The right headlight bulb burned out, I thought to buy one set of new halogen bulbs on Amazon. I found LED bulbs are very popular. I'd like to try LED bulbs. So, I google "VW Passat led headlight bulb change", and watched Youtube videos. Then, I bought one set of LED bulbs, and installed them myself

1. Remove the headlight dust cover to reach the halogen bulb, then twist it out

What about the alignment motor for the HID bulb? I thought that there was a major amperage difference between the two types of systems?

OH! THANKS FOR THE INFO!!!

The difference is that the HID bulb produces light by passing electricity through ionized xenon gas at high pressure. So, the HID bulb comes with a big ballast.
Haha :) No worries.
I changed my stock turn signals to LEDs, and I will share a new post soon.

HID bulb comes with a big ballast, which makes HID bulb light up. This LED bulb is a built-in driver, all-in-one design. I think LED bulb is easier to install than HID bulb.
The major difference between HID and LED is the working principles, and installation process.

Did you also convert your high beams? I've got the lows to LED but I want to do the same to the high beams but I can't get them to fit...
