I want to buy some new healights for my gli, and I am having a hard time differentiating which projector headlight is better.
I believe there is the Helix.....http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...25515 and there is the FK, i think...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...77556.
can someone post pictures of both beam patterns? I want the light that emits the better beam...I have tried searching but there is not enough information out there.
thanks guys.

Re: Which projector headlight is better? (TornadoPete)

Thats a good question, its hard to think this lights are worthwhile when we are constantly pushed pics of what they look like and not how they function with the halogen bulbs. As bad as stock Jetta lights are, it would definitely suck to end up with even worse lighting just for a "cool" style which is even questionable itself. Vendors.. can anyone please post some decents pics?????

Please keep in mind that the actual projectors inside headlights are NOT made by the ppl making "branding" the headlights hence Depo, Hella or whoever they use subsupliers for the projectors, so chances are the two headlights you show use projectors from the same source, not saying they are identical.

Now, can someone please post pics of the beam patterns of both lights?

On these you can NOT get them out not on the Mk3 nor Mk4 versions!
The plastic rear housing is moulded "around" the projectors and only have small rubber caps in the rear...

... unlike the original (which also Depo uses) of big caps in the back.
