      Hey Ed,
      Who takes over shipping once the lights hit the US. Will tracking be sent by the new carrier?

      It gets delivered by USPS, you can still track, albeit slowly with the same tracking #.

      The rear fog option is availble all the time. They just ship direct from my supplier as the demand for them isnt that great.

      Can anybody respond with the quality of these? I'm always a little skeptical when it comes to headlight and taillight housings.

      quality seems to be pretty good so far. i got 3-4'' of rain in my area last week and no signs of leaks or condensation. fitment is 99%. you'd be pretty hard pressed to know the difference against oem.

      plenty of info on golfmk6 on these lights: http://golfmk6.com/forums/showthread...=35762&page=10

      any outer tail fitment issues you see/read can apparently be corrected with the adjustment screw on the tail light. My outers don't sit flush on the top so I need to pull them out and adjust them. Shouldn't take more than 5 minutes though.

      Bump, still have some lights for sale.

      There are adjustment screws on the back of the outer lights. They are the small round black knobs that turn. They can be sanded down alittle (around 1 mm or so) to get better fitment as well.

      I just installed my vacar reps, first off they are every bit as good as oem I don't care what anyone says, so save your time and don't try to convince me they aren't. They flash in a distinct pattern when I turn the key to the "ON" position, the pattern being 4 flashes on the outer drivers side light then all the others 4 or 5 times. I enabled the emergency brake light function with my MICRO-CAN, I thought it might be that or the voltage check. Is it one of those two or is there something else wrong, thanks?

      It is just doing a voltage check to ensure all the lights are working properly, its a normal thing.

      Bump - still have lights available.

      I purchased both the headlights and taillights from Ed in this last shipment and I am glad that I saved the cash and went with Ed's OEM Style lights.

      I did have to trim as others have mentioned, specifically the outer "spacer" tab on the tops of the inner lights and the two "backing" tabs on the inside of the outer lights. However, I must admit that the spacer tabs didn't have to be trimmed, but my OCD would not allow me not to. The 15 minutes of trim and fit "issues" is well worth the savings over the OEM parts.

      It should also be noted that a local with OEM Euro LED tails could not tell the difference between the two, of course I was already convinced they looked exactly the same.

      I coded my headlights and tails and have no errors. I have the LEDs in the headlights coded to act as DRLs in which they turn off once the headlights are turned on and I installed a Morimoto 4300K H7 HID kit. The light output is awesome! I don't usually have to drive at night, but I specifically went out for a cruise the night after install. The aiming adjustment is ridiculously easy.

      Thanks again Ed!

      Jason, what was the HID kit install like? How does that output compare to the fogs as far as energy/color? Can you post a pic to show them both on at night for comparision, if that's not too much trouble?

      thanks

      I never compared the HIDs with the factory fogs as I bought Hoen Xenon match H8s after checking out some of their reviews and pics. I was sadly disappointed in how blue they actually were, but I think it was in my own error as others were using 6000K HID kits which isn't my cup of tea. I am using a Morimoto 4300K H7 HID Kit.

      So to replace those, I bought Sylvania Silverstar Ultras, but in an H11 bulb as an H8 isn't/ wasn't available. The bulb harness is the same, however the mounting tabs are a little different and take some finessing to get them seated correctly. They are rated at 55W vs 35W so I'm taking a risk in excess heat being created by these bulbs in their housings, but they have a lumens output of 4100K which is about as close as I think I am going to get for a true match between the fog light and headlight.

      If you give me some time, I should be able to provide pics of each bulb I have for the fog lights for you before the end of the weekend. If I'm not happy with the Silverstar Ultras I will order some yellow fogs and try those out as well...and hopefully be able to pick one that I am happy with.

      Ooops...forgot that part.

      The installation of the HID kit is fairly simple.

      I ordered from The RetroFit Source who provided additional harnesses to work with CAN-BUS. There are a couple ways to use the harnesses and I chose to cut the wire grommet and replace the normal power harness with the CAN-BUS compatible harness. I then cut a circle out of the headlight rubber cap to allow the grommet to fit snugly in there. The "cancellers" are then 3M taped to the housing, and I 3M taped the ballasts inside the fender area against the frame. I wanted to keep as much of the HID kit hidden but still accessible of course. I didn't take pics of this, however I will and can post those as well. While I'm at it I will provide detail pics of the harness and grommet.

      Thanks! Helpful info. Trying to decide what direction to go with. Not experienced with this type of mod so want to have an idea of how involved before doing anything I regret.

      Would like to have the headlights and fogs match, but the yellow fogs are also a good solution.

      Trying to match a halogen bulb (fogs) to an HID bulb would require a higher Kelvin rating on the HID bulb, but then you are losing light output. You could just use halogen H7 bulbs for your headlights and have no issues with matching. The projectors will increase your visibility solely off of the design. I almost went this route.
