Only the headlights I hope.  The tails are too.......too Altima'ish.  Let us know what you learn about the headlights.  I've always liked the BMW angel eyes.

Hey Rob, I am only interested int eh headlights.  I actually like the stock ones, albeit tinted.  These are particularly cool because both the projector and the high beam are round and have angle eyes for both.  Knowing FK, the quality will be good as well.

I can't wait to see more on these.

I figured as much since I've seen how your ride has taken shape but I had to throw that in once I saw the tail lights posted.  Anybody that tints their tails will most likey not put these tails on their ride.


On a side note...I really need to hook up with the crew since it's been way too long since I've seen everyone.  I still want to do the sport mode vag com change out and need some guidance on a TT DV change out.

The headlights are nice.  The dual projector lights look like the stock B5.5 headlights, which should make for a nice fresh face on the B5.
One critism about these aftermarket angel eyes is that the light rings don't circle the entire lamp (there's a quarter to a third of it missing off the top).  The BMW OEM angel eye rings circle almost all the way around.

The only taillights that look alright would be the second one (the one with the two stacked lights), but only in black or black-chrome on a black or dark color car.  The floating red reflector over the bottom clear lense is kinda wierd.

The last one is absolutely hideous!  There's no design logic with the overlapping random sized and placed lights -- it definately doesn't go well with the clean modern german look of the Pasat.
 
I'm not a big fan of Altezza-style lights in general.

What I would really like to see on the B5.5 taillights would be a thin (about 1/4") bevelled chrome rings that are applied directly on to the taillight surface to highlight the dual circular lights.  I think it would be a very simple, effective and tasteful mod.

Alan, I agree with you on the taillights...I can't see these selling very well, since that style is shunned by us North American German car fans in general.  Although the Europeans seem to like them more...Ironic!

Maybe I'll just have to put a boeser hood extension on to cover the missing part at the top.  From the pictures though, I can't tell.  Can you?

I knew the wagon tails were right around the corner. It was inevitable...though, I can guarantee you’ll never see them on my wagon.

Inpro makes angel eyes for the Golf Mk4, and the design and construction looks far superior than the pics above (the illuminated rings goes almost completely around)


will Inpro make a B5/5.5 version?

I am curious if the projector housings will work with xenon bulbs/ballast.  I am interested.  If these would work then I could sell my current projector housings to someone at a good price.
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

Yeah, those are very cool.  I don't know about the Golf, but check the inpro site out and they may have them there.
