View Full Version : Halogen bulbs in stock headlights?

12-17-2006, 10:38 AM

I have a 98.5 A4 1.8TQM completely stock. My friend has a 00 Passat with angel eye headlights. I guess he has a pair of extra halogen bulbs that he said he'd give to me.

What kind of difference would I be looking between halogen and stock bulbs?

Halogen = Stock headlights

You know I was kinda thinking that, but the way he said it made it seem like they were special.

Thanks though.

He probably has super white halogen bulbs. You can find bulbs that give better output, but nothing dramatic.

just find some clear 80w H7 bulbs, and you'll get better light output. dont bother with superwhite bulbs, it just gives you worse visibility.

This man speaks the truth, many of them look better (whiter/brighter), but that doesn't always transfer to better visibility when you get in the car

The super white/purple PIAA halogen bulbs i have are pure crap. The only time when I actually see any of my light on the road is at night with no street lights and no cars around. If there are street lights around, its like i didn't even turn my lights on on..

Be careful pumping 80w of power through the stock wiring that is made to handle 55 though.
