Progress wrote:Thanks! If I got a GTI it would be a 4-door sport so LP and PP standard. If I did a retro in the GSW I'd probably have a retrifitter do the job starting from BEC replicas since they mimic the LP cosmetically which I like a lot. Definitely two sets of wheels/tires would be necessary.
Sport trim would be the way I'd go if I was in the market now for sure but I think it's odd they cut the fog lamps from that trim. I disagree with Potown respectfully ( ) and literally think LP is a must. I'm not a snob when it comes to this stuff but they are probably the best headlights, best HID's, best DRL's, I've ever experienced on any car at any price point. I drive in various amounts of settings around NY/LI and it's safe to say it would be difficult for me to ever go back to a car with halogens. The cutoff on the low beams is great and none of the negatives with HID set ups are exhibited IMO. Adaptive lightning around corners doesn't involve swiveling (it's a dedicated light in the housing that illuminates) but it is an intelligent system that detects speed/usage of a direction/and steering wheel movement to determine whether it should come on or off.
Like I said in the original post there are retrofits that do the job of the aesthetic but I can't speak on the reliability or the performance matching OEM. I have BEC LED tail lights as we speak though and the customer service and product Ed supports is really good for tail lights at least. He's a hero on the vortex.
