    Hey all, I've owned my '12 B7 3.6 SE for a couple years and have replaced almost every bulb with high quality replacements from deAutoKey. The conversion has been a long and quite expensive one, however the outcome is nothing short of head-turning. My very last struggle seems to be the most...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I cannot get my high beam lights to come on and stay on. It doesnt matter if I pull back on the switch and make the hi beams flash once (like if I'm letting someone know a speed trap is ahead) or if I flick the switch forward from the high beams to stay on they do the same thing everytime which...
