Super nice on the front end, afraid they'd get stolen off the front of my car around my neighborhood, though. Enterprising little thugs in the neighborhood would have those up for sale on Ebay or Craigslist in no time. I see them missing off of MB's around the Valley in L.A. too.

Turns out you passed me on I-95 South one afternoon a week before we picked up our Passat. I specifically remember thinking that the Tungsten Silver with tint was an awesome combination.

Looking forward to meeting up and sharing some mod ideas.

They don't make LED headlights for the Passat. They have HID projectors with LED DRLs in China. $$$

Yes, those are the ones that i'm referring to--as in the photo above. But I've seen pricing on them a couple months ago and if I remember correctly, each side was about $550 so I won't be making the modification anytime soon.

Hmm... $550 per side isn't that bad as long as they aren't screwed up factory rejects. Unfortunately it seems like a lot of the Chinese market items that are making their way to the US are factory rejects (our tail lights are not perfect ).

$1100 for heads that will probably require more $ to get working properly "isn't bad"...we must come from different neighborhoods!

These look awesome. Are the license plate light bulbs LED on the passat?

Also, wonder what bulbs go in these housings? Perhaps just replacing the bulbs with some good quality LED bulbs would make them better and suffice w/o the cost, give the brisk LED blink etc? Granted, they wouldn't look as good.

Anyone figure out where to get these Chinese brake lights?
