Does this mean no Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals?Oct 29th Update
Appreciate all your patience.... you guys who ordered should be getting your lights by now or the next few days.
We had an usually long delay by Customs, it took them 2.5 weeks to clear before we could get the parts, normally just a few days... Hope you guys are happy with them.
We still have a few sets of the 2018+ R Headlights with LEDS in stock at the moment.
For the other versions, we are looking at early December to get more stock locally for shipping.
Light output on the leds are sooo good my girlfriend has the lighting package on her 17 Passat and I would argue my headlights are brighter.Hows the light output of the LED version?
Also, what happens if the LEDs go out, does BEC have any way of replacing them?
Just got my S last weekend and first mod is looking to be some headlights.
So I got the headlights and installed them and it was easy after looking at YouTube and the instructions.
The beams looked decently aligned and it was cold so I had given up for the night, but ever since people have been flashing me because my headlights aren’t aimed properly. I attempted to lower the beams but could not figure out how to adjust the vertical low beam. I see that it seems like a Phillips head screwdriver goes into that slot but it would not move on mine and instead felt like it was stripping. That was with a #2 and the #1 is way too small. Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
Also I don’t believe the innerprojectors do anything I have had low beams on and they are illuminated but there isn’t very much light coming from them and when the high beam is on it acts as a bi xenon and just removes the cutoff for the two outer headlights. Is this how it’s meant to be?
I had not, I have to find level ground and a building to do this at. My driveway is an in-line and just about everything else around me. I will probably have to do it on a wall at the grocery store.Did you pull your car up to a building while doing the adjustments??

I just couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to adjust that weird knob with the Phillips head slot, I tried snap on screwdrivers and they didn’t work and just felt as though it would strip the gear out so I stopped.
I just need to figure it out soI’m not that ahole everyone complains about by blinding people.
I believe I found the solution on Reddit they mentions 5 mm socket on the end. Just need to try it now.
Go take a look at everything today during the day and figure out where the adjustment is and find yourself a nice brick building on a level lot to pull up to tonight. I can’t remember exactly how far back your car needs to be, but a quick google search will pull that up for you.
i actually went to my uncles garage and did it, I lowered them once I figured Out I had to use a5mm and I did a pretty good job. I didwhat it said but I couldn’t get 25’ I could only get 17 so I followed what the guide said from BEC website and it looks pretty good and I made them the same.
thank you for your help I appreciate it.
I advise everyone to use a 5mm socket on the plastic adjuster for vertical-adjustment and then a ratcheting flex head 8mm wrench for the horizontal adjustment
do not waste time trying to use a Phillips head
