May be moving to Europe, need help prepping my car

Hey everyone. I may be moving to Europe at some point soon and I want to take my GTI with me. I am just wondering what all I would need to modify to make my car legal there. So far I have already installed LED taillights, wired up the rear fog lamp and activated the ROW lighting mode along with the emergency brake light flashers and selective parking lamps in VCDS. I know headlight washers are also required there and my local VW dealer said they would install them for me. Also, My RNS-315 radio only receives odd frequencies, is there some coding in Vag-Com I can tweak to make it receive even ones too? Besides all that, is there anything else I would need to change?
Thanks for the help,
Zach

Where in Europe are you moving to?? Laws will differ depending on country.

In the UK headlight washers are only required to be in working order if fitted, if not fitted the car will pass that part of the test,

This link may be of interest, Iíve used this site as a reference when driving in other EU countries, Iíve not driven in Germany though!
Some parts will not apply to your car though as you are also left hand drive and wonít need some things mentioned, such as headlight beam deflectors (applies to RHD cars only)

I do know you need a warning triangle and high viz jacket/bib in the car throughout central Europe,
