I thought these looked interesting & might look good on a Platinum:

Crap! All the headlights linked here won't fit factory Xenon. Didn't read it. Odd because those crystal ones I linked look nearly identical to factory (with the obvious difference).

FYI: That seller Neon Dials is pretty awesome. I ordered my clear fogs from them & the fogs were missing part of a gasket to seal the bulb in the housing tightly. 3 months after I ordered them, I emailed them about the issue & they sent a new wiring harness part of the fogs which fixed my problem. They were really helpful & quick. They had asked for pictures & by time I had taken pictures & emailed them, they had already mailed me the new piece!

That's not very expensive considering how expensive one stock light is from the dealer (around $1k). I want to see a pair of the black housing ones on a car. You could just add an aftermarket HID kit and go 55watt while you're at it.

I'd like to see what they look like installed... I think they'll look good without the halos lit up... the LED's look pretty cool

Funny how everyone wants to see them but noone wants to take the dive...Id only get them if my headlight was busted. But would love to see the chrome ones on silver and the black ones on the raven.

Well I thought I had a passenger side go out last night but it turned out to be a loose wire. If it were really gone I'd jump on these....Maybe I can convince the wife it wasn't the wire after all and get me a set. I would like to see something with the LED's.....AUDI is KILLING IT with their headlights.

Dealer, bwahahaah, who buys anything at the dealer anymore went to get a remote fixed on my sisters cts cause the key wouldn't work, the fu#Kers took out the battery and replaced it...($264) was the charge for the battery alone...wtf is that thing gold plated. Disgusting on how they take advantage of helpless old people that drive this damn car and dont know any better. Never again. As for the stock oem headlights they are abundant on ebay for around 300...and a 150 for the halogens...got mine for 200 after my accident but had to reuse my valeo steel ballast from the old light.

If anyone orders a set I will buy your stock drivers side.
If I can find the rest of the parts to fix my V.
