:?: Seen loads of posts about modding B5 brake lights, I'm trying to change my B5.5 brake lights from the daft semi circular ones, to include the whole round tail light. Hope this makes sense !

Ah yes, I believe the semi circle brake lights are actually the euro spec tail light housings.  When the B5.5 was first  sold in the US in mid 2001 I recall a handful of people complaining about having the semi circle illumination of the tail lights.

I believe the easiest solution and the most costly is to replace with US Spec Tail lights.  If you have a rear fog you shoould be able to use whats there to keep that in place.

wierd, all four circles lights up entirely with the brakes and I have a 2001.5 model.
Then again there was so much work done to my car that it probably got replaced with a newer tail light spec.
