      Can anyone that has them on their cars please post pics and let me know what brand they are? Im trying to decide which ones will look the best on my platinum gray TDI. I was looking at the ones from black forest but i really wanna see them on a car first.

      Thanks.

      In short:

      Remove headlights
      remove covers
      mask
      paint
      glue covers back on

      It is a pain in the ass to do and I don't recommend trying it unless you have a second set of lights. Since the DIY links on Vortex aren't working I would search on GolfMKV.com for a DIY link.

      I used to have a DIY too...



      In short, I cut them open with a dremel and put them back together with waterproof repair tape.

      I'm interested in doing this too, but i'm probably going to go with the tint.

      JOHN - ah! Those are the wheels I have been thinking about putting on my mkV. Any more pix?

      Don't tint your headlights... It looks like an 80's Mustang with those GTS covers and it blocks the light output, dimmer headlights is dumb.

      Don't tint, the lighting is craptastic enough as it is. Either paint the inners yourself or buy a set of aftermarket lights. ECS has quite a few options.

      No more pics with the A4 wheels on the Jetta as it's just my daily driver. Threw the wheels on when I got wheels for the A4.
