The new marker is way better. As far as the "slot"you speak of, are u talkin about the headlight washer that got deleted halfway through '07 production? Its the rectangular panel on the bumper cover if thats what ur talkin about.

Are those the smoked or color matched lenses? I'd like to get the color match for my CW and wondered how well the color matches up. I didn't know you needed a torx bit to install them; thought you just popped the old ones out and replaced with the new. Can you give details?

Well The Torx Bit Was To Remove The Inside Of The Wheel Well Its The Eziest Way I Found To Get To Them So U Could Pop Them Out . They just Pop In And Out Like You Said.... And As For Ur Question They Are Smoked Sidemarkers .

nicely done

hehe. yeah, there is no tools requered to get em out. just push on the left side, and it will go in, then just pull it out. i colore matched mine to my tr. had smoked on there before, and trust me, color match is the way to go. unless you got a bm, then smoked works just fine. put my old smoked ones on my mothers black rabbit. looks good. untill i paint her stock ones.

you can convert your fogs to HID, same as your headlights. i imagine that would be brighter. or you can get the vag-com and activate the flash to pass lights and run them with the drls.

that's actually the headlight washers. they only come out when the windshield wipers are on and you use the washers to clean your windshield.
Sorry but that's wrong. Well, at least in Teh Chris' case. He doesn't have the headlight washers. Only the 06 and early 07's have them.

You sure about that? I don't think so...
hahaha!!! i had a feeling you would say that. i just got my 08 MKV and they're on mine. the dealer showed me how to use them. during the demo he turned on the windshield wipers and then pulled back on the lever. and to my amazement, there they were. shooting out fluid onto the headlights. at the same time, he got sprayed from the windshield washers. i felt bad 'cause it got all over his coat. but they work.

however, they only spray out the fluid. there aren't any wipers for the headlights. just the washer fluid. but i'm sure you know that.

Hmmm... coulda sworn.

Just went to VW dealership. Thought they didn't... maybe I was looking at the late 07's...

Oh they had SIX.. yes, SIX R32's on the lot.. 3 UG's, 1 CW (beautiful IMO), 2 Blue.
