so what the hell is the correct back-up light size for a 2011 GTI?

I just pulled my burnt one out and it says E2 W21W 12V21W

We will be honest, sylvania has many mistakes and DOES not update their information any longer due to everyone posting it all over the internet.

We have the updated bulb guide up to 2015 so if you ever have questions please let us know:
http://deautokey.com/contact

And reverse are 7440 - want the brightest, plug and play error free reverse for your car - check these out:

Same issue here. I didn't buy LEDs, but I did get the wrong bulbs based on the Sylvania guide. I had already opened them before discovering the discrepancy. Pretty frustrating.

I did look here first as well, but didn't know which was accurate. Bummer.

So the person who compiles the list doesn't know unless you actually see the bulb in the car.

We have a bulb guide we are editing to reflect changes and we are still finding it is not always right so we have a "model specific" sub-category for the change we found.

Our bulb guide/new site will be up next year - keep an eye out.

Are city/driving lights the same as DRL?

No, DRL are typically the headlights or LED.

For my 2012 halogen they are neither. When the DRL's are on and I switch the headlights on they DRL's turn off and the headlights turn on.

I just want to know what I need to replace all my lights on the front of my car lol. City lights and driving lights still makes no sense to me. Low beams, high beams, DRL's, fogs and turn signals.
