PIAA Xtreme White Plus Bulbs

PIAA Xtreme White Plus Bulbs

I cannot be content with the standard yellowish beams from my Yeti’s headlights.

At the same time, I’m not ready to take the plunge and fork out on HIDs or LEDs.

So what are the best Halogen bulbs money can buy?

I want WHITE LIGHT. I want to see further at night. I don’t want to hit wildlife if I can help it. The Yeti is tough – so is a fully-grown deer or wild pig! 😮

And, of course, there are the foxes, badgers, rabbits and hares that all possess the same death wish

A pair of powerful white beams in the dead of night (when I love driving the most) should go some way in warning either the animals or me that danger is imminent unless I or they take some form of evasive action.

So, I’m going for these…

Let’s rip open the box and see exactly what they have sent me.

What I ordered.

VAG has not been kind to us Yeti owners as regards room to work in when changing headlamp bulbs. Only my thumb can get onto the spring clip holding the bulb in.

Try removing the fusebox cover and that should gain you a little more space.

I consider my hands to be of normal size yet still I’m struggling in here.

But I do it.  😎

So let’s get a new PIAA in there.

Don’t touch the bulb itself.

Repeat the other side then pack the original bulbs away as spares.

Carrying spare bulbs (and fuses) seems to be a legal requirement here on mainland Europe.

Don’t forget to put the round inner covers back onto your lights’ housings.

And put your fusebox cover back on.

Here’s what my new headlamps look like in the daytime.

Isn’t that blue tip just gorgeous?

To the Czech Republic’s wildlife… you’re welcome!

Feel free to stay tuned for more modifications I have planned.

You can see what I have done so far, here: Yeti Customisation

If you want the PIAA bulbs, they’re here on Amazon

And I am always interested to hear about your Yeti, customised or not.
