From what I've read, they will probably be a little more bluish compared to the fog lights. Of course, by how much, who knows. I attempted to install the new deAutokey D1S bulbs this evening and gave up. Seriously, how is one supposed to get their hands inside the housing to do anything? My hands are relatively small (wear size medium gloves) and it is way too tight. I highly doubt VW technicians are struggling like this. There has to be an easier way. I even removed the screws as shown in this DIY http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=78650 and the headlight only cants forward, not really giving any more room. I also don't fully understand the connector and how it's removed. OP states to "push in". I don't know, maybe I'm just mechanically challenged, but the engineering to change a simple bulb seems very difficult.

The 5500k should match the 6000k de360 very nicely:

Just installed the 5500K D1s bulb and I am loving it.

On the Left Hand side of the photo is the Deautokey, note that the right one is not stock!
The deautokey is whiter to my eyes and brighter too. The light is also more focus, I could see the beams while I'm driving (Don't know if it is a good thing or not).
Overall I am happy with the product. I also installed the front and rear turn signal bulbs and puddle light, they are super bright. Highly recommended!

For the past 2 years we have been selling these amazing Xenon HID with great feedback - we have stayed up to date with all the new technology. We feel we have made our d-series HID bulbs an even cleaner and brighter white:

Thanks - we have a few people running the new setup so can see if they can share photos. While brighter we don't want to have people who have our other D1S to be upset - the brightness lumen increase is about 200 which is still added visibility but the others are still very bright.

Thank you

Got my 5,500K D1S bulbs installed in my new Euro MK6 GTI headlight housings, couldn't be happier with the pure white color and brightness on the road. Makes carving mountain roads at night much better!

These were tested against some of the top brands and came out on top. We will share videos/sites soon.

You will really see the difference - recent feedback:

"I got around to installing them last week and we drove the car from Orlando, Florida up to Toronto, Ontario, including a lot of night time driving.

They are absolutely amazing! I totally agree that they throw a lot of light into the side of the road. With the amount of deer running around the Northeastern US it was a definite plus. My wife is usually very concerned about driving at night due to visibility and wildlife, but even she felt quite relaxed with how great our visibility was.

Thanks again for the feedback and help picking bulbs!"
