I have been asked how I got those magnificent 🙂 LED headlights and angel eyes. Here’s how and how you can also get a pair yourself! They look great and update the car’s look like those MK2s.
A simple Google search will allow you to figure out how to DIY. I considered trying myself but after a few days of reading on the subject, I got discouraged. Yes the parts are easy to find, such as clear corners, LED strips (white and orange), angeleyes, etc. But the assembly is not that easy! First, you need to take your headlights away from your car and disassemble them completely. Then, you need to take out the old blinkers and configure the LEDs to switch to amber when the blinkers are turned on, back to white after, etc. That’s done with extra material you can’t find on the web. You need to go to a local shop and find the electronics you need. You also need to add the angel eyes and wire them properly. Not for me, I decided…
Instead, I found it easier to buy a complete kit that I only have to install myself. Not the internals, the complete LED DRLs! I found a supplier in UK and we both agreed that I would order a pair and also become his reseller in North America.
So, if you are looking for a pair of LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL), with or without angel eyes, go to this page.
Below are pictures of my headlights being modified. The mods are: Paint from silver to black, smoke corners, LED blinkers, European style headlights without the orange patch on the side, angel eyes (light strip around the high beams) and finally, yellow high beams. Talk about being different! Whenever I drive on highways, left lane, coming rapidly onto cars, my headlights make the difference: people see me coming from far away, just wondering what kind of car is behind them. So they dive into the middle lane, without even me having to do anything! Incredible how headlights change the way other drivers behave. What I love most, is when I need to “flash” them, using my yellow high beams. I get an instant “Oh my god, let’s change lanes” reaction. Since yellow high beams are rare in North America, this is a sure way to get the attention of upcoming traffic. Anyhow, as you can see, I love my headlights and I enjoy them every day. 🙂
Now, the pics, from assembly to final look, on the race track.

Hi Andre, does the kit come with the new headlight interior, or does that cost extra if you want to do the side marker delete as well? Also, now that you’ve replaced the turn indicator with the LED light strip – what do you use for a front turn signal?
Thanks – Jay (in Winnipeg)
oh, sorry – just looked at the post a little more closely and I see you have the blinkers incorporated into the design…..
The LED strip is white and on at all times. (it kind of replaces the fog lamps)
When you activate the turn signal, the strip switches to amber and blinks.
Isn’t that cool? 🙂
i need to buy this drl …..
wow you have done a cracking job can you supply the kit to the UK I have the MK1 RHD S-LINE bought it about 4 months ago it’s my pride and joy
been looking to put DRL’s on but most of them look naff. and becomes law in UK & EUROPE later this year on all new cars.better to be seen I think.
I have just upgraded my exhaust on my car to REMUS looks the bizz.
so any info on your kit would be great

Yes, the DRLs can be provided in European specs.
You can have them in hand in about 3 weeks time. :))
i want buy this led headlamp for my TT, i want to know how much it cost and how can i buy or plz give me any contact number
Did you do the amber side marker delete yourself or did you source new headlight internals? If so, where’d you find ’em…if not, how’d the delete process work? Also, are you aware of any source for replacement mk1 TT headlight lenses? Took mine to the shop the other day for a professional restoration and the left one turned out great, but the right one has some kind of coating on it that made it impossible for the shop to get a comparable result. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers! Rob
I deleted them myself. You simply need to split-open the headlights and remove them, then paint so they look brand new. Very simple. See: https://audittrs.wordpress.com/2013/04/21/split-open-audi-tt-mk1-front-headlights/
The lenses are not manufactured anymore. I tried to source them, with no luck. So you need to buy a headlight from the scrap yard and either replace yours completely or just change your lens with the newer one.
Thanks for the info Andre! -Rob
