I appreciate all of this information and I went out and replaced almost all of my bulbs. everything works but now my information system keeps telling me to check my DRL's, low beams, license plate lights, etc. along with the bulb indicator staying on. any information on that? keep in mind all my bulbs are working....thanks for the time.
Did you do the side markers also? If so those are canbus bulbs and that might be your problem also.
As far as the License plate lights go i dont know, I also installed everything but the Low beams and havent gotten any errors. Try putting in the oem low beams and see if that clears the issue
Yeah the LED headlights look great but oyu cant see anything, they're strictly for cosmetic purposes...you cant see ANYTHING with them in a dark areas, I count on street lights a lot. which is why im alsways looking for someone to tell me what HID's to buy. cuz those jetta 2-piece bulbs mess everything up.
can you tell me about the HID's you got cuz none of the ones I am finding will fit with tis 2 piece factory bulb set up. The ones i get plug in and work fine, but they dont click into place because that factory bulb is some weird 2 piece arrangement ive never seen before.
just for the record, the gli foglight is h8
Did you already get my number? As u can see I suck at postingand taking pics. Nokia h7, piaa 1156 bulbs, gotta look at boxes for rest. Overall I paid 130 for 5 sets. Very happy cause I got free installation. That's how easy it is to install.....

Are these any good? If so, will they throw a code I am not light bulb savvy. Thanks
These are the 1156, for the drl. I would like to replace those to get some nice brightness.
On the first page of this thread, there is a break down of the particular bulbs, and locations. You can get some from Ebay, and several other online distributors. Or if you have a local shop, you can try there too.
I ordered mine from Amazon. Just plugged in the numbers, like H7, 1156, T10, etc. etc...and went from there.
does any one know how to replace the city lights? like i know i have to go in the high beam compartment but it seems impossible taking the bulb out of the socket as my hands can barely reach it. And if I do i dont know if i would even be able to put them back in. Is there an easier way?
i have a question regarding the tag lights.. i purchased come off of ebay and installed them. other than them blowing the fuse they work fine. the problem i have is that the house for both lights faces outwards so the light gets pointed in one direction:

has anyone else noticed this? have you guys bought any that maybe curve straight down? or simply found a way to turn the left housing so the light shines to the right?
