isn't that due to the mounting arms being a different orientation top to bottom (USA vs EU)?? the bumper i have is the EU one and that's the ones i thought the passat has, or whatever the opposite is from my mk3 mexican made A3. My mistake if they don't.

It's the shape of the lens and the construction of the assembly. Mk3 fogs will not work in a B4.

Actually the Mk3 fogs are closer to those used in the B3 cars with fogs.
