Well I have had it a few days now and obviously due to having a ZS the DRLS are not a strip like the titaniums.

 

I was looking to upgrade them and the side lights as they are different from the dull yellow to a white. I notice in the handbook it says the DRL's are H15 which are my DRL/high beams , which i find quite strange. The only other motors to have these are the old Golfs.


Any recommendations?

I've also been looking at this and from what I can gather there is absolutely nothing.

 

There is a kit for £15 on ebay that basically is 2 bits of blue film that slides over the bulb and makes it bluer but not sure how this will look.

let me know how you get on would be interested if you find anything else out.

I have ordered something similar to this and will give it a try.


Apparently it gives it a whiter shine with a tiny bit of blue in it but not much should be better than the horrible yellow.

H15? Where did you find this? The sidelight/DRL are T10 bulbs.

Definitely T10s, looked yesterday myself at the lights and they're just a small bulb, the H15s are quite a sizeable bulb.

What model you got were talking about the facelifts 7.5 here.

They are H15 because their dual lights and act as a DRL and then full beam when you flash the lights.

Well to be honest the DRL's don't worry me but what I decided to do was up grade the sidelights and dipped headlights to Philips Bluevision. Huge difference and a bright crisp white light now. H7 and W5W bulbs came as a package.

Didn't you find the standards bright anyway? I think they are decent.

No I thought they were a bit dingy but I had uprated bulbs in my previous motor so perhaps its just being used to those

I have upgraded the side lights to blue ones and the dipped to Osram NightBreaker Plus's.  I had them on my old car and they made a huge different.  They are definately better then the standard ones are.  Just a pity there is nothing to upgrade those DRL/Full Beams I really find the full beam pityfull.

Great thanks will be interested to find out how they are.  My main concern is that they reduce the amount of light.  this isn't really a problem for the DRL's but I think it might be for the full beam.

I've just bought some replacement bulbs for my side lights (which I have on all the time) which are LED blue/white, swapped for basic dull bulbs.

Shall post pictures when i fit them this weekend!
