      I just bought new headlights for my 2000 VR6 Jetta (1999-2004 Jetta Bora MK4 Halo BLK Projector Headlights". I know that you can wire the loose wires (LEDs) to the Parking light, Turn Signals or high/low beams. I was hoping to find out what these wires are before I install them. If you happen to have pictures from the harness in the car and describe what wire belongs to what that would be great.

      What I need is a description on the headlight harness from the car. Something like this http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?2364917. The headlight I got have 10 pins so the picture in the link does not help me too much.

      Great thanks for the regurgitated opinion you saw 100 other people post before you copied it

      btw im not the one who posted the thread. I just think its retarded someone with a legitimate, intelligent question had to go through 3-4 posts of people just posting rolleyes because they dont think halos belong on VWs.

      I recall seeing a pretty unique set on a candy white gti with an aggressive boser awhile back. He had reddish rings and it looked like it fit the theme quite well. Besides that, yeah i havent seen too many look legit. Ive got some Depos with projectors and glass lenses that are really nice headlights but they have the rings. I rocked em with the rings wired for about a year and now ive switched em off because i just see way too many f150's and dodge neons with them now.

      But ya know, do what you feel. I think alot of the accepted stuff around here is just as ricey and unfitting of a VW. IE. Black wheels. they almost never look good. Like, ever.

      Idk how much black wheels are accepted here. I dont see many cars that pull them off either. I'm not a fan of the corvette wheels at all.

      halo lights suck. i will continue to roll my eyes when I see them because they are garbage. I had a set and hated every second of them.
      The only way you will be able to get a nice set of halos is if you do a retrofit and hook up your own halos somehow... and that will probably still look like ****.

      Aren't you gonna get halos in your headlights unless you retrofit or buy OEM? Maybe a noob question but I've never really searched aftermarket headlights much as I was gonna do a retrofit. But the ones I've browsed past all had halos.

      Yes I do have 20th #0000 and no there was only one, there was another 20th made with mine but it had no numbers because it was a Canadian 20th.

      There was not only one. There are quite a few 0000s. They were show models.

      well i apologize since i thought you were and i do breeze threw each post before i quote someone. but 100 people try 3? and copy it? when they post rolleyes and i write my thought thats my own opinion, give me a breakk. imo halos can be pulled off in mk5's not mk4's everyone does have there own opinions though.

      I haven't ever heard of others, and I have paperwork proving that the car is legit. Plus you can take the VIN to the dealership and order that piece with the number for that car.

      edit: maybe I'll call VWOA and ask.
