Volkswagen Brightens up Golf with New LED Front Lights

Those of you with a good memory probably remember that back in late 2009, Volkswagen developed a new set of LED tail lights for the sportiest variants of the Golf VI. Now it's time for the German carmaker to introduce the same option for the Golf's headlights - at least for the European market. The new optional LEDs for the headlamps are similar in design to those found on the facelifted Eos hardtop convertible.

Within the housings of the bi-xenon headlamps, 15 LEDs form the daytime running lights offering improved visibility in all weather conditions over the standard lamps. The package, which combines the Bi-Xenon headlamps with the LEDs is priced in Germany at €1,310 or about US$1,750 at today's exchange rates.
