The headlights on the Up are really boring and look as if they were designed 20 years ago. Are there any projector lens type lights available?

Not Yet, there are some HID conversion kits but not type approved and dodgy in UK as no headlight auto-levelling and wash

most folk just improve the light output with some decent bulbs like nightbreakers etc. I have LED side/drl bulbs but to be honest, getting fed up of the two tone lights!

Yes, I've put some (slightly) better bulbs in, but would never use an HID conversion kit as they look rubbish on parabolic reflectors like on the Up. I have fitted a kit to my Transit Custom SportVan (which has non-HID projector lenses as standard) and they're a huge improvement.

I'm not so much looking for more light from the Up's headlights, just better looking lenses.

The new Beetle (mk6 platform) doesn't have headlamp washers on them with Xenons. I think its more to do with the wattage of the bulb as my Lupo has 35w Xenons, but the Beetle uses 25w xenons.


They do have the auto-levelling though...
