Well is your car halogen or HID? I just looked for D1S LED for my car and they vary from $60-160 with modules you have to attach. I already get flashed from time to time, not sure I need to make them brighter.

In that case, anything is an upgrade. I would try the LED if you can afford it.

Your best bet for a brighter light in your halogen housing is the deautokey h7rc kit, I personally have them and they are great

I concur. I haven't seen any LED kits that will fit in our halogen housing, though I hope deAutokey is working on it!

Thanks for the support everyone, we appreciate it - listing can be found here:
http://deautokey.com/product/mk6-gti...-and-resistors

We use high quality no-tap adapters - h7rc for reflectors and HID ballast that ignite with your car's low voltage - this video shows it in the MK6 JETTA, it is the same kit - you just have the extra adapters for the MK6 GTI/GOLF model:
