Much like Jim Lill:<p>- Raise the headlights (be careful not to blind in low beam)<br>- Install Silverstar fog bulbs<br>- Raise the fogs <br>- Enable fogs with high beams to fill in below the HID lower cut-off<p>The only difference is instead of rewiring the light circuitry with multiple relays, etc., just down load the "non-US fogs" configuration option.<p>Same result, simple and clean. Works great. You can safely drive unlit roads at night!<p>Just have to find a friend with access to VADIS. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><BR><BR>

Do you have the S/W download part number from a work order/invoice?

35% front doors<br>50% rear doors and rear side glass<br>35% back hatch glass, so no vision problems.<br>Heck, I can't see anyway, I hate to drive at night now

Maybe it's 20 on the sides, all I know is 35% on the front doors and the rears are the next step darker

Check the pics. in his sig. Obviously not.<p>Common confusion. Tint is rated in how much light it lets through not how much it reflects.<p>Here in WA passenger cars are allowed no more than 35% all the way around (no windshield obvously) and if the rear window is tinted, dual side rearview mirrors are required.<br><BR><BR>

I'm saying <B>if</B> I had a friend who did me a favor that others might not believe to be appropriate I would not reveal any information about my friend.

Re: The least expensive, least intrusive lighting solution I've found (I Roll)

yes, hypothetically it works very well, allowing independent switching of fogs and headlights in all permutations <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

The part number your friend gave you is for a V. Hypothetically, if you were to do this on an S the P/N is 8619398.<p><br>Thanks again. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>
