Update...

You may have heard of these before, but for those of you who haven’t, here we go:

Upgraded headlight looms solve the problem of having lights like “candles in jars”, which as you will probably know it is a very common problem with mk2 Golf’s.

This loom takes power direct to your headlights and gives it the added voltage that is lost through your old degraded wiring. It has an added safety factor that other looms do not have, I use 2 relay for the dipped beam and 1 for the full beam, this means if one relay goes you are not without headlights.

I also provide protection for the relays and fuses from the elements as well. This comes in the form of a quality extruded aluminum enclosure.
This enclosure is rated IP66 (Totally protected against dust and Protected against temporary flooding of water, e.g. for use on ship decks)

Comes with self adhesive straps for mounting on your battery.

No cutting of your original loom is necessary, which means it’s quick and simple to fit - plug and play. This also means that you can return your headlights to the original OEM state if you wish.

This loom is compatible with all mk2’s that have 4 headlights and has the added bonus of increasing your light projection on dipped and full beam.

Fitting instructions are included

Price is £100 + delivery

Please PM me for more info or to order.
Demonstrations available at late night meets ect

I received mine today...

The quality of Sam's work & the components used is superb. The loom is simple to fit & requires no cutting or messing around with your existing wiring. The use of OEM style connectors is a masterstroke - well done Sam on producing a great bit of kit. :clap:

The difference this upgrade makes to the amount of light output really does have to be seen to be believed.

If you have a mk2 golf, this modification is an absolute must. :thumbup:

Thanks,
Good question....

I have designed the loom so the relays sit nicely behind your battery which will give it protection from the majority of weather but this wont prevent it completly. I also supply a sealed bag to place the relay block inside which will completly seal the relays from any other moisture ect.


On another subject, I am also in the process of designing a corrado specific loom too :thumbup:

what awesome lookin bit of kit

any chance of a few pic of it installed Brink?

by looking at it, to fit a mk1 the inner spot connections will need to be changed to ones like a mk1 indicator connection (fancy staggered block with two spade connections in) IIRC, but the rest looks good to go!

you could do a mk1 'single light' upgrade with only the main lights and two less relays?

Yeah, sure Ash... I've trial fitted it, but won't be installing it permanently until the car gets back from the bodyshop.
The neatest route for the loom is tucked up underneath the slam panel & i'm replacing it during the paintwork.

I'd be happy to take a picture once it's in, but it's so neat you won't really be able to see much! :)

I will take a few snaps of mine in the car over the weekend for you.

Yeh i need to look at these connectors for the mk1, hopefully checking out peoples cars at the weekend so i can be sure the design will fit e.g. mk1, corrado and possibly mk3 golf and polo :)

Definatly could make a single light upgrade for people with just the main headlights for either the mk1/mk2 golf.
