    Burning out the ballast with the led bulbs or existing xenon ballast?

    More data needed.

    Front or rear, indicators or side lights or interior or full beam or breaking or I dunno.

    My experience with LED's hasn't been very good on my b6 other than interior lights and number plate lights and I've had/changed allot of bulbs/light clusters on the car in the past 7+ years I've owned it.

    Burning out the brand ne ballast with the new led lights seems like they overheat then blow

    Yes! The world is your oyster now with regards to how much choice you have.

    Go on Amazon and search for LED lights with the highest operating Lumens (LM's) I've got a set and are very bright at night.

    Also, older gen LED's where Sh*t and would burn out like Jake says above. Just read the reviews and choose which one to go for.

    Im 2 in years and love mine. They do run VERY hot so ensure you wrap the wires in 'Kapton' tape. (Heat proof tape)
