Now that we're back to morning-and-evening-commuting-in-the-dark in Seattle, it's a pressing issue. However, I don't have VCDS, so don't want to shell out for new bulbs if it won't make any difference at all...
I installed them w/o changing my voltage (then again, I couldn't find justification to drop $250 to just make my headlamps a tad bit brighter when they were an improvement out of the box). I also raised the beam a turn or two so it throws the light out better (and spreads it around better too). So now, the driving lights fill in between the front of the car to where the headlamps start shining on the ground. So, bottom line, without changing the voltage, i seen a very noticeable difference.
No More TDI
