Hi all,

 

So i recently got an R32 mk5, and i was looking to purchase VALEO Combination Rearlight Set but i cant seem to find them anywhere, can anyone help out on a reliable place i could purchase these rear lights. 

 

Also what are the differences from the Hella headlights and the original r32 ones, are they just xenon upgrades?

 

One last thing, has anyone bought exled or exledusa? They have some cool LED indicators but looks a bit dodgy (http://www.exledusa....r-20052010.html) or (http://www.exledshop...-pair-copy.html).  If anyone knows where i can get anything like this for the r32 much appreciated!

 

Also I am from the UK, and i am new to this ahah :D

 

Thanks for any help

I bought my valeo led tailights from kunzmann.de, they were here quickly with no issues, but they are out of stock. I think all the valeo were made in 2007-8 so they may be out of stock everywhere from now on unless they make some more.
Also they are for lhd cars only so you either have to rewire your inner lights or remove the red reflector out of your new 300 quid lights which is easy to do but youre still taking apart brand new 300 quid lights.

Ahh i had a feeling I wouldnt be able to find them anymore, everywhere i look its out of stock, but im still on the hunt! Hopefully i can find a reliable seller.

 

Yeahh defiantly would be a risk opening them up, but the indicators look really good and i think it would be worth the risk, just have to keep a look out. 

 

Thanks for the help!

Yep, opened them up to mod mine myself.
Good luck in your search, a pic for inspiration.

I couldnt recommend more, i am still in shock, they are the real Valeo product, i didnt know what to expect when i bough them (just another knock off one that will look similar) but complete opposite as you can see from the pictures below. Grab them while you can! The only one problem is that it is coming from Germany so it takes around a month to get to you and also you have to swap the fog light and reverse light over but it was easy enough: https://www.mk5golfg...qam716is6e9b314 - Use this to help

Thanks for coming back to me, they really do suit the rear end of a MK5 so much, that looks awesome.

 

I'm seriously tempted.
