Okay that is pretty clean I'll admit.. atleast they are straight; my deposit r20s are like 10 degrees off either way lol.

Might be dusk shot but seems like there are hotspots and low saturation spots however. True nice projectors distribution light much more evenly, also provide a wider angle

For $350 no one should be expecting OEM light spread. For the price, the quality and output is 100% worth it.

Mine are kinda fucked, one light is slanted one direction and the other light is slanted the other direction. Very choppy looking. I'm sure it can be fixed w/ adjustments though. Same brand lights

The newer GTI (2018) have different headlights now (and tails), they look way better then the first gen MK7 imo.

Newer almost always looks better than older.
I just wish the headlight replacement was as easy as the tail lights.

Anyone tried the mk7 replica headlight look?

Headlights isnít bad once youíve done it. Iíve swapped mine enough times that I can do the whole swap in like 30 mins. Donít pull the whole bumper, just one side at a time and itís a piece of cake.

Top tip: put a microfiber under the corner of the bumper where it meets the fender. Youíll thank me later for the lack of scratches!

^^This

I have these for quite awhile and they have been perfect in every regard.. Birds nest wiring and all.. Projector light output is amazing.. Razor sharp cutoffs.. LEDs work flawlessly with bright 5000k white OEM color.. Plastic lenses are bulletproof.. Crystal clear after going thru all sorts of NYC weather.. Road salt.. 18k a year mileage.. Never fogged up once. Not one issue.. And yes I was way skeptical of these prior to I purchased.. They are awesome.. Had depo led projectors b4 these.. Wow those were such shit.. Nothing but probs.. I fully recommend these..

I got some.. I took a pic of a brand new Lexus RX in front of me and my spyders.. The spyders looked way better.. Sharper brighter.. I'm using led setup in my headlights tho..

Going to get these next.. Been unsure on the stripe or no stripe and lower turn or turn bulb inside dual u.. Decisions decisions.. my grill is CSG currently.. Saw a modified one off eBay listing that had painted the stripe,anyone running led bulbs instead of hids with this?

how easy is it to get to the stripe? Probably ruin the lens and fog it though IDK if it's worth the risk

I'm running opt7 led bulbs in mine.. Weak cell phone camera pics but the color and brightness are perfect IMO.. I'll never run HID again..
