    Knocked out a pair of these at lunch today. Hopefully they get installed very soon. My plan is to mount them to the front side of the radiator core support along each side of the radiator / a/c condenser. This should eliminate any heat problems with the ballasts. Those are 10mm high fins on the...

    I have an 04 Passat wagon 4-motion. The headlights are clear, but the low beam is brightness is not very good. I'm looking at upgrading to LED bulbs or 35 watt HID. Not sure how the upgrade will work with daylight lights, since my guess its 1/2 the power. Any info will help to figure what...

    Might be a silly question, but what's the best way to seal the headlight after putting in bulbs? I have the DDM kit and cut a hole that fits the black seal pretty well, but when I put the cap back on it's pretty hard to get the cap all the way on and have the black seal stay in place. I can take...

    Hey everyone, I have a 2003 Passat Wagon. I thought that my passenger fog light had been burnt out since I bought the car. I ordered the Kensun 55w HID fog light kit and got it today. After installing them and swapping them to make sure both bulbs and ballasts worked, I am still having...

    Twice this week the HIDs did not turn on. First day I thought I would have to drive home with just parking lights and fogs. 100 ft down the road they fired up. Second time I turn on the lights , HIDs did not turn on and proceeded to brush snow off the car. They turned on while I was cleaning the...

    I've had my Passat for a little over a year and have always wanted HID lights. I had them installed last weekend and they are awesome.

    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...

    Hey fellas, I successfully swapped in EvoX-r projectors to my stock headlight housings on my 2002 B5.5 wagon. I really love the high beams at night but there's just one little issue.. There's a little bit of light that shines over the cutoff towards the center of each beam. Definitely not...
