The low beam is xenon with 6000k??

but the highbeam is H7 halogen?

Could you write what is included in the price?
6000k is terrible blue. You want OEM which is 4200k and 5000k max which still has a little more blue than OEM.

You can use regular H7 bulbs, and they will fit in there without the need of any adapters, etc.

Depending on the the brightness of the bulb, you will see alot better than the stock lights, but not as bright as HID bulbs. The beam pattern will be the same as with the HID bulbs as the pattern is dependent on the projector itself.

I recently purchased Eds replica lights and wanted to post a review for everyone.

First, to begin, I have the MK7 GTI and was not a fan of the halogen lights or the projectors with the red light running through it. I heard Ed was the go to guy for replicas and after contacting him, he had a pair in stock for me.

I received the lights (with the adapter) and HID kit in perfect condition thanks to Eds excellent packing and immediately you could tell that they we're built with better quality then your average aftermarket lights. The plastic was nice and hard and the inside of the lights do no look cheap as they usually do with aftermarket lights.

The installation was very simple, all you have to do is remove some bolts on the bumper, remove the grill, and remove the bolts holding the lights. They fit in very nicely with no gaps between the curves.

Once I powered them on, you immediately noticed the LEDs we're nice and bright and the HIDs we're leveled straight. I also did NOT have to do any coding and I did NOT have any bulb out errors which made the lights that much better. I tested all the signal lights, side markers, DRLs, etc and all worked without issues. One cool thing I noticed was that the LEDs shut off on the side of the signal light as they are supposed to be. I am not sure if the DRLs are supposed to dim or not when the headlights are on, but they do not which I prefer since I like bright LEDs.

All in all, I am VERY satisfied with the lights and their quality and make. They work perfectly as intended and they really bring the car together. I have also attached pictures for everyone!

Get yours before he runs out!

Hey Jimmy,

I'm currently installing the headlights and I have some questions.

Firstly, where do I connect the red cable running from both housings to the fuse?

Also, it seems the new headlights came with additional harnesses.
The way I set them up (I did not see instructions on the diagram for them) was:
new headlights <-> new harness (adapter?) <-> original harness <----
as opposed to how it was before:
old headlights <-> original harness <----

Is this correct? Or should I have simply gone straight from the new headlights to the original harness (but then what are the new harnesses for?)?

I got my replicas last Friday but haven't installed them yet. I looked at my kit and the fuse harness with the red cable and a ring connector at the end connects to the positive terminal of the batt.

If you ordered the lights from me, there is a wiring diagram on how to connect it all up on the HID Ballast box.

If I'm reading the wiring diagram correctly, I'm assuming the red connecter should be connected to the battery at the point shown?

triple edit:

To answer my own question, YES - in my case I cut a piece of the ring connector off so I could snugly fit it against the positive terminal.

The factory will only do a large order if you want a color match stripe, however blue as on the e-Golf is available if anyone wanted that.
