    Passat B8 headlight upgrade

    I have a Passat B8 2016 & I’m not happy with the headlights, they are not bright enough. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    The B8 Passat does not have HID Headlights (or what I would refer to as Bi-Xenon Headlights for low and high beam).
    3 options available (depending on trim levels); Halogen / LED (low-line version) and LED (Hi-line version).

    Hamed would possibly own a Comfortline / Highline (without Luxury Pack).

    Nice mate.
    There should be a few options for you for bulb replacement.
    However for the sake of other motorists, if you are going to go down the road of changing headlights etc, please ensure you do it properly to ensure the safety of not only yourself, but the other road users. Quite a few posts online regarding replacement headlights / washer units / level sensors etc.

    Thank you, I think I will go with the bulb option instead of changing the headlights.
    I might be able to do it myself ?

    It is a H7 Bulb that you need.
    Here is a good Bulb Finder site: Automotive | OSRAM Automotive

    Im actually interested to hear if anyone has done the LED Reflector upgrade to the LED lens unit (one with dynamic light assist where it shutters out cars). bit annoyed how the Wolfsburg edition comes with the garbage LED refletor lens
