      Yes, exact fit, only thing is you'll have to wire the inners for turn signals or figure something else out since the euro had turns in the bumpers. And no worries buying from him, he is absolutely the best source for euro parts.

      Again, just to let anyone who's interested know, I just received my latest shipment from this wonderful seller and everything was incredibly well-packed and in great shape. If you want any of these parts from Germany, you will not find a better seller.

      you may need to move your bumper, but there are two pairs of bumper mount holes in your frame rails, apart from that, yes it will fit no drilling needed.may need to adapt the wiring.

      If you go for the Santana lights, you won't need to figure out how to run turn signals as they are already in the same place as yours currently. If you get the Passat ones, you'll need to wire the inners for turns or figure out a different location as the Passat had the turns in the bumper. Either way, you can't go wrong with his parts. You will definitely be happy.

      the inner passat fog-dummys can easily be modified to work as markers.
      i could hack some sort of bracket in them to accept the standard dual filiament bulb , you would just need a plug from a mk2 rocco to make it oem+
      and with the yellow bulb it would even look like a yellow fog light when off

      Yes, as he said it's an easy modification to use the inners as turn signals. That's what I did with my old set and I passed the strict MA inspection with no problem. Next time I'm also going to install some fender mounted LED turn signals in addition to the others. I gotta get on my project or you guys are going to beat me to all the cool firsts.
