Hey guys, trying to prepare for a long road trip and I started thinking about the essentials, lights, brakes, charging system etc.

I thought about the headlights and knew they were sealed beam, but wasnt sure what the availability would be like, so i thought I'd stock up on a pair before the trip.

searched online and found these:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/UNIVERSAL-7-ROU ... 43a85cb1ab

Seems like a pretty legit revision of the old lights, of course i'd ditch that silly blue light in favor of a more traditional color.

Thoughts, opinions?

Never tried them, I run Sylvania Silverstars H6024ST from Autozone. Much better than the stock headlights, High beams are actually useful :tu:.

Your thoughts then? :P


I had them in my B210 and like them a lot. The bulbs that come in them are usually junk. Had to toss those in the first week. Other than that, I'll probably put them in all my cars from now on.

I left the blue looking ones in the sedan, they're great compared to stock, in the wagon i put yellow bulbs, they're definitely worth the money in my opinion!

Sweet! I was thinking about some in my 71 sedan. I have a set of square ones on my toyota pickup and they seem to work ok. Great looking cars btw.

I should mention, I bought these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/69-79-Beetle-7- ... 7f&vxp=mtr
and they do not look good.
The light is a lot worse than an OE style bulb. I'm going to toss some hid bulbs in and see if that improves anything. I sure hope so. :td:

Got the Hid bulbs/balasts today.
They helped a ton.
I never took any pics with the bulbs that came in the housings, but I know these look a lot better just in the garage.

I used the housing mentioned above and this hid kit http://www.ebay.com/itm/110957394783
Low cost and makes for a pretty clean install. I am going to make brackets for mine instead of using the double sided tape that comes in the kit.
