Blonde...in the US, if you turn your lights on and pull the switch out, the fogs will come on with the low beams. With the euro switch, this happens with the switch in either the parking lights on or headlights on. The fogs turn off when you switch to high beams.

Votex made lower fog lights for the B5 Passats but they are available no more. Occasionally they are listed in the classifieds. Better to just get the ones from pgperformance. Also buy yourself a Dremel. It makes the installation much easier. The lights themselves are plug'n'play but you have to modify the lower grills somewhat.

to be honest the grills were not the greatest, you need alot of massaging to make them look decent. But still not bad. The lights themselves worked very well.

What kind of "massaging" do the grilles need?

Also...DAMMIT! My euroswitch does NOT let me turn the fogs on when the lowbeams are off! WTF am I doing wrong?
