    I got rear-ended last month on my way home from work. No injuries, except for the car. The bodywork was done by Eason's Auto Body in Middletown, NY (Shameless Plug).

    I recently installed new headlights with fogs, and a Euroswitch. How do I enable the foglight 'icon' on the dash when the foglights are on?

    Seatcovers for 2003 Jetta

    I have a 2003 Jetta TDI wagon, with black cloth interior, and I would like to put seat covers on the front seats. The owner's manual, however, says not to because of the side air bags.
