PW24W and PWY24W Led bulbs coming soon

We are proud to be the first company in the world that will introduce PW24W and PWY24W led bulbs!

These bulb types are a new type of bulb that appear to be developped in 2009. Recently car manufacturers started to use these filament bulbs in their new models. For example the 2012 BMW 3 series F30 with halogen headlights uses the PW24W bulb for the daytime running lights.

The PWY24W bulb is the orange version of the PW24W bulb. Audi uses it in the front turn signals of most of their latest models (Audi A3, A4, A5, A6). Strangely, for most cars they choose to use the modern Leds at the rear turn signals, but halogen bulbs for the front turn signal.

Untill now, there were no real Led bulbs available to replace the halogen ones. We decided to fill this gap, and invested to have these bulbs developped. Now, after a few months of preparations and development we can show you the prototypes of the bulbs.

We expect to have them available in November. We whill be shipping them worldwide! For questions you can contact us today!

    thanks.

      Yes when they are available we will send you an e-mail!

    Will these be compatible with similar vehicle set ups – namely the 2013 Ford Fusion? I am doing an full HID install soon and would like to also change my PWY24W Halogens with a PNP error free LED. I have not gotten into the headlight assembly yet, however your prototype LED bulb seems considerably longer than the regular PWY24W counterpart. Any concerns with space constraints within the headlight assembly? Also will these LEDs be available in Amber as well? Thanks looking forward to your reply.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Jon, most likely they are going to fit the PWY24W for the Ford Fusion as well. You are right that that the bulb is longer,this is because high power Cree leds are used to match the OEM light output, and these high power leds need a heatsink. It requires testing to see if it really works 🙂
      Good new is that they will be indeed available in amber led to replace the PWY24W bulb.
      If you’re interested in testing send us an e-mail.

    been trying for ages to get them for 2013 audi Q3. please let me know when they are available. people will go mad over them on q3 forum,best of luck.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Paul, thanks for your message. Yes will let you know when they are finished, we’re also looking forward to make them available 🙂 Check out this video on Facebook in 2012 A4 reflector we made this week.

  4. Arthur Goan

    Glad to see that someone is finally making these. I have the PWY24W amber colour in my facelift Audi S5 and had been considering buying another 2 bulbs and making them led. This is much better. I just hope they will be as bright as original because original are very bright and very orange in colour as they should be.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Thanks Arthur. They are going to be as bright as the original bulb, check out a test we did on a new Audi A4 last week with a white test bulb on Facebook. You can see the white bulb is much brighter than the turn signal. The white PW24W bulb gives 570 lumens, where the Led version gives 1050. For the orange bulb both values will be a bit lower but from this we can say for sure that the Led bulb will have at least the same brightness 🙂
      On the new A4 the Led bulb worked perfectly without adding any resistors. Normal blinking speed and no bulb error in the computer. Pretty sure that it will be same on the new S5.

  5. Arthur

    Hi Wouter,
    I wonder , will they be polarity sensitive?

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      No they’re not 🙂 That would have been a problem if they were since this PWY24W fitting is not symmetric.

  6. Bartek

    Hi !
    Please let me know when the product will be available 🙂

    Thank You !

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Bartek,
      Thanks for your message. Which do you need, the PWY24W or PW24W? THe PWY24W is already available for pre-order. Shipping starts next week.

  7. Bartek

    I need PW24W for Golf VII 🙂

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      I’m not sure if the bulb is going to work, because in the Golf VII, the PW24W bulb dims for position light, correct?

  8. Jordy

    Hello, please let me know when the leds are available for my bmw 3 series f30 with halogen daylights.

    Best regards

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Yes we will!

  9. Bartek

    I had not thought about it.Could you find out if it will work?
    Greetings !

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Unfortunately the experience I have with similar set ups is that it’s not going to work in this case. Even when dimmed the bulb will give full brightness. I’ll see if maybe we can make some adjustments to the electronics to make it work.

