3) Philips X-Treme Power H7, with Philips Silver Vision PY21W and free Philips Blue Vision W5W.


if you're planning to use the W5W as sidelights, they don't fit, the factory xenons use H6W for sidelights.

i'm interested to see what those philips bulbs look like as main beam too!

the standard halogen cluster takes 501's but the xenon cluster doesn't, also not sure sure if you know or not, but those H7's you ordered will only fit in the main beam and not the dipped

the only place you'll be able to use the 501's is in the passat light upgrade

I followed the website and that's what it told me to get :'(

So what do i need for my GT TDI?

I need Side Lights, Headlights (normal driving, not main beam) and front indicators.

Heeeellllpppp.
