    Hi I have a 99 1.8T and I have been told to disable the daytime running lights so that they dont burn out the ballasts. How do I do that, and is it true? I dont want my HIDs on all the time either so a little help for an HID noob?:confused:

    Hey all, I tried removing my front bumper on my 2004 Passat to put in my HIDs and was basically there until I ran into problems with the screws that attach the grill to the bumper that are like between the grill and the headlight. These screws have a nut on them and I figured I could just keep...

    I'm thinking about upgrading the headlights in my 2001.5 Passat. My last 4 cars had factory HIDs, and I'm not that thrilled with the output of the standard lights that the Passat has. I don't have a problem with the lights being fogged up or anything--they just don't light up the road like I'm...

    I've heard having HIDs as DRLs as the passat is bad for the HID bulb because DRLs are low beams at 50%. Any truth in this? Cant be asked to take the relay out :salute:

    Im in need of 2 of the alternative wire relays from the HID kits at the groupbuy. If I can just cover shipping that would be great but if you want to sell them versus giving them away let me know.

    After driving with literally safety-hazard-headlights that were so clouded and yellowed I could barely tell if my headlights were on or not, even in the darkest, least lit areas of the city (even worse in the rain), I finally spent the money on some HIDs (low beams are 6000K, high beams are H7...