  10. Bartek

    Are the bulbs are available or not? I think I will venture 🙂

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      We have one pair in white, you want to try if it works? 🙂 I doubt it but if not, you can return it.

  11. Bartek

    How can I order it and how much cost ?

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Will contact you by e-mail.

  12. Stephen

    How is the development going? Are the PW24W bulbs ready to be tested? I got a ’13 BMW 328i waiting 🙂

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      PWY24W already released with success, but the PW24W needs some more time unfortunately! Will send you an e-mail when finished 🙂

  13. Lee

    Good afternoon I wonder if you can help me with my bmw 3 series head lights they are really dim and yellow, I would like bright white ones but I want to change side lights,day time driving light, main beam, high beam and fogs so they all look the same. Can you please advise ?
    Lee

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Lee, it would be best if you can contact us by e-mail for these questions!

  14. Andoni

    Hola,
    También estaria interesado en cambiar las PW24W de un golf VII por unas con luz blanca o led.
    ¿como las puedo pedir y no se si se han probado y funcionan?

    Gracias

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Andoni, the PW24W has not been tested on Golf VII yet, this is also a challenge since this headlight dims the bulb for position light, we have to figure out a way to make that work with Led also.

  15. Losty

    My 2013 Kia cee’d needs PY21W indicator bulbs. Will you be making these in LEDs? Or will PWY24W fit/work? 🙂

    Thanks in advance

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      We have them in stock in PY21W!

  16. Allen Shultz

    I would love to know when these are available for the 2013 Ford Fusion. Thank you.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Allen we have the PWY24W already on our website ready to order! 🙂

  17. Peter Sloan

  27. herby

    Ich benötige 2 LED Leuchten PW24W für den Golf VII, das gelbe Licht ist unzumutbar, hinten Voll-LED Rückleuchten, vorne Xenon und bescheidene Tagfahrlichter in gelb, VW hat nicht mehr alle Tassen im Schrank zu Xenon keine weißen LEDs zu verbauen.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Herby,

      Unfortunately the PW24W LEDs aren’t strong enough for the DRLs.
      Only for turning signals.

  28. Paul Barker

    Hi, I require the PW24W (LED DRL) for my 2014 BMW F30. Is it available please? Regards Paul

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Paul,

      Unfortunately the PW24W LEDs aren’t strong enough for the DRLs.
      Only for turning signals.

  29. Prashanth

    Hi, are the PW24W LED bulbs available for the BMW F30 yet? I have the halogen lamps and would like to replace them. Are they error free? Please let me know. Thanks!

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Prashanth,

      Those LEDs aren’t strong enough for the DRL, because of the heat they produce.
      Only for the turning signals available.

  30. Robert Matthijssen

    No pw24w yet?

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Robert,

      We do have a few pairs in stock of the PW24W (50W White).

  31. Tomek

    Hi, I have Golf 7 Highline with Xenon-basic, without LEDdayligth and I want to install LED Indicator and LED Daylight, Have you proposition for me?
    Best regards, Tomek

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Tomek,

      What kind of fitting does the VW VII has for the turning signal?
      For DRL the LED’s aren’t strong enough.

  32. Oschi

    Yes, pls email me when PW24Ws are available! Thanks. Golf 7

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Steffen,

      Thanks for your message. But unfortunately it isn’t possible to send everyone an e-mail when products are in stock.
      When the products are availible we’ll post it on Facebook and add them in the webshop of course.

  33. Tomek

    I have allready installed indicator cree led bulbs for golf 7 with xenon basic, H21W, its work ok, without any problems with canbuserror-message. Now I need PW24W led for daylights, Iv bought 48mm but its so long, max 44mm have to be.

  34. Tomek

    aha, it should be exacly H21W BAY9S type.

  35. Tomek

    Hi Herby, Hi Wouter, its not exacly true Wouter, I dont now if I can so writen on this site, but you need to see youtube films with PW24W led samsung.
    Herby, ich habe zwei Tagen voher einen PW24W led in mein Golf 7 eingebaut und ist Fantastisch, aber war zu lang (max. 44mm), Grusse/Best Regards

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      You are right, yes! But our bulb is not shorter, sorry!

