      That s correct and is very hard to match 100% perfect unless i have the vehicle in the shop but again i m doing this on the side so i m use the standard color formula. And depend on the angle like the owner mention but overall they r alot better than those rattle can spray or OEM amber color.

      You are right, at the angle the picture is you can tell they are off a bit, but from far away and other angles they look colormatched

      The variation is very minor and i alway choose standard or 1 shade darker if neccessary. That s why on those pic doesnt do justice.

      No worries, I hope you don't think I was bashing.

      A lot of people purchase your side markers and are very happy. Shadow Blue is very tricky from the recent painting that was required for my MKVI. I just wanted to let the OP know about the color variation.

      i knew there was no bashing involved, john does do good work. shadow blue is tricky to match and i was aware of the color variation

      I know this is a stupid question but where did you find the led license plate bulbs and who do you get to do the vag com tweaks ? I assume the dealer is not the place to go for this.

      I got the led plate bulbs from parts4euro.com, and I got the vagcom tweaks done by a guy in a near by town by me

      Thanks, I guess I have to find someone who has a vag-com or just spend the $250 and buy my own.

      Looks good man. Did you have the keys or you just cut a credit card to remove the MDI ? Also, are you ordering the bottle opener?
