I have no idea what happened to xtralights, I ordered from them and had no issues at all and got them in 4 days. Maybe they sold out on supply I don't know. Sorry to hear everyone's troubles with them, doesn't even look like now the one's I purchased are available anymore. I would not have recommended them had I known they would have these issues, but like I said only reason I recommended them was bc of price, performance of the bulb and how quickly i got them.
I picked up some from Luce at h2o this year. $20/pair, just put them in yesterday and so far so good. No codes or anything either. We'll see how they go. Don't mind the dirty car in the pics. She's fresh off of a 9 hour drive back from Ocean City, MD.
I finally got someone at Xtralights to answer the question about the delay. Their response was that they have had "issues" with the version 1 of these lights and are expecting to get version 2 in by 10/15. They will then be fulfilling orders. We shall see what happens.
xtralights have removed those drl's from their site now.

Bump it up.
Only to express my anger towards Xtralights. I would never wish their customer service upon anyone.
After filling out a page long Return Material Authorization form and shipping a bulb back to them on my dime, I haven't heard from them in almost 5 weeks. Knowing what I know now, I would have just paid the extra $10 and bought the bulbs from Vleds or elsewhere.
I ordered some from somewhere else that'll be here friday now, but I plan on getting the 5k ones from vleds once they're back in stock. I talked to vleds and they did promise to get more, but that they aren't that popular, so they aren't in a rush to get them. Of course they also said they don't recommend them for drls, but who cares, they look great and others here have reported no issues with them.
If you know of anywhere else that has those in 5k, please pass it on. I'm not interested in having any type of bluish tint to my lights.
I further share all your anger towards xtralights.
I ordered my drl white led lights. Got no lights after 2 months .Called them and they said that its been shipped. Cancelled it, reorder it back. finally got it in 2 weeks time. Was happy. Tried it on. Saw the error came up on the cluster. Was angry. Saw the bulb lit red instead of white .. major explosion in my brain!!!!WTH
I asked vled customer service:
I am looking for a bulb that does not require any extra wiring, just plug and play and does not give any error codes. Thanks in advance.
Unfortunately, you will not find an LED that will not throw codes on a VW vehicle.
You will have to add load VIA load resistors.
