    Apologize up front if this answer is somewhere - I searched and couldn't find anything. I'm pretty sure I have the optional HID bi-zenon headlights on my '07 3.64Matic Wagon. (is there a way to verify via VIN?) The car has the steering side lights at low speeds and are pretty bright. My issue...

    Does anyone know if there is a way to make my daytime running lights brighter using VAG-COM? I have a 2014 VW Passat TDI SEL Premium with after market HID chinese headlights. They look like the Audi A8 style which has a LED strip for the daytime running lights. They look great except for the LED...

    I have tried using the search function, but wasn't able to find this same problem- on my left tail light, when I put on the brakes, the brake light on top is much brighter than the one on the bottom, if the one on the bottom is lighting up at all. I replaced both bulbs, but this didn't do...

    So, this past weekend as you know was Southern Worthersee 2013 and while down there, the group I was with decided that we needed to plasti-dip my wheels. Luckily, there was a booth selling all sorts of bright colors so after a lot of peer pressure, I said "Go for it." The result was a bright...

    Hi all, regarding the HVAC panel bulb... replaced it with the factory N0177512 from the dealership, but it isn't as bright as the original bulb I had, tried twice with two N0177512's, are they making them a lower wattage now? Is there a another bulb available that will be brighter?, LED? Any...

    I do have 06 Passat and just bought from dealers with 2 year extended warranty(certificate). I"m enjoying the ride, but I want brighter headlights. To be honest, I want a HID headlight, however, I"m worrying about replacing and installing outside market headlight bulbs and balast will cause...

    Okay, so I have a B5.5 with window tint, and I'm wanting to get tinted tails, but as of right now with just tinted windows I can barely see anything when I'm backing up at night, and I purchased some of those tail light cover (static cling type) off of ebay, and I really liked the look of them...

    Like the title says folks, I bought a pair of FK headlights with an HID kit from another member here, and one of the bulbs is significantly brighter than the other. The previous owner says he never had this problem, and he never switched out the bulbs (I thought they might have been a different...

    Hello guys and gals I'm currently running FK Headlights with just regular blue bulbs in them. At night when I turn them on it's barely visible especially coming from PA. Besides converting to an HID setup is there any other bulb out there that would give me a brighter output?? Thanks for...

    My driver side low beam went out a few days ago so I replaced it and the passenger side with Sylvania Silverstars. I also replaced the city lights with PIAA white LEDs. After putting everything in and taking a step back to admire my latest upgrade to my ride I was let down to see that all the...

    I just installed my McCulloch HID 5000 kit and took the car for a spin to see how they looked. I noticed only a slight difference in brightness over my Halogen silverstars. I did see white light but not to the the extent I was expecting. Is this due to using stock projectors? aiming of my...

    I've noticed that my OEM Hella B5 HID's just aren't as bright anymore, or more importantly, aren't as bright as the newer cars that are out there. These have been aimed perfectly, and still cast a nice amount of light. However, the bimmers and volvos etc seem to put out an even WHITER light than...

    ... any aftermarket bulbs or additional light solutions for making my reverse lights brighter, please? With the limo tint, sometimes reversing in tough when I'm out camping, etc. cheers! :beer:

    Anyone know where to get brighter tail light bulbs? Maybe LED"s? Need something brighter then the stock bulbs. Bulbs for the reverse lights too.
  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Guys, I'm really loving my new ride and the HID's are the brightest I've ever seen. (Even brighter than the Lexus SC-430's) I would love to change my W8's bulbs to something that would give a little more light, and there's where I need some help. Should I replace the low beam or DRL bulbs...

    Does anyone have a recommendation for brighter foglights on our B5.5's.. I like my W8's HIDs but I wish the foglights were a little bit brighter. Yeah, I'm a little jealous that my neighbor's 2003 E500 Sport has the brightest HIDs and fogs I've ever seen..
