Re: Do the euro passats offer the HID units? If so, can we order them? (jhutton91)

There are quite a few shops here in North America who sell the European HID units. Many people have done this upgrade, including myself. You can get HID headlamps for the B5 and Bi-xenon for the B5.5 from http://www.pgperformance.com

Yeah, SG, I have seen these. I was wondering if there was a VW part # and what the difference in price might be. Aren't the ones at PGP around $1500?

Yes, there is a VW part number (which I don't have off hand). The ones that you can get here are exactly the same ones that come on the European Passats.

PG updated their page and it says "call for current pricing." I think the average price is around $1200-1500 depending on whether or not crystal clear corners are included. With the Canadian dollar being so low right now, you can probably get a pretty good deal with the exchange rate.

Stargazer is right; the lights from PG is exactly the same as the ones we have here. As for price, I don't think there anything to save by ordering from Germany (or sending me to Wolfsburg to pick'em up...). The Bi-xenons are a US$1200 option - factory fitted, buying them over the parts counter will be a lot more http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
There is (was?) a guy in the Golf/Jetta IV forum called Niels who supplied a lot of slightly used HIDs for a lower price. If you dare to go there you might be able to save a few bucks.

I found an old picture of mine with a part number, but I'm not sure if that's a VW or Hella part number. It's for the housing only.

Edit: grammar

Do the units require the Euro switch to work?

HID assemblies
Euro Switch
Leveling Motors
Leveling control Switch
Cool Blue H7 High Beams
Blue City Light Bulbs
Crystal corners............... All for $1500 from PG when I got them. He included a Bentley CD since I waited a month for the leveling motors and made himself available until midnight (EST) the day I received them just in case I had any trouble with the install and even called me once a month later to check on it. Sometimes little extras are worth the price.. my $.02...

No, you can use your original switch but you'll have to disable your DRL's
