Not surprising. I've seen one Mk. I GTI, and a few other cars, mostly
recent VWs, with factory blacked-out taillights, that obviously had stronger
bulbs (or other tricks such as thin alternating black/clear stripes) 
resulting in normal lights, but between all the many cars with owner-blacked-out
lights that I've seen in the South and the few blacked-out and now
also clear lights up here in NE, none had anywhere close to adequate lights.
