    Hi Everyone, I recently bought the SE w/Lighting Package. It seemed like a reasonable price since for around $1,200 it included LED headlights, DRL, tail lights, and cornering fog lights. That being said, I've seen very little info about this option. I would love to see a side by side video...

    I'm looking at this as an option to the 2012 CC Sport, but I have some questions for those in the know. 1) What is the difference between the two? 2) Would this model follow the reliablity of the previous CC Sport's? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My 2005 Passat V6 4Motion wagon recently started running rough and throwing code P0303. The car has 92k miles.
