I'm still trying to find out if I can just drop in the oem bixenons but I think my year-model is already configured for the afs xenons but missing the wirings and levelling sensors. I'm at the moment using this zenon match..

What they actually look like. The projector on the touareg has a nice cut off too so it might not actually be blinding if I drop in a hid kit.

Oem low beam projector halogen bulbs runs at 55watts right?. I don't think you'll have a problem running 50watts hid.... On my old Mk4 I run the oem european hids which are 35watts 4,300ks.

It's those cheap high wattage bulbs(80watts) on ebay that melts housings but the raybrigs and hoens are good.

I need to tell my wallet tomorrow that I want some 50watts 4500ks. :rofl: ... Do I need to disable my DRLs or probably get a euroswitch since when your running on drls the low beams is on 80% of power?.
