Hi forum,

I want to replace the light bulbs (headlights) in my 2004 Volkswagen Passat with something better than the standard light bulbs. I don;t have Xenon lights.

These are the low/ high beam lights I'm looking for:
Philips BlueVision

Can someone tell me what socket the light bulbs? Is it H7 and W5W?
The front fog lights are H3 bulbs?

Thx in advance!

Regards

Niels

H7 and h3 I believe
Also, don';t get blue tinted lights, they fool no one and reduce light output.
Get some Ostram (not sylvana) silverstars and be much happier

Thx a lot for the fast resonse bksuperman and nm+ :bowdown:

In Germany I had the Philips BlueVision in my Audi A6 - and I know there are also legal in the US even if they aren't sold here.

What do you guys think about Philips NightGuide bulbs?

I had some bad experience with Osram :thumbdown and very good experience with Philips :thumbup: . The Osram didn't last long in my cars.

And if I would choose the Philips NightGuide bulbs I should go with the H7S, correct?

There are 2 bulbs, both h7 per side.
The low beam is significantly easier to get at though.
You want the projector version
