Led xenon replacements

Post by DADDYorCHIPS » Wed Jan 09, 2019 6:08 pm

How easy is to replace the genuine Vw xenon bulbs for leds types! Is it just a case of leaving the igniters off? I’m not even sure what type of bulbs I have. I just know they are odd colours :( and they are a nightmare to fit back in once taken out!

Why would you leave them as xenon? It’s a prefacelift :) I just want my lights to all match! My fogs my drls and my headlights are all different whites!

id replace the halogen bulbs in the headlights for leds but the xenon bulbs which should be d2s id just go osram cbi or the phillips white vision to get them to be a closer matching white to leds. i would not get rid of xenon bulbs for led as the led wont be as bright or as good as the xenon. the d2s bulbs can produce 3200 lumen which is great especially if you get the correct bulbs. ive used led through projectors and halogen through projectors and xenons through projectors and decent xenon bulbs are the best by far

Pre facelift are d3s, no? At least that's what I've put in mine when replacing :lol:

Saw this company do bi-led upgrades to Caddy though

ahh your on about mk3 then i thought you meant prefacelift as in mk2 caddy as in the ones with same front end as touran mk1. you can go d3s to d1s upgrade as then will work as factory. the biled upgrade is having all the bixenon projector and gear removed and replaced with a biled projector and associated gear to make it still work as the factory bixenons work. most people on here seem to call early caddies prefacelift then you have facelift and then mk4
