but lets get back to my question.

will 7" volkswagen golf1 headlights fit in a TJ?

RIPBiker13 09-21-2007 05:00 PM

They are 7in so they should fit with minor mods if any. My guess would be yes.

When you do it, do a write up. Looks like a cool mod, and I want clear lens headlights too.

I have never tried Becks, Another new beer for me this weekend....:)

yes they are illegal. but who cares? here in my 1,800,00 people town are only 5-10 wranglers. and i don´t think that the people at the governments car testing organisation know that the TJ came stock with orange blinkers.
and if they know i will show them that i imported my TJ from the US by myself. they never know how a US stcok TJ looks like...

normally white blinkers are allowed here, but they have to be tested and need an "E" sign on them. the only reason why these blinkers are illegal is the missing "E" sign on them and i don´t think that somebody will notice that...

:punk:

RIPBiker13 09-21-2007 07:55 PM

I hope not. I like those, and when I have the extra $$$ I might just get some too. :D It's gonna look good on that black.

nicolas-eric 09-21-2007 07:58 PM

that looks good on black TJs:

OK, now I officially hate you too, a little bit :p

I think that sounds like a pretty cool idea, the angel eyes thing would really make you stand out! I can't think of any reason they wouldn't fit, with a little "persuasion", after all, a 7" headlight should pretty much be the same as any other 7" headlight, right? Can you get one of each side by side to compare? The angel eyes might require some additional wiring or something, but it seems like it'd be a pretty cool project!

nicolas-eric 09-21-2007 08:17 PM

the two cables of the angel eyes only have to be connected to the stock parking light cables of the stock headlights.

they look like this from behind:

btw i´ve never seen a TJ with angel eyes before...

I doubt if anyone has ever sen on ebefore, cuz I doubt one exists, yet! You could be first! From the picture, I can see why some trimming might be required!

That's why I said on the RED TJ... But chrome belongs on motorcycles, not Jeeps. :flipoff::D

why?
and what has to be trimmed?
do you think it would be much easier without that angel eyes cables? then i would change my order to headlight without these LEDs.

RIPBiker13 09-21-2007 08:36 PM

Don't listen to him Nick, the angel eyes will make it more unique. I like them.

YNs always think they know it all! :p
