FS: FOUR more Sukanas Retrofitted Headlights!!

For Sale:
These are retrofitted OEM headlights w/ HID bi-xenon projectors. I have plenty of experience w/ GTI headlights making these sets probably my 12th or 13th set, LOL


Got these from a VW dealer in Thousand Oaks. Got a headache from driving w/ the box smell...




Getting the lights prepped!




Putting an end to the ugly reflector!!




Finally! and the the back..




I will not do color changes since reopening and repainting the lights are a huge PITA. So what you see here is what it is!

Chrome/Black





gone!




FAQ:


How is the wiring harness and do you get a bulb out error?
You still use the stock harness as you would on your halogen lights. And with these headlights and wiring setup, there are no error codes

Golf, Gti, an JSW?
These lights will work for all!

Bixenon vs Xenon?
Bi-xenon basically means that the HID projector serves as a low (regular) beam AND a high beam.. hence the "bi." In our case, both the projector AND the halogen high beam will function at the same time.

OEM Headlights?
As shown in the pictures below, I used BRAND new OEM headlights, purchased directly from a dealer w/ the help of "bud" @ golfmk6. Don't be fooled by the quality of aftermarket headlights.

Projector Performance
The pictures below pretty much speak for themselves. I've had OEM xenon's installed and to be honest, I was quite disappointed. Granted, they certainly aren't bad lights at all, but I think it's simply because I've been so used to driving around w/ retrofits that my standards were too high.




If you're looking for more than just performance, but show, these lights certainly do them justice. The clean cutoff and the blue band/flicker can only be achieved through retrofitting projector headlights…

My Experience:
Surely, I'm not an official vendor but I have previously sold 7 sets so far. I'm not sure if I should say their info but I'll def ask them to post their own review/thoughts if they'd like!
















and uh..


I'll end it with this:

I really wish I didn't owe money on taxes this year. I would pick me up an all black set of those in a heartbeat. Very, very nice work.

How long will you be doing these? I want a white set, but I definitely can't buy them yet.
