    I swapped my front ide markers form W3W to 194 today. Both were burned out and I couldn't find W3W in town. My concern is simply that the wattage is lightly higher on the 194 - 3 watts vs. 3.78 I believe but I am surely on the first B5.5 owner to do thi in the states! Any issues with the...

    Hey everyone. The sidemarkers I am referring to are the ones on the fenders, right before the doors. I was wondering if anybody figured out a way so that they stay on at all times. I just recently purchased a Euroswitch for my 98 1.8 and right now the sidemarkers only come on when the...

    Hey, I just added a Vdub to my garage of Nissans today... While I was at the dealership picking up my 2004 GLS 5spd I picked up one of the Driver Gear things... I was flipping through and saw the tinted side marker lenses and thought they would look sweet with the black exterior... --Anyone...

    Well, I followed all of your suggestions and still can't get the second sidemarker off the car. The drivers side was easy. The passenger side isn't. I've tried a credit card as well as the orange peeler, still no luck. Any hints? Can I get at it from the inside? Should I just drill through...
