I think on a US car they won't work without recoding. You'll need to adapt for amber indicators (so not brake light function), and fog/reverse lights.

I don't think they'll break if you just plug...

Eeh, I wouldn't leave it so long. VW recommend 40k for a reason, if you don't get it done your mechatronics unit won't like it.

I don't think the DEFI fuel pressure sensors are capable of reading the very high pressures required by the FSI (in excess of 110-130bar).

I think the best mix would be boost, oil pressure, and...

DEFI gauges compatible with the Control Unit II have a digital controller mounted in the engine bay. All that goes through the firewall is an electronic signal wire.

I believe some of the US forum members figured out exactly what to do. Try searching for a howto on the "Euroswitch", I think that's what it was called.

The Passat lightswitch has an Auto setting, sidelight select (I think they're the US DRLs), main beam, and pullouts for both front and rear fogs. Should be everything you need.

What you're hearing is the injectors; remember it's not a "conventional" injected engine, it employs FSI with a very high pressure (hence the distinctive ticking).

I had this exact problem a few weeks ago, gear level position sensor (tiptronic sensor). Replaced and no problems since then. Was worried it was a mechatronic issue.
