I would love to add vent lights to my 2004. Does anyone know if VW eliminated the wiring altogether when they removed that feature from the GLS line?

There is NO wiring for these lights since about Jan. 2003 in GLS and below trim levels, if you really want them I believe it would be easier and probably more cost efficient to get a GLX or W8 or a Jetta or Golf :poke: , I have an '03, build date of Mar. 03, and no vent lights, but I'm not bitter, :roll: til I see another '03 B5 with them :mad:

i have an '02 w8 and if i know what your talking about, which i think i do, my car does not have vent lights.

i dont know the build date of my car, but it was one of the first '02 to ship, literally the first batch of w8's to hit the dealerships

It is a nice feature and I get comments everytime someone sits in my car at night. The Passat doesn't give away all its uniqueness at first glance and it surprises most people (chicks dig it :D )

BTW, I have a 98. All of my friends who have the .5 models don't have the dash vent lights.

Somehow, knowing the W8s don't have them makes me feel better. It's a shame, because despite how many people have to fix them, they are pretty cool.

the only problem i have seen with this is they like to call it purple. the backlighting is not purple, its BLUE.

but no matter what color they think they see, they like it :wink:
