Andy519311/03/2010, 13:04After there is no one who knew how to change the position bulbs on a passat 3c with bixenon, here is the result with led bulbs without failure of the vag also on the license plate.

– Front and rear ceiling light: W5W 360° light – 2 LEDs or more (5 pcs). It is recommended that in the rear ceiling, the central bulb is W5W canbus and compensate consumption, that way they will not be a little lit (I have no idea why, but it is what they recommend) **.

To avoid the failure of fused light you have to place resistors, but as it is a bit of a pain, you can buy them without led failure, those that avoid the failure of fused light are the ones that have “canbus” system. They can be purchased on the page that has been given above Festoon brand (better to contact the seller for advice) or other brands such as Well-done or PIAA just look for them on the internet and if necessary have the canbus system.

The short-range illumination, also called dipped beam, confers side and front beam distribution, but without being able to dazzle other road users. This beam is specified for use when there are other vehicles on the road. The international ECE standards for headlamps specify a beam with a sharp, asymmetrical cut-off to prevent an excessive amount of light reaching the view of other drivers who may be preceding or oncoming the vehicle.[3][4] Glare control is less stringent for the North American SAE, whose standards for headlamps are contained in FMVSS / CMVSS 108.[5] The ECE standards for headlamps specify a beam with a sharp, asymmetric cut-off to prevent an excessive amount of light reaching the view of other drivers who may be preceding or oncoming the vehicle.

Reversing light mandatory

franXX16/02/2010, 17:17If you are worried about the consumption you can change the normal bulbs for led bulbs, the only one that will give you problems in the itv will be the front xenon. In mine I have changed for example the orange side for leds and in the galibo lights I have also put leds. I’m missing the rear and xenon for now I will not put them because mine has good lighting.

oscaroliver18/02/2010, 10:59Thanks Agustmaiz, I asked because I usually travel with the short set day and night, given the comments that there is more consumption of diesel and that the batteries are charged less, I opted for intalarme some daytime running lights.

After speaking with philips I have been told that the lamps are approved (they send you approval) and that if we motamos according to the approval (more than anything measures and location) could not fine us.

I have also been told that if you stop the mossos , they make you turn on the cruze to check that they are daytime running lights , if they go out you do not get fined ( EVEN THOUGH THE APPROVAL DOES NOT SAY THAT THEY HAVE TO BE OFF )

Minor defects

They are one of the oldest active safety elements and drivers use them mechanically, almost without realizing it. Car lights are just a hand’s stroke away and generally do not cause problems, but they can also cause a nuisance. The highway code establishes financial penalties for a number of infractions that have to do with car lighting. It is advisable to use the lights at the right time, because an oversight can be costly.

Nobody should ever think of refueling with the lights on, for safety reasons and because of the fines: if an officer sees it, the penalty can also amount to 200 euros. It is considered only slightly less serious than refueling with the engine running (which also carries a loss of points). The traffic regulations impose the same fine if you have “the radio or other electromagnetic radiation devices, such as cell phones, switched on”.

Fog lights should only be used when there is fog or rain so heavy that you cannot see a few meters beyond the windshield. Switching on the rear (or front) lights when weather conditions do not make it necessary to do so carries a fine of up to 200 euros, in addition to dazzling other drivers.
