Im posting this article to warn those would be buyers looking to purchase aftermarket headlights. It all started when I found this website advertising direct replacement LED headlights from a company named Wplamps.com. They seemed like a legit company even posting many photos of the headlights on an actual 2012 vw passat. The price seemed a bit pricy but the look was nice a representative named Michael contacted me and informed me of the components needed for the us version of the vw passat. The first email informing me of the delay was that he ran out of the product but should have a new production within a week. Well as you can expect I contacted Michael to find out the status, only to receive the expected good news bad news deal. He started off telling me the good news he had a new production of the headlights (now for the bad news) then he proceeded to to tell me but for the lights to work it requires a cable adapter to remap the pins to make it work with the us passat. Okay well I sent this person (Troy) an email only to be told he's still working on a solution soon and it will cost me 100 dollars. Well you can imagine how pissed I was after payment in full for a product that already exisited and was a suppose to be a direct replacement (as promoted by Wplamps). After that I've been trying to get in touch with Michael from Wplamps with several emails to find out the status or refund my money. Yes you guest it he hasn't replied back. I guess those headlights never exisited, next step is to contact PayPal and credit card company see if I can get my money back.
I'm looking forward for a real true HID replacement headlights I'm sure a legit company will manufacture soon, so beware of companies from China promoting plug n play direct replacements I'm sure there will in the future.
