I had a set of old PIAA low and hi bulbs, I think I payed around $30us for them some time ago. They look nice (for me)I have LED headlamp bulbs in my current car, and will be upgrading the GTI headlamps when I take delivery.
I use Sealight ones (available on eBay and Amazon), no issues with them at all, and around £40/set.
I will send a picture of them later, My impression is that they are too low, and that is (I Think) why they are only sold in latin America, regulations here a lot more relaxed.Unless OME, retro LED bulbs are not legal in UK, in Germany you can't even buy them !
I have LED head lamp bulbs, much much better than standard, but fitted at my own risk, no dazzle but poor beam separation
