    Yeah that tends to happen, I think our eyes just aren't used to a pure white color, I'm running LED license plate bulbs on my car in Cali, they seemed kinda blue but now they're fine and I haven't been pulled over.

    You should be able to get away with those ZiZa LED bulbs then. The city lights really serve no purpose other than looks. And I think they look way better than those bulbs that came with the lights.

    On a side note, anyone know if they have direct replacement Decepticon badges for the front/rear VW badge? I've found some badges but they aren't encased in that circular ring. I've always wanted to run those badges with my red city lights. The idea makes me laugh. BMP GLI, 5% tint windows, red city, fender and interior lights, chrome TSW Snetterton 18s and smoked Ecodes with Decepticon badges lol. Also will eventually trade out my GLI tails for either Bora tails or OEM Jetta tails.

    Right now im running just regular sylvania 194 ambers they serve the purpose for now. My next step is to get the harness and stuff to do the fogs. But i have to fix a few must have things first. Like cts, cat converter, and i discovered the other day i have a bent wheel so im trying to find a wheel to match or just find some new wheels all together

    I've tried creating an album but I couldn't figure it out. Forums aren't my friend.

    Do you like those bulbs? Are they worth ordering?

    Yes e codes are European specification. Also leveling motors can be used on some crappy eBay lights.

    I actually do like them its what i have in my jetta and durango. I actually have used gp thunders in all my cars for the past 2 years. The ones in my durango were used in another car i had last year and they still work great. However they work better with a clear lense headlight instead if the foggy type.

    As for worth it id say so i got my last set off ebay for $15 before that i ordered from gp thunder for $35. Ive been pretty happy. When i get my new clear 1pc headlights for my durango i might order another set but get the 8500k
