      Oct 28th Update

      We plan to have the lights back up for preorder after Nov 10, just check on the website.

      For delivery time, we are planning to have the lights here for shipping in early December.

      This new version is 100% plug and play, no need to re-wire or code.

      As a new feature, we are offering a LED Version for the low beams, these include a built in LED and special projector designed specifically for the LED bulbs. No need to install a HID kit.
      So, in this batch, the low beams will be LEDs with a special built in LED projector, not just a LED bulb plugged into a HID projector.

      [/B]


      Some of you guys may have read my old add, I'm doing a new one as there was some dated info, etc, that may have affected some people's decisions.

      This is probably the best upgrade for lighting on your car if you have the stock halogen headlights.
      I believe we are the only company in North America that has figured out how to get these headlights to work like OEM.

      Here is a video from one of our partners"



      To order:

      www.becautoparts.com

      Prices are in USD, and items will ship from within North America.

      For Canadian orders, please inquire and I can invoice you in CAD$.

      Features

      • Fully plug and play for the North American model of the Tiguan. Has been tested locally.
      • Bi-xenon projector headlights - functions as both low and primary high beams
      • Secondary LED High beam in the inner light position
      • LED DRLs
      • Sequential LED turn signals
      • Only fits cars originally equipped with halogen headlights, does not fit cars with the factory xenon headlights, so no AFS
      • Error free - no errors on the dash
      • Coding - some coding is needed to remove the LED DRL flicker when the turn signal is on. Can be done by a VW/Audi shop or if you have a VAG-COM or similar device
      • Full instructions provided



      I was able to get these headlights tested extensively, and here is the feedback from our main tested.

      "After all of this the lights work like OEM. DRLs are full brightness in the daytime, DRLs dim when low beams are on and cornering lights work, etc. In the daytime just the DRLs are at full brightness and when the turn signal is on the DRL dims halfway on the side that the turn signal is on. Everything works perfectly."







      Low Beams



      High Beams



      Video

      Shows no flickering of the lights once coding is done

      Just ordered these the other day, super pumped to have the come in.

      Question for the coding,

      A. What is the coding that needs to be done? I've searched the other forum but ended up scratching my head a bit.

      B. Do you think it can be done with Carista or do I need OBDeleven?

      You should be able to use Carista, as long as you can manually change some of the settings, the coding instructions are provided with the headlights.

      Just have to say, WOW. Totally worth the price, and the three hours of finger cramping. That was a pain to get the bumper off, but at the end of the day I couldn't be happier. Makes it look like a whole new car. Now I just need to sell my old ones lol. I will try to take pictures and maybe a video for reference.

      did you have to do any leveling of the headlights or were they pretty spot on?

      They needed to be adjusted upwards but it was pretty simple to do. I can find out what size socket I used and just cranked em just to the proper height. It was very tiny but I had one in my kit luckily.

      I will try to take pictures this weekend!

      If you go to the BEC Autoparts website and click on more headlights they're under that tab. Honestly best money I have ever spent on a mod for my vehicle. They literally turn heads, especially the dynamic turn signals.

      Only thing I'm running into is every now and then my high beams will shut down for a second then pop back on, repeat this for a bit. But like I said, it's only every now and then. Plus Ed is working hard to figure out why.

      I ended up installing my new BEC headlights on my Tig. The fit and finish is just like OEM! Really helped make the car look much more premium. The install was very straight forward, I was able to pull off the bumper in less than 30 minutes taking my time.

      I did you have to take it to the dealership to recalibrate the front bumper sensors?

      I did not, I don't know why people were saying that that needed to happen.

      I have an RS3 and I've removed the bumper three times for an intercooler and other various reasons and I never had to recalibrate the bumper sensors or the Cruise Control Radar.

      Everything works just as it should.

      Did anyone who installed these have to recalibrate the sensors after removing the bumper?

      I have these installed now and notice every little bump I see the lights "bounce" the internal housing isn't secured in place. Is this normal? Also check out my light pattern, should I adjust this?

      What have you heard about this style? Is this legit? Will you be buying these for your stock?

      I was looking at the installation guide and I noticed the ballasts are located what appears to be the bottom of the headlight. Does this mean that if one of the ballasts were to fail the entire bumper and headlight would need to be removed to replace that? I've had tons of bad luck with HID ballasts and I'm a bit skeptical about that part. I would love to pull the trigger on these but I'm a bit worried about the DRL or ballasts failing and having to go through the entire installation process again. Also I'm no mechanic, but the bumper removal/installation guide is confusing as hell with some details missing so this would be quite the first time project for me.
