Now on sale below dealer cost, these are direct bolt-on replacements for your stock 7" sealed-beam bulbs; just pop them in and you're ready to go. They're the highest rated of the H4 headlights, widely praised on the Samba and the VW Vanagon and Type 2 mailing lists. You can find a very detailed independent review here.
Bulbs: Bosch doesn't include bulbs, but we've obtained a half price deal on those as well. Click here to order quality German H4 60/55w bulbs for just $3.95 each. These bulbs work with the stock wiring and plug; no modifications required. (If you have a pre-'67 6-volt Bug or Bus, order these 6 volt versions instead.)
Optional High-Output Bulbs: We also offer higher-output 55/100 watt and 90/100 watt bulbs, although they may require the use of relays due to their higher current draw.
'80-85 Vanagon Owners: These headlights are also available as part of our VisionKit Special, - the ultimate headlight upgrade for your Vanagon, which doubles your headlight performance. It includes these headlights, relays, wiring, and German high-output 90/100 bulbs, all for under $100 complete.
'86-91 Vanagon Owners: These headlights can be used on your year if purchased as part of our South African Grill Kit. Another, less expensive alternative is our VisionKit Headlight Upgrade.
Disclaimer: Although H4 headlights are commonplace on cars and trucks in Europe and Canada, when sold in the U.S. they must be designated as "for motorcycle or offroad use only" because the U.S. DOT does not recognize H4's for car use. Unlike most H4's, these Bosch's are DOT approved and labeled, but the approval mark applies to motorcycles. Compliance with local laws is the buyer's responsibility.
