      Heat wasn't an issue in reflectors, don't know about the projectors. It's only a 10w difference from normal H7s but it would be in a smaller place.

      As for longevity I put them in late 2012 and was...

      I'd be willing to bet that the hotspot is due to the bulb not seating properly. Even with halogen bulbs it can happen.

      I have had those headlights before and the projectors in them are terrible,...

      His car does not have the same cecm as mine, I know that for a fact.

      And I'd rather have the extra insurance, and less chopping up of the headlights

      Re: 2007 MK5 GTI Hella Dynabeam info.

      Bi halogen means there's a halogen bulb in the projector along with a shutter for hi/low beam.

      Re: Considering HID projector retrofit
