That being said, if anyone has a set of V headlights they would like retrofitted, they are welcome to send them to me and I can do the work to their existing assemblies. Like I said, I will one day transition to the new models, but I'm trying to take things one step at a time.

Where did you get your V aftermarket headlights?
The aftermarkets were on the car when I bought it. They have the string of LED's below the H/L beam bulbs and look OK, but the alignment is crappy and I can't seem to adjust the height of the beams. PM me with a price to retrofit the stock ones as I got them with the car.

Thanks,

Tony

Need some more light for those dark country roads, eh... Let us all know how they work out.

Looking up the G8 projectors, it would appear they take a number of different style bulbs. Would be nice to know which it is you're supplying as I am set up for H7 and have extras of everything.

Alright, after 6 hours of hard work, I was able to finish a set of Golf lights, and FINALLY a set of GLI Jetta lights. Here are the photos. It was near impossible to get a good photo without crazy glare hitting the camera lens, but I think these will do it. Everything else (the backs) are the same as the chrome. Only thing different is that black lip. Personally, I think they look the best of the two looks.

hey guys, I wanted to post some better photos of the GLI lights. I made another set of them tonight, this time with glass lenses. I can also say now that I can offer the Golf lights in the GLI style (chrome with black lens lip). Here they are (and yes, that is a white fiberglass mini Christmas tree in the back round still around from the winter..:

Nice...
Quick question though,is it just bad picture angle or the black lip is covering the fog light a bit ?
Thanks.

Answers to some more questions:

-Replacement bulbs for these can be found here and here among other places. The first link is better. Through long and interesting conversations through email and over the phone, we eventually figured out that the bulbs in the first link are produced by the same company/factory as the bulbs the retrofitsource is selling. The second link has the same bulb shape, but I am not convinced about the quality of that one. Having owned products from TRS before, I can say that the bulbs these lights use are equal in quality.

-About the fog light, the answer is both. I am taking the photo from a high angle. More importantly though, when I send these out the adjusters are lower than level to the ground. Once you get them you will have to aim their height correctly which is specific to your car. They will likely need to be aimed upward, which will tilt the reflector back and therefore angle the fog light up.

-When you are ready to order a set, just PM, email, or call me and I will send you a paypal invoice. You can then pay from payal using your account balance or your credit card. If you want, I can also accept checks.

I just put my order in! Really excited to see how they turn out. Jeff has been great to work with so far, and has answered all my questions promptly. I will share my experiences with the community once I get the lights in.

if I were to bring you a set of DEPO blacked out golf/GTI headlights, and glass lenses, how much would the conversion cost, and how long would I have to be without headlights on my Jetta/Golf wagon

would it or could it be same day service?

Finally, here is a photo of the all blacked out version. Decided to offer them. You can have all black, or black background with chrome projector. PM me for details on them.

I wasn't digging the no shroud look, but all black looks nice. Could you do a set with shrouds to help fill the void?

I retrofit my 02 and good god was that some work wouldn't mind paying someone to do it this time lol
