Just got mine but haven't opened them. Guess I'll be sending them back.
well I just installed mine and it's not 100%, maybe like 95-99% fit ...
I think for myself, they fit great ... it's not 100%, but it's good enough if you look at the close up video.
All of the side markers we have tested with no issues. This could be variations in bumpers.
Please anyone with issues please contact:

I ordered the ECS tuning lights and installed them this weekend. The bond between the reflector and the base is not perfectly uniform. This appears to be the primary cause of the uneven nature of the installs we have been seeing. Unfortunatley, I didn't take pictures before the install. The base however snaps in tight and is perfectly secure. My left is slightly more noticeable though both sides don't seat as flush as the stock reflector. With my CSG car, the smoked signals blend in very well though. On the magged picture, you can tell the lower edge has a little lip. Again the left side is a little more noticeable, but it's more of the same. Overall I don't think it is noticeable enough to worry about. If I had a different color combo though, I might not be satisfied.
similar part numbers but not the same ... I don't know why OEMplus sidemarkers fit better .. but I'd hit them up with info. I would have ordered another set from OEMplus, but their ridiculous shipping charge of $16 for a $45 item, makes it
$45 shipped from ECS and fit is 95% ... I'd say good enough ..
I put them on last night. The quality was fine (no scratches, no imperfections) but the fit is not great. The color is better than the straight yellow but if I had to do it over again I'd wait until someone offers a better fitting version, and I'd go clear or color-matched.
And yeah yeah I know, she needs a bath.
There is the slight ring of orange around the edge, but I am pretty sure I could prevent it next time by not being as aggressive with the razor-blade when trimming excess.
Why did VW even put these ugly markers on our cars? Ugh.
BTW, does anybody have a picture of the smoked sidemarkers with the lights on? Thanks.
