right over people's heads. For those of you that don't own VCDS, you will rely on a local person or shop to take care of the coding for you, and it is likely that they won't know how to do this stuff without looking it up.
So...I tried to make it a little bit easier for people to get their desired results. The codings that I used applies to my JSW (no fogs, no xenons) so those that are similarly equipped, these will work for you as well. For those with GTIs/Golfs with fogs and/or xenons, things will be somewhat different and the original thread can be resourced for the differences...
