Light bulbs?

Post by silverhairs »

Seeing that I'm not having LED lights, when I get my Polo I wish to up grade my bulbs to 120%/130%. does anybody know what type of bulbs are fitted as normal straight out of the factory. Are they H4 or H7?

if you have the indicator in the middle, close to the grill, you have H4. If you have it more on to bottom, it's H7.
But keep in mind, the lighting pattern can be really bad with LED bulbs in reflector headlights.

Hi, do you have the polo aw model? If so the halogen headlights take H7 bulbs, replaced mine with an HID kit 6000k. Bottom fogs are H8 which i replaced with C9 Led bulbs (Pnp). Image
