I have contacted VIVA Performance twice via email trying to get more info on their Euro Bi-Xenon replacement headlights for the R. I am tired of running over things I don't see at night until they are right in front of me.<p> I have not received any answer from VIVA. Does anybody out there have any experience with this product or the company? Their inability to answer me in a timely fashion does not inspire confidence. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>For those who don't know, they are listed here <A HREF="http://www.vivaperformance.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vivaperformance.com</A><p>Thanks,<br>JMAIII

That is why they are so expensive, they cost $2200 over here, prior to shipping and insurance back to the states, which is over $100. Recently, the bi-xenons jumped in price 28%, so his listing of $2299 actually a good price. <p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=55861" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=55861</A> <p>And as someone who has had them on his US Spec R for over a year now, they are worth every penny. Besides looking much better without that orange reflector, I can actually see far enough ahead to drive on the autobahn at high speeds, or through the very dark, no reflector country roads here in Europe. <p>Here is my thread where I detail all the lighting changes on my R.<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=40098" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=40098</A><p>George is awesome to deal with btw... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

So kelly do you think when you move back to the states that you will find that you will have any issues electronically with the new lights?

Hi John,<p>I am back to Boston now. I had briefly sent you an email on Monday requesting a time to field your questions, but never heard back. Either way, I am available now to discuss <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (George @ ViVA)

George,<p>I dug back through old postings on the Euro Headlights and it answered my questions about software etc. Just to be sure, the only thing I have to do is have the DRLs disabled through VADIS prior to installation. If I am off the mark please let me know. You should see my order today.<p>John
