ive seen the pics of the RS and to say the least the headlights are way better looking than the SVT's. Has anyone tried to replace the stock headlights with the RS headlights???

I know you can order a pair from europe for about 250 euros which is about 320 dollars...dont really want to blow the money if they dont fit though.

Uhhh search button? And yes plenty of peple have done this, but the RS lights have a chrome cap instead of a turn signal, you're better off getting the ST170 lights unless you plan on reloacting your turn signals or changing the bumper to euro spec

i figured there would be some turn signal relocation or rewiring but would the headlights themselves fit. not a big fan of the ST170 lights though...they look too "APC" crappy for me

How do you get APC crappy from those? I dont see the connection. Only thing I dont like about the ST170s are the indicator lense is orange, I like clear lenses

so the RS headlights don't have turn signals included in them? i thought the chrome cap was just to cover the orange turn sigs...

i believe they have turn sigs, its just not orange, i dont mind the orange in the headlights, its a heck of alot better than the orange in the grill, and the ST170s dont all come w/ the clear sigs

oh i see...so the RS headligts won't be legal here (unless i keep the stock turn sigs...which i def. won't);
i'll have to choose between the stock european headlights and the ST170s

I like the st170 lights personally. do you have to order a special wiring kit for them or does it have a set up for the second set of lights in there?

yes...
you need special cables...well not cables its morea convertion plug...then you need a vw plug so you will avoid cut the sock headlight plug...
