PIAA Xtreme White Plus Bulbs

PIAA Xtreme White Plus Bulbs

29th August 2018 0 By Yeti Admin

I cannot be content with the standard yellowish beams from my Yeti’s headlights. PIAA Xtreme White Plus bulbs will change all that.

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, but 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.

Yes, what I ordered.

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

🧙‍♂️ wizard Yetisdorf is typing…
Try removing the fusebox cover and that should gain you a little more space!

Okay wizard. Thanks!

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

not easy to work on TSI engine

But I do it. 🥴

So let’s get a new PIAA in there.

I don’t want to 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.

I don’t forget to put the round inner covers back onto the lights’ housings.

And the fusebox cover back on.

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

Isn’t that blue tip 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

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