  36. Tomek

    Are You producer or reseller? I’m working for VW-Seller in Poland and 2/3 Golfs 7 have xenon basic and 1/2 of this peoples, when its sold, need/wont to buy PW24W LED. If You make yours PW24W 4-5mm shorter and 11,8 width You have clients for Audis, BMW F30 becouse for this cars its not important lenth 48 or 44 mm (no small mirror inside), but with 44mm You can sell for most popular car in Europe! And with H21W bay9s-indicator You have clients for GTI/GTD to (crazy tuning guys!) and I think that this typ of bulbs will be most popular in near future. Who will be first on markt will win! Technickly, its so different to make this PW24W shorter?

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      We have these bulbs manufactured by our own design and specs. So yes we could look into this. Are you talking about the total length of the bulb including the base? Thanks for the info!

  37. Tomek

    Hi Wouter, yes, with base, but can be schorter to. For ex. 40mm and 11mm width.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      What’s the maximum diameter for these bulbs?
      High power Leds need a proper heatsink so we have to use all space that’s available.

  38. Tomek

    Hi, I have found this description:
    „10 High Power SAMSUNG SMD LED Light Lamp bulb
    6500K xenon white color temp. light
    Type of lights: Polar and Error Free PW24W LED bulbs
    Bulb size: ~44mm (~1.73 inches) total length from end to end; ~11.8mm (~0.46 inches) in width
    Detail Spec & Features:
    Each LED light bulb equips 10 SAMSUNG High Power SMD LED chips with magnified projector lens built in full Aluminum housing (much brighter than others low quality bulbs, ~10W, ~650 Lumens)“ and I now from youtubeman that’s works in Golf 7.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Okay but that’s just the measurements from another bulb. That doesn’t mean that’s the maximum diameter that can fit in the Golf 7 headlight 🙂

  39. Tomek

    44mm length is maximum (my was 48mm and was 2-3mm to large – I made the measurement, but its difficult to do this) and 12mm max. width. beacose of width of smallmirror inside.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      I’ve measured our bulb, that’s a lot wider and longer. A bulb with such small dimensions is going to have problems to dissolve heat because the heatsink would be very small.

  40. Robert Matthijssen

    Hi Wouter,

    I need pw24w leds (white) for my 2012 BMW f30 drl lights. Do you have these in stock? Can you please inform me about price?

    Thankx !!

  41. Robert Matthijssen

    and offcoures canbus proof 🙂

    Like to here from you

  42. Muharrem

    Hello. I need pw24w for golf7 . I bought led bulbs from china but it is not strong enough for DRL.6 month later has been died. Please inform me when you have strong bulbs.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Hi Muharrem,
      Thanks for the message. We don’t have the PWY24W for DRL yet, unfortunately.
      They aren’t strong enough yet. But we are working on some new designs.

  43. Enda

    Do you have the psx26w error free led for the 2013 audi a4 halogen drl/ sidelight.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      Yes we can get that for your. Does it dim for sidelight function? If it does, a Led version of the bulb is not going to work.

  44. Darrell

    Hi, any news on the PW24W DRL’s? I’m ive tried 2 sets of expensive ‚error free‘ bulbs in my 2014 Skoda Yeti but both have thrown up the bulb out warning.

    I’m hoping you have managed to develop some, my car is a well known project ‚most powerful 1.6tdi in Europe‘ so would get you some great publicity if they worked.

    1. Retrofitlab - Wouter

      hi Darrel, we have a newer version available yes. Please contact us by e-mail, let us know which bulb you’ve tested so far.

      1. Darrell Tunningley

        Hi,

        Ive just emailed, look forward to hearing back from you soon,

        Darrell

        1. Vitaly

          Hi!

          Have you found a LED lamp without an error?
