If you get it fitted outside of dealership, they will not honour the warranty in case of issues,
Actually, I got them removed and put a pair of Philips xtreme vision+130, these are much better than stock bulbs, but, have not driven on highway after the change,

I feel, 100/90w bulbs give the best result on highways, but, will void warranty. I had these in my old car and sorely miss the illumination offered by these bulbs.
I will wait for the warranty period to expire, and then opt for this,, I had purchased extended warranty and have a long wait ahead to change

Anything over stock wattage rating will void warranty. If you are going for 100/90w, You would have to fit in the relay kit, though there is no cutting of wires involved.

Hello Hemanth,

I wanted to upgrade the headlight performance on my 2016 TDI LE. The car has the factory fitted projectors, I wanted to upgrade to a Blue-White set up. From your update, if I manage to get the Skoda guys to swap the set up the warranty will not stand void?

Hi All,

I am facing a very peculiar problem with my Rapid. The suspension behavior is not consistent. On some days the suspension feels very stiff and on some days the suspension feels very soft. I prefer the suspension to be stiff but this inconsistent behavior is not to my liking. I have checked the air pressure whenever the the suspension felt smooth but there was no reduction in the air pressure.

The suspension firms up whenever I drive the car a little aggressively. But it looses its stiffness in few days.

Could you all help me to troubleshoot this issue ?
