I visited my local shop today found out these headlights will eventually become available sometime soon. I love the round shape design. As a B5er I know what everyone will ask, a “GB”, the shop said it is possible but they need to wait for the official pricing so that they can hold a “GB”. Somehow is a benefit for the Canadian buyers because the brokerage/custom fees are a killer.

My local shop is:
www.concept1.ca

New for B5....


New for B5.5....


Similar to other brand.....

Hmmmm...looks very, very interesting! :thumbup:

I see they also come in chrome or black...nice! Bonus...angel eyes too! I wonder if they are HID or projector only...

Hey Cullen...cancel my order! :lol:

It will be interesting to see pricing and quality.

wait....i dont see angel eyes for the b5, only the .5's
It looks like the catalog has the words "ANGEL EYES" on both pages, no? :???:

This will be awesome. I would rather have these over HIDs any day, and if they are HIDs, then they are that much better!

Bleser, nope. Looks like AE for the 5.5 only.
OK. Just want to clarify what I’ve seen today.

There are two models for the B5, one is round shape Angel Eyes and other is the ordinary projector style. One new Angel Eyes model for the B5.5. According to the shop said to me it is not likely a Xenon or a Bi-Xenon model.

I was told the oem european beam pattern is a marked improvement from what we get on this side of the pond.... :sad:

Interesting that they list "black" and "chrome" as options. I wonder if you'll be able to buy factory Joey-modded lights.
