mk2 2017 SE Nav headlight bulb

Post by Padster63 » Thu Oct 15, 2020 11:27 pm

Is it possible to upgrade the low beam h7 halogen bulbs in our 2017 SE Nav. The OEM bulbs are really quite poor for a modern vehicle. We have on had the car for a few weeks and am not impressed with the amount t of light they currently give out.

I used Phillips Racing Vision on my GTi Golf which had halogen lights and her indoors is using them on her Polo Blue GT - can recommend these
The Phillips Diamond Vision are brighter but not road legal

Cheers, I'll check them out. Are they the GT200 version and are they a better choice than installing LED's.

Haven’t tried the GT200 version as they have only recently been released
The LED’s are better in my opinion but replacement items are not road legal
