  12. Anybody have a 'good' drive lately?

    The Driver's Beat
    It's been awhile since I've had a decent drive. Too many non-drivers on the road doing just about everything BUT driving. Also where I live we have a huge A-hole factor, lot of bullies on the road with not much to do but cause havoc. Having a nice German sedan is not much fun when you cannot use...

  18. Has anybody utilized the two extra sockets in the rear tailights harness?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Pulled my tailight harness out on my wagon and discovered two empty sockets. Has anybody utilized these for rear fogs or auxiliary lights? I know drilling is necessary because there are no holes for the bulbs. Here's a pic of the bulb holder.
