Daylight running lights - LED

Post by bertj » Wed Sep 20, 2017 1:16 pm

Has anyone fitted B8 DRL's with LED's?
I understand that the fitting is W21W and must be canbus acceptable to prevent bulb out messages. There seems to be dozens of suppliers but I'm very wary about the quality of them.
I'd be grateful for comments about brightness, quality, etc.
Thanks in advance.

I've used HIDs direct for previous cars. Doing it on my B8 is kind of on my list but not sure I can be bothered at the same time. Seems a faff to get to them

I presume the op is talking about the standard fog light type DRL that look yellow, I did them in my B7 and CC but not looked into it on my B8 yet.

Thanks for the replies. Yes I do want to replace the DRL's next to the fogs. Unfortunately I've bought LED's for older Passats and Golfs with very mixed results; many were dim/blue rubbish that's why I was wondering if anyone had installed some on a B8.

I switched the standard bulbs for a set of w21w less from hids direct, they are fab! It's an easy job to fit them, will post some pics of them! Been in the car for about a year now and looking to change the fogs now before Christmas.
