guys which aftermarket headlights accept the OEM xenon bulbs/lighting system? I have an autobahn with the dynamic lighting which moves when you turn the car.

None there isn't any aftermarket lights that take d2s bulbs. Most aftermarket lights use H7 or H1 bulbs Osram are the only ones to use a different style which are d8s bulbs.

I'm probably going the led route with these considering hids running hot and the leds being more reliable, less failure chances.. Could you please Link or pm the specs of the ones you are running in them? Would be dope, thanks brother.

Have you run HID before in these aftermarket lenses? I've debated myself on swapping to LEDs but my 55w morimoto HID kit is just so damn bright, I don't want to risk it being any dimmer.

i too would like to know how the LEDS perform in actually lighting up the rode vs the HIDs. I know LEDs can look better but they dont always light up as far/wide as HIDs

How much did yall pay for the spyder branded version? Modded Euros seems the cheapest at $469.99 (ebay (unbranded) are going for $349.99...) but since both of you bought the Spyder branded versions and have been super happy with them i would most likely spend the extra $120 for the piece of mind.

What coding did you guys have to do to get them to work properly without errors?

I only used these LEDs in these headlights but I have used 35w morimoto's with 5500k bulbs in depo headlights and I would say the LEDs are on par w those.. the LEDs are a tad brighter.. Looks like opt7 now sell "fluxbeam x" which is a brighter lumen..

Looks like the fluxbeam X isnt made in H7 size yet. So just core or regular flux beam are available to us.

The ebay ones you bought were branded Spyder? Cause i see these on there but the brand is labeled as "Venom Inc"

They look identical in pictures to the Spyders.

ill probably just buy from modded euros because this way i know for sure im getting them.

Im surprised everything was plug and play with no codding out errors. How easy did the LED kit wire up? Ill probably do exact kit you did

So I have the Spyder headlights, got them in the mail last night and installed this morning. I drive a 2013 Rabbit, I'm having an issue where the LED U-bars turn on with the headlights, then flicker after about 5 seconds, then shut off and throw a code. Code resets if you turn the car off an on again the code clears and everything works as it should for another 5 seconds or so then the LEDs shut off, but my OEM halogen bulbs stay on. Not sure how to go about fixing this yet, but just as a heads up.

I contacted the company I ordered them from and they told me I probably needed an LED resistor, which is what I thought I needed anyways. Just some sort of canbus thing to wire in. You can buy them for 10 bucks or so on amazon, its just mildly annoying they aren't plug and play for me.
