Nice, are they 4300K or 5000K?
5000k bud... Nice and bright on the car and a good light spread.
Has anyone tried the Polarg bulbs in the interior light fittings? If they are 10W as opposed to the normal 5W I'm wondering if they would be too bright for interior use.
I guess I'm old fashioned and with bulbs I know what I'm dealing with! :blush:
I got the full kit from T8rups last week, only got to put in sidelights(to match Diamond vision), interior dome and map lights, totally modernised the car!
Looks more 2011 than 2007 without looking like a christmas tree like some 2012 Audi DRL!
Trups is out the country on his hols, I think he will be back on the 18th but not definately sure.
Cheers mate! Want some Philips DV also what shop did you use for yours?
I got them on Ebay, not sure if there are any left as a usual search doesn't bring them up anymore. Try the link in the above link and see.
Got these in now, 50 pairs waiting to be posted. - http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/product...ml#post1468922
they are the halogens.
They will look awesome on my white paintwork :rock:
Trups i've emailed you re these & the boot light LED. These should also look ok in the footwells.
My MY10 with the Polarg's fitted.
Love them, absolutely perfect.
(Shot was taken during the day in my underground garage, some natural light)
Much better than the LED's I had on my old A3, they look OEM.
My opinion of these super bright LEDs is that they don't look factory/OEM.
Audi would never release a car with the whole back end lit up.
Just seen the following on a golf gti forum. Apparently this happened to a few people.
"I'm actually in a similar situation, I purchased a set of the "Polarg B1 Hybrid" bulbs approx 6-8 months ago for my license plate (also tinted blue bulbs), I had them on for no problem. A couple days ago, when I wanted to switch from the blue bulbs to led(with resistors), I found out that the upper part of the housing (contact point to the hatch) was melted. Worried there might be a problem, I switched back to stock bulbs, but then both sides don't turn on and computer gives me a warning. "
the polarg's are 10w,
if you look at my post the ones i had sent to me are 5w which are what you get as stock from the factory, they do look dimmer but give the white glow which is what everyone is after.
when i asked about the 10w from the factory they told me about the heat issues which is why i went for the 5w which hence the price of my upgrade are ALOT cheaper and due to the forum demand i dont want to charge a lot as its you that keep me going and enjoying what i do.
Just fitted mine, speedy delivery. I shall take a photo when it's dark and the car isnt blathered in M1 muck!
I checked my Polarg's today as I drive with my tail lights on all the time (and therefore my number plates are lit permanently when the engine is running) and the bulbs and housings are as good as new (PHEW!), but if peeps who haven't bought these already want to err on the side of caution, then I'd advise them to buy from Trups as his are lovely and white (not blue like some posted in this thread) and they are 5W like the OEM bulbs, ..not to mention a darn sight cheaper than what I paid to import my Polarg's, lol!!! :wub: xx
Well when the rain stopped, Hattie having an afternoon nap, I grabbed my buckets and washed the car.
Now it's shiney again so here's the promised photo from my iPhone 4.
Huge thanks to Trups, for a prompt delivery, faultless service & product. These lights look perfect against my ibis white gleaming paintwork.
Looks amazing Dude! They look every bit as good as the Polarg's, for sure! Trups, you is da Bulb King!! :wub: xx
Received mine today from Trups. Will fit them at lunch time! :D Top service as always.
Marine SS on left vs HPI on the right - a no brainer really! Click for sale link below:
Just to update on my Polargs, they melted both housings a little. I only noticed because 1 went out.
I'm back to the originals now and ordered some cheap ebay(5w) ones. Anyone else had any problems? can't see how they could be fitted incorrectly or anything.
Sorry to hear about your Polarg's Eddy, that's not good :(. I ended up putting mine back in last month after deciding that the LED's were too bright for my liking. I am checking them every time I check the oil and tyre pressures and so far - touch wood - there are no probs. I think it's the luck of the draw with these, some people have probs with them and others have them in for years without issue. :wub: xx
Will these fit / work on my 2011 black edition? and if so have you got any left?
