      Assuming OEM headlights, the 2 options are

      bi-xenon HID: the housing will have a clearly visible projector lens. (May or may not have LED day time running lights around the lens)



      halogens: you will be able to see the reflector

      The car: 2012 Jetta Sportwagen 2.5 S 5MT - JDL Turbo kit with PTE 5858 .82AR - 550cc Bosch EV14 - HighFlowFuel drop-in fuel pump - 3" turbo back BuzzKen - UM Tuned!
      Movement Control: CTS Turbo subframe collar kit - NOS MS engine mount - BFI transmission mount insert
      Waiting to install: OEM Golf R suspension - UM SRI

      Are you interested on a set of Bi-Xenon?, if yes ping me I have a set in mint condition and it can be installed in your 2.5 wagon.
