I was thinking they would fit well with the LED euro GTI tails I think I will probably pay way too much for.

But the tails are so worth it. They look amazing. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

So, now that more and more MKVI's are hitting the road... more and more of us are going to be playing around with things.
It got me to thinking that a "Lighting" thread may not be a bad thing... until we get the FAQ stickies up and running. I will merge other lighting threads into this and it can be our one-stop-question-and-answer-shop for a while.
I will start with this. I have a set of Ziza LED City Lights (with resistors) that I got from ECS Tuning earlier this year. I have been using them on my Touareg... but wanted to check something out on my GTI.
I took the Ziza lights and swapped out the license plate lights on my GTI. They fit into the socket nicely... the lit up perfectly --- but for some reason threw a "Check License Plate Lights" warning. Damn... so the original W5W bulbs are back in. This experiment was a failure -- but there will be more.
I have gone through my owner's manual and searched high and low to get the bulb types and have not had any luck. I'm looking for the bulb types so I can do some upgrading.
Headlight Bulb: ??
High Beam Bulb: ??
City Light Bulb: (small W5W looking bulb inside the high beam reflector area) ??
Fog Lights: ??
Now that I'm posting this... someone will come along and say "hey dope --- the info is right here at xxxx"
I'm prepared for the ridicule --- I'm a big boy and can take it.

Thanks for the all excellent info as I've been in search of the same. And I looked in my manual as well and I couldn't find it either!
Anyway -- TREGinginCO what bulb upgrades are you planning to do? I have a 2010 JSW TDI with halogens and want to upgrade as well but am not well versed...
Thanks in advance.
This thread is one of the best comparisons of different vendors that I've seen. The thread isn't well laid out, but there's a lot of good "real world" comparison in it.
Here is probably what I'm going to do for my normal lights until a good OEM hid kit is put together.

I'm intrigued by the PIAA lights as linked to in the previous post for main headlights.
I may do the chrome/mercury city bulbs that burn orange when lit up that you can get from TMTuning.
I may also look for some new fangled LED city light bulb as well.
I will be purchasing a Euro headlight switch --- depends on what Santa brings me!!
I read the thread about the headlights on the 2010 GTI, but does anyone know if the halogens in the 2010 Golf Wagon TDI (Canada Version) or I imagine the 2010 Jetta Sportwagon (USA version), which are the same car, have the same replacement bulb numbers are the GTI thread. Coming from a 2007 GTI with xenons, I have my concerns about going back to straight halogens and would like to replace the bulbs with some autolumination super white bulbs or equivalent. The car arrives next week and I'd like to order them to change upon arrival.
No, they aren't the same car. The 2010 wagons have the mkvi front end. If the halogens aren't the same, they look darn similar.
I've got a couple of these on the way to replace the low beams. I'll take a look at the high beams when I'm swapping them and confirm they are h15's.

Use 2009. Same car.
edit: Had the bulbs out yesterday. H7 low beams H15 high beams/DRL

For this car, for the low beam, the bulb is an H7, looks like the high beam is H15. They are not H13.

Anyone know the size of the foot well lamps on a 2010 GTI??
I don't mind having the footwell lights on while driving at night but the color difference between the yellow/white bulbs on the floor and the bright white led gauges bothers me Looking to replace the floor bulbs with some bright white LEDs
Thanks for the help!
