Well, finally got them today, installing took me a little over an hour (unpacking, removing the carpet, uninstalling, installing).

So before I get to the pictures, I just wanted to say that these took quite a long time to get to me, at first, DHL gave me the estimated delivery date of June 12th - June 16th, but it turns out DHL is not DHL.de so yeah. I purchased them on June 5th, shipped on June 10th, arrived today, June 23rd.

Had some fitment issues, I think it's either due to the poor construction of the car's frame/body, or poor fitment from the tail lights, or maybe I just rushed to get these on before the sun went down. I may have another look at them in the future..
Here's the link to the imgur album: http://imgur.com/a/s4Jco

I guess the lesson to learn is take pics of your stockers before removing. Said issues may exist beforehand, and be seen in the LED light fitment
Don;t look terrible, but I'd mess with them more. See if you can use cardboard to shim them into place, then secure? From what I remember, the whole outer light assembly is held in by a single thumb screw. Even with guides, that's a lot of light to get just right without the ability to prop it.

Yeah the outer lights were the exact problem since it's held in by 1 thumb screw, another reason why I don't think the fit is right is because it could be the clip placement since there are two clips that hold the outer light as well.

I posted the album in the "what did you do to your mk6 today?" thread and some folks said it looked alright. So we'll see..
