    Xenon problem?

    A friend has the new model Jetta (2006) and when he turns on his OEM xenons they don't do the up and down thing. Are they supposed to do this? Or maybe the Jetta isn't supposed to do it? I thought all cars with xenons do a calibration thing when first switched on? I hooked up vagcom and no...

    OEM xenon probs

    I have these fitted approx 4 years now but if you switch them on without the engine running i might be lucky for them to light.
