No, but I do know they are VW Golf units if you need replacements at a fraction of the Techart price!

I hope it's easier than that. Checking with the seller's agent as this area was repainted so they should know how to get it out. All I want to do is adjust the beam downwards. I think the painter played with the adjusting screw while he was in there.

Chris, you were correct. Bumper removal is required as they are held in by a bolt.

I'm not sure as I didn't fit them. Here's a picture of the front side.

A section of the plastic behind the fog light has been cut out to fit by the looks of it. Pretty simple job tho.

Frank (Black Betty) may know the answer to this as he fitted a set last year.

yes you have to cut the bumper to fit the tech art fogs. Crazy expensive to buy though. There is an adjustment screw to the left of the tech art lettering which allows you to aim the fogs. I did not need to remove my bumper to install or adjust mine.

Any tips on how you managed this as I have a set to install?

It has been a number of years but what info do you need?

You will at a minimum need to remove the two trays under the bumper to reach around to fit and adjust.

I am assuming you have the instructions and templates?

Although they recommend cutting the entire back behind the fog light away you can cut far less and I recommend not cutting the areas that have the screws for the fog lights it makes sense to just remove the screws in case you change your mind and want to return it to the stock look. The bumper cuts very easily with a dremel tool, or even a dry wall saw or sharp razor knife just take your time. Once you have the bumper cut installation is pretty straight forward IIRC.

You can see the single adjustment screw in the picture John posted. It is a simple up or down adjustment.

Any chance anyone might have the original instructions and templates? I picked up a used set that didn't include either.

You need to buy the tech art kit it is pricey and requires painting. http://www.fvd.de/us/en/Porsche-0/-/...s_964_965.html
