DVN visited Automechanika last week, and discovered interesting aftermarket lighting products.
Osram presented a new retrofit HID headlamp set, new halogen and HID bulbs, and new accessories. They also showed LED retrofits for incandescent signal bulbs—not legal in Europe, but already on the market in North America. Watch for an upcoming DVN special feature on those.
LED retrofits for incandescents
Following the LEDriving Xenarc HID retrofit headlamp set introduced in 2014 for the Audi A4 B7, now Osram are launching a set for the VW Golf VI. A favourite of tuning fans, the Golf VI can now be legally upgraded from halogen to HID headlamps. The new lamps are equipped with D8S lamps for low and high beam, LED DRL, and LED signal lighting, all in OEM quality.
