      Possible, and also since these are sold in far smaller volumes.

      Has anyone upgraded the headlamps on the New Polo?

      Also will the stock connector be able to handle 80watts?

      I upgraded my headlights today with a wiring loom using 4 relays and 4 fuses. I must have doubled the amount of light throw. The lights are a bright white and lights up the road very well. I used the Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited 55/60. Using the 90/100 bulbs are just a waste of money.
      The wiring loom.

      My stock bulb was 55/60W H4,later done an upgrade with 90/100W with relay wiring.Now I want to shift back to 55/60W bulb. So can I retain the same relay wiring of 100/90W and just replace the bulbs to 55/60W,does this creates any problem ?

      Keep the relay kit as it is and replace only the bulbs. You will see your lights are brighter than with the stock wiring.

      Doesn't it blow the bulb ? so the power consumed by the bulb remains 55/60W or exceeds the rating ?
      Actually I was thinking that the bulb will consume same amount of power 55/60W.

      The bulbs wont last as long and even shorter if you use the Osram Nightbreaker or the Philips Extremevision. Good lights cant be measured in money. I will have to change my bulbs about twice a year now after the upgrade because daylight driving lights are compulsory.

      It would, but again depending on the bulb. My XV lost its high beam after a week on 90/100W relay wiring.

      If am not wrong the relay wiring can be just disconnected from the connectors and you can have the stock wiring for your 55/60W bulbs.

      IMO it wouldn't be worth it. The stock reflectors are not designed even for HID bulbs how well do you think it will reflect LED lights. LED lights need precise focusing to be able to channel it. If you see LED lights in Audi and BMW those are really small modules. On stock reflector there will be just too much glare and light will be scattered everywhere and not much on the road. Also the temp of the LED light would matter. Mostly LED bulbs would have temp around 6000K.

      However, I haven't tried it. If you have indeed made up your mind, please do share your findings
