    VW CC 2013 DRLs

    Hi Guys,

    I have just got this car and do like it.
    I am slightly annoyed at the fact that it came with bi xenons which look great only to be let down by cream looking drls?

    Has anyone changed these for cooler looking bulbs or even, dare I say it, leds?

    I know there is a post already on here about cc and drls but thats the old passat cc, and not the new cc

    thanks guys

    Beware when changing bulbs as the CAN system can pop the bulb failure light on the dash if not careful

    Have changed standard bulbs for LEDs and this is the case, because the ratings are different the car thinks there is a fault and puts the warning light on which is annoying to say the least

    Yes thanks, the whole point would be to have an error free replacement.
    I had an astra as a last car and managed to get cooler/whiter looking dlrs from ebay, they were a japanese make amd worked error free.

    People in the vauxhall forum really helped out by confirming test results etc, it seems this forum is not that busy on small tweaks like this, maybe because the cc is not as common as the astra?

    Does seem quiet on here.....................

    I am not sure of a fix for this as I have not tried, maybe speak with someone like Team HARD or Prestige Performance Center GB sorry cant copy paste link but Team HARD run BTCC cars and the like including a CC and PPC supply parts to people like you and I and Team HARD so maybe some help there?

    The bulb type is pw24w and when you take of the cover its the bulb in the long plastic stalk. I have changed mine had two sets of bulbs, one set from eBay that gave errors, and the current set from aliexpress that have been perfect for 3 months.

    You can also have the central electrics recoded to remove bulb failure monitoring.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I can verify that I've ordered these exact bulbs, fitted them today and they are 100% error free. Plus they finish off the look of the car beautifully exactly as we all wish VeeDub had done in the first place!
