Re: aftermarket OEM spec'd HIDs for wk

I agree, 08+ conversion - the really dislike the 2005-2006 look, even before I started mine.

conversion is cheap too, just start slow and gather all the parts, it takes some time but you will have a nice look in the end.

getting parts to canada is what's going to hurt you though!

Re: aftermarket OEM spec'd HIDs for wk

Re: aftermarket OEM spec'd HIDs for wk

i bought these a while ago and finally got all the other parts to install it (D1s hid kit, harness etc..)



fit and finish of these lights is good, i'd give it a 7.5/10 compared to the stock..
the adhesive used on my lights was black and they were quite liberal with it so i'd guess opening these up would be a PITA..

now i'm just trying to figure out how to adjust the alignment of the housings.
