Others might not feel the same way! Just offering up something for people who aren't as savvy with a soldering iron and electronics.
The write up is great, and I'm not trying to take away from that. Excellent work with the detail. So many people don't take the time to dig into the details.

ordered ZIZA lights from ECS tuning for my 2012 GTI and they throw a bulb out code when applied to the city lights. I know the bulbs are good because they didnt do so on my 2009 Tiguan. Called ECS and they said I could run a 10 ohm resistor in series with the bulb and it should work. First, does that sound legit? and second, how do I do that? He also mentioned Radio Shack. Would they have it??? The resistor? I see what you guys did with the license plate bulbs, but I am not prepared to spend that kind of money on all those parts, or time, for now. I am almost willing to just deal with the bulb out light and warnings
does anyone make a an LED bulb that goes around all of this nonsense? I see a bunch of links, but I have used ECS, I have used ledwholesale, I have used DEautokey, and every bulb is throwing a code. I just want plug and play because I dont have vagcom and I am not as technical as most of you guys...
Okay. What the issue with "bulb is out" ever resolved via the VCDS way?
Is it worth to spend the money (43 GBP per EACH LED at local stealership!) in order to try this mod?

The module I have:

No fault code found.
Also, the car build date seems to be around 25th week of 2010.
In case anyone else is interested in upgrading their car's license plate lights to the OEM units, I have a pair of OEM 1K8943021C license plate lights, just listed them on ebay.co.uk. Although it says shipping to UK only, I'll ship worldwide, just ask me for the shipping costs. Might be cheaper than all you think. Happy bidding!
Oh, and these OEM LEDs seem not to give the 'bulb is out' message on MkV's once the cold diagnosis is turned off.
