When I release the e-brake, the DRLs come on as they should, but when I turn the euro switch to the middle (parking lights?) the DRLs dont change, they stay bright and the one inner LED doesn't come on. Even when I turn on the actual HIDs the DRLs stay bright and the inner LED stays off. Haven't messed around with it too much but if you have to code for anything other than the headlights they may be a bit finnicky

I think only lighting coding I have done is city lights off and DRL toggle in mfi..

Did you install the trigger wire with your Euro switch? Disable DRLs?

Installed the trigger wire. Didnt mess with coding too much since it doesn't really bother me, was just giving a warning of what to possibly expect if installing with a rear fog setup.

I ordered them directly from Frederick at Osram when they had a good deal on them a few months ago. Not sure if that's still going on, I don't think so though.

Same here


The price I paid is less than what you'll pay domestically.

I see them on light is transformation for $850 but idk if there is an option for oem xenons. Lol It's dumb that they set it up for halogens only. They could've made it for the xenons and had people buy the adapter that is so widely available

When you emailed Frederick did you specify you had xenons? This is what he said in the email to me:

To create the invoice we will need the following information:



Full Name

Address

Postcode

City of residence and State

Telephone

What kind of headlight you would like to purchase (Black, Chrome, GTI)

What kind of headlights you have assembled at this time (Xenon/Halogen)

Hmmmmmm, well My guess would be it's just the connectors that are different, if they don't fit maybe you can just be sent adapters for that from them
