    High output halogens

    Anyone tried the "high" output halogen replacement bulbs from PIAA or Sylvania. I should have purchased the xenon option for my C.

    They're bright .. couple of my friends have them
    on their cars

    Re: High output halogens

    they WILL melt your headlight casing on your porsche, go with a xenon retrofit, its better anyway.

    Re: High output halogens

    Do you know of anyone who has done a successful xenon retrofit on the Cayenne? I know Toby Pennycuff was working on it for months. Last I heard, he was still working on it. Maybe this is something the dealer would do, for a price, I don't know. From what I can tell, the retrofit is very involved.

    I have had high output halogens in mine from new, still awaiting meltdown

    I can see that the pending meltdown really has you on edge!

    What kind did you put in yours Mick?

    Oh, and BTW, have you heard anything more of Toby's xenons?

    Re: High output halogens

    its been a while I will check and advise. I have not heard if Toby ever got them working, dont think he did.

    Don't know for sure. There is a different wiring harness and control module and something running up to the dash, I don't recall what it was. The xenon's are self leveling which seems to be the part that creates difficulties.

    I only know about someone who tried to do it themselves, and they had problems. It may be something the dealer could do for a price. You would think they could. I haven't actually heard of anyone approaching a dealer with this question though.

    Re: High output halogens

    Checked with PIAA - got their tech peoplle to pledge that the bulbs wouldnt melt the plastic headlight covers (in writing). Seems they run at same temp. as regular bulbs with different gases.
