Just got the new City/Park lights from deautokey.com, great people to deal with very prompt responses and all my other LED i get from them. so here's my review on these little guys, a simple nice looking mod you can do to your car with the bi-xenon headlights. These are error free, no light out errors occurred. Took me literally a whole 2 minutes to do this here's a little step by step:

here's the link to the LEDs- http://deautokey.com/product/mk6-gti-golf-osram-city-lights-error-free-plug-play

<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6373.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6373.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6373.jpg"/></a>

First, Pop your hood (self explanitory)

These are made for the Bi-Xenon housings like this:
<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6375.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6375.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6375.jpg"/></a>

Second go to the back of your bi-xenon housing and you'll see a twist off cap that looks like this:
<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6374.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6374.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6374.jpg"/></a>

turn that guy counter clockwise to twist off, then you'll see a tab looking thing kind of sticking out in the open, looks like this with all the ridges:

<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6376.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6376.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6376.jpg"/></a>

pretty easy to pull that out,

<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6381.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6381.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6381.jpg"/></a>

Here it is once it's out with the old bulb:

<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6378.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6378.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6378.jpg"/></a>

simply pluck that bulb out and put the new LED one in. THESE ARE POLARIZED so they will only work one way so before you put everything back together just throw on your lights real quick, if it doesn't turn on pull it out turn it 180 degrees and put it in. here's a photo with it in:

<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6379.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6379.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6379.jpg"/></a>

<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6380.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6380.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6380.jpg"/></a>

now that it works put it back in the housing, you'll get a slight snapping/locking in place sound once it's seated correctly in the housing. then just repeat for the other side and you're done! check em out! a nice little mod you can leave on at a car show while you're walking around that'll make your car stand out. here are some photos:

<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6316.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6316.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6316.jpg"/></a>

<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6308.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6308.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6308.jpg"/></a>

<a href="http://s26.photobucket.com/user/videotoasterboy/media/IMG_6317.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c102/videotoasterboy/IMG_6317.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_6317.jpg"/></a>

Here's a quick video install on how to do it also.

Should probably also mention that you need a wired euro-switch to operate the way you have it in the photos ;) :thumbup:
you actually don't! this is with the key off and out and the lights turned on, without the key in and on the hids won't turn on. so you can have them on and walk away with your key :)

Right, that is the stock configuration. Euro-switch needed if you want to drive around like that.

Thank you for submitting this DIY. I've wanted to do this for some time now, but couldn't see how exactly it was done. I will be ordering these LED's tomorrow.

Thank you for the review again - we updated with the photos because the code does not work with the forum.

That is up for the customer decide:
You FORGOT to add shipping, jumping the price to $34.99 shipped from bold-sport- we sell it for $44.99 shipped - a $10 difference. If you go with express mail the price is then $47.99 from Bold-sport, making it more money...

With us you get a LIFETIME WARRANTY, a full review with pictures to see the exact color you will receive. We also ship our items same or next day so you will get it quicker, you don't have to wait for an LED from China that will take much longer, and has a higher probability of being lost in the mail... And if something does go wrong with the bulb when it arrives, you have to pay to ship it back to China and/or wait for a new one to come from China...

So, if $10.00 is breaking this deal for you, we are sorry.

Thank you for letting us explain that :thumbup:

$10 is not a deal breaker for me, but they offer the same thing for less money. I used them before, and they will replace any issues with any LED just like you. So for the same thing it seems normal to maybe price match of be competitive. They also have full pictures and all that.

Don't think $10 is worth over the SAME EXACT product, but i guess let them suckers pay extra for the same thing.

We are not saying it is the same thing, and with the 10% discount going on, you are only looking at $5.00 difference. Where on their website does it say they offer a Lifetime Warranty? We could have missed it.

We understand where you are coming from, but we do not see any review of the product or posts about the product.
You never know what you might get, we have seen this company send different product from what they have on their listing all the time, for example:
http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthre...Series-LED-Front-Turn-Signals&highlight=OSRAM

Thanks again for letting us explain this as we are sure many other customers have asked the same question.

Finally!

Just ordered one!
:thumbup: Thanks for the order, it will be out tomorrow with a tracking #.

We are down to our last sets until the new batch arrives.

These are flying out! They took awhile to get right and error free, but they are looking great in the headlights.
