Those look more like S80 headlights. Either way, be prepared to pay around $1200 PER headlight for any of the bixenon headlights.

They started coming like that on the 05 S60, NON R. Why dont you call the dealer,not many R people here going to be looking for S60 lights.

Those are not the bixenons then. They are the regular halogen headlights.

So in retrospec, these CAN be put in an S60 with aftermarket plug and play HIDs? Can they??

Wow, ugly headlights! Now that's important to point out but when you are 19 I guess the sensible things don't really matter! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

The halogen clear headlights in this S60 picture cost less than $300 a piece new, and IMO they look better than the older R lights. <br>They can be installed to any S60 or V70 without HIDs, many people have done that.<br>New HID assembly is 'somewhat' more expensive.

IMHO it's a waste of money. You don't even get projector lights, and putting HID onto those lights will give you worst light on the road than the curent R lights.<p>It is way to much to lose only for the looks.<p>If I'll be so ready to pay $300 each and go to all the retrofiting problems I rather choose to pay $1000 each and go the Euro R lights: better look and better light.

Re: Cost of new '06 Headlights? (doru)

hmmm, so doru.... I just don't know how HIDs would cause problems in them? is it because there are no sides? inside dividers?

Halogen and HID has a completely different filament, on top of being rotate 90 degrees. Sticking HIDs into a halogen based reflector will cause glare.
