Hey all,

just came across this site while finding out information on replacing my fog light bulbs in my 2001.5 Passat. There is some useful info here and I will try out a few more of the posted suggestions. I am really interested in that tiptronic mod (sports mode etc.). Questions: If I don't have a VAG-COM, can I go to some auto dealer and have the tip mod done? Any suggested place around DC? I want to replace my fog bulbs with sylvania CB bulbs....is the part # for the replacement bulbs 9003CB? I went to an Auto store and picked up H7CB - which was suggested by the store's computers, but I think it is the low beam bulbs.

Thanks.

Hey Kareem,

The fogs you want should be H3, as long as it's H3 55W, you're good to go.

As for the vag-com, i'm not sure if a dealer will do it, but if you post in the general forum, a local member might be able to help you out.

Welcome to the club.

Thanx julianfang,

i bought 2 bulbs from Pep boys, A1C brand. Ever heard of them? They had the 'blue' bulbs I was looking for (even though they dont seem quite blue to me...maybe have to get a better look). They are 55w bulbs too. Sylvania does not appear to have those enhanced bulbs only the OEM replacements.

I would like to post pics within a forum. How do I do this without using an external link? Do they have to be on an external web server or can I just upload the graphic files to this server? Excuse my ignorance, just want to share pics of my passat :D
