Any pics? Also, I don't understand if these are W8 housing or US B5.5 housing with an hid-kit installed? I basically want a pair of Euro Spec B5.5 Bi-Xenons, but I'm interested to see what it is you are talking about.

The W8 light housings are slightly different- I believe the W8 version of the B5.5 Bi-Xenon lamps uses a darker reflector housing-The W8 lights also include an automatic leveling system. Additionally, these lights are NOT plug & play- Hence for most users find the Euro spec lamps more desireable.
Here is a picture of jwil's W8 headlamp-
Hard to see much of a diffence using these images but....here ya go.


Here is an example of the normal Euro spec Bi-Xenon lamp- These lamps are plug & play with your standard harness. These lights also have the brighter reflector and manual leveling option-These are the lights I have in my Passat

They are W8 Headlamps Bi-Xenon, they are not EURO SPEC, I have retro fitted the connector so it can be PLUG and PLAY just like the EURO spec ones, are they are the same ones as in the picture above. imagestation.com is down right now, so I will post pics later.

Alex,
Could you still post front and rear pics of the headlights you were talking about?

Thanks,
Jacob
