MK7 GTI and Golf Headlights…. Get LED DRLs on your Halogen Car

August 20, 2015
|

Looking the get the HID lighting package looking on your MK7 Golf or GTI?  These Helix lights are the perfect way add the awesome looking LED DRLs for a fraction of this cost.  These lights are simple to install and will not leave you with any complicated wiring or bulb errors after installation.

 

Here is a picture of a MK7 GTI with Silver MK7 Helix Lights and a MK7 GTD Grille

MK7 GTI Helix Lights

These Helix lights are offered with a red stripe or a chrome depending on which aesthetic you prefer.  They are a plug and play replacement for vehicles that come from the factory with halogen lights and are not to be installed on vehicle already fitted with the MK7 Lighting Package.  Its also important to note that the when installing these lights in your halogen MK7 you will need to swap the grille to a lighting package one if you want the line through the headlight to match up with the one in the front grille assembly (see picture below for comparison or a DIY video HERE)

    Hey Paul,

    I know you don’t have a lot of people asking this question, but can you post a instructional video on how to remove the front bumper and headlights of a B6 Passat?

    Would really appreciate it.

    thanks,

    Rahul Raman

      Thanks for check out our videos. I’m sorry but this isn’t something we would likely have any time in the near future.

    Paul – I recently purchased a 2015 GTI and am interested in upgrading lighting. 1) How do you rate Helix vs Winpower lights? 2) How do you choose a HID kit, do they come with mounting instructions for your lights, and do they come with new bulbs for both low and high beams? 3) What would I have to do in order to have DRLs and Fog lights on at the same time, but not the Headlights?

      Helix vs Winpower we cant speak to the difference as we have not had any direct experience with their lights. 2. HID Kits vary greatly and you should try to do some research and compare. We recommend theretrofitsource. 3 Im sorry we don’t know as we have not worked on it but coding would likely be able to solve that.

    Paul,

    On the Helix lights for the 2015 GTI, I feel that the drivers side light is mis-aligned. It is pointing left and down. Where are the main light adjustment points and would I need to pull the head light out to make the adjustment?

    I own a 2015 golf sportwagen TSI S model and was told by my VW dealer that i was unable to upgrade to the VW lighting package. Will i be able to install these Helix in my GSW? Not sure if you’re aware but S models differ from SE and SER when it comes down to lighting(something about a module). For instance mine does not come with an auto mode light mode. Thanks!

      Yes these will work on a MK7 Sportwagen with halogen lights. The auto and non auto lighting doesnt affect anything with these lights.

    Hello Paul! I have 2 questions for you:
    1. what are the differences between a headlight that has the Low Beam – H7 Bulb (not included) and the ones that are included.
    2. Do you know by any chance the price of $559.99 is for 1 headlight or both?

    Thank you very much!

    • Paul Barrett
      |

      The price listed is for both headlights. As far as the first questions Im sorry Im not sure what youre asking.

    Thank you for your answear Paul!

    Regarding the first question, in the description of the headlights it said: ” Low Beam – H7 Bulb (not included)”. The headlights presented on your youtube channel was also without this H7 low beam bulb?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hello Paul

    I was wondering if you can make a video or talk about a mk7 gti bumper on a vw golf. I would like to learn more about the golf to gti conversion.

    Regards, Julian

    Hi Paul, very nice article and video. I own a 2015 Golf Trendline 1600 cc, I would like to know if this lights will work for such a model? I’ve been reading in several web pages, several times that the only pre-requirements for this lights to work is that the car should be 2015 chassis and to come with halogen lights… Am I right?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Paul Barrett

      IM sorry that is not a US model so we cant be sure.

    Hi paul! I have a 2016 gti with lightning package and was wondering is there anyway I could use these in my vehicle? Would really like to change them to these silver ones. Please as soon as possible, thanks!

    Hi does the chrome gti headlights come with hid installed already? And also will this be available in UK right hand drive any time soon???

    • Paul Barrett
      |

      We are sorry we dont ship to the UK.

  16. |

    I just purchased a 2016 vw gti. I did not get the lighting package but I would like the xenon lights. What exactly do I need to purchase? The grille and the headlights? anything else?

    • Paul Barrett
      |

      You will need them and if you want the HIDs you will want to add an HID kit.

    Hello, I was just curious if the functionality of these lights is just as good as the stock halogen lights? I get that they look cooler, and arent super expensive (which i like about them) and that they use the halogen bulbs, but I just wanted to know if the lighting performance itself is affected?

    Thanks, Sean

    • Paul Barrett

      They should be pretty similar but ours has a Xenon kit in it which makes it tough for us to compare to stock.

    Possible to make RHD and ship for UK?

    • Paul Barrett
      |

      We are sorry we dont ship outside the US at this time.

    Hello Paul, i got a 2015 golf trendline in Canada. do you know if this is compatible with my car? I don’t have the lighting package.

    Thank you

    • Paul Barrett
      |

      It fits all US models with Halogens we. Unless there are something different about the trendline it should work.

    Hello Paul!
    Do you have any videos for the e-golf?
    I’m interested in making my head lights the same as the e-golf SEL (currently own an SE).
    Thanks!

    Hi Paul, do you know if the MK7 headlights work with any other GTI such as a MK5, or if the MK5 have aftermarket headlights that look similar to these? Thank you.

      They would not as they are not the same shape
