if you want the xenon look, there's no way around MTEC superwhites... <p>if you want reliability and you want to SEE something at night (and in the rain) there's no way that you should get MTECs <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I'm still searching for a good upgrade, currently I have philips somethingsomething with a greenish touch, but the're not as good as I hope they would be...<p>HIDs would be an alternative, but it's not legal to go with aftermarket ones, unless you have HIDs right from the factory... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><br>(edit: in germany)

I upgrade to HID's with every car i've had as with the S40. I get them at an awesome deal ($75/kit...includes, ballasts, bulbs, wires. just plug and play) i went with the 8000k's and love them! would never go back to halogens! I can get you that price if you want. it would be plus shipping tho!

I have OSRAM Nightbreakers and work a lot better than oem. I used to have HIDs until the wiper motor fried and I went back to halogens.
