While it wasn’t an overwhelming sales success and a large percentage of the problem seemed to be the somewhat polarizing looks, I always preferred the look of the B3 Passat to the Quantum it replaced and the facelifted B4 that succeeded it. I thought the smooth, grill-less look was neat and clean; I liked the GTi-spec 2.0 16V motor, and the original chin spoiler reminded me of the first GTi’s lip. There aren’t many options for modifying these cars though, but one of the popular options – albeit rare – was to install the Hella DE projector light conversion. They’re hard to come by, but there’s a set on Ebay today:

Volkswagen Passat Hella DE Conversion headlights
These are special lights with E code lights. The left side outer trim is cracked in corner. The lens are all good and very clear and clean. Comes with an older HID Xenon conversion.
These are rare.
I can ship these overseas.
There’s a minor crack on the driver’s light, which is unfortunate but isn’t hugely noticeable. I’m not really a fan of DIY Xenon conversions, so I’d hope if I were purchasing these that I could return them to halogens without too much fuss. The price is high considering these factors, but these are indeed pretty rare lights. If you’re lucky enough to still be pushing a B3 around – especially if it’s in good shape – these could be a really neat addition.
