Re: (Veefifty T5AWD)

oem is generally really low because they go for white rather then blue because it is the brightest. <BR><BR>

I guess I'll be the first to dissent. I'm a big advocate of not tinting headlights or taillights to any degree (fog lights are ok, for yellow, although it's not my style). Although I must say you did a fantastic job of installation.<p>+1 on the wheels, though, I love them.

Re: I am so gonna get in trouble for this :p (mdms)

Nice. I'd been thinking about doing something like this for a long time, but wanted something not quite that dark. I'd looked at lamin-x but was afraid even the lightest would be too dark. Now I will have to reconsider after seeing it on our car. I have 55w 6000k HIDs so I am not worried of losing that much light output. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> And on my black car hopefully it won't be quite as noticeable that they have been tinted.<p>EDIT: The wheels look like Pegs to me, any chance of getting close ups so I can see the difference between the 18" Pegs? Thanks!
