    S3 xenon upgrade

    Just wordering if any of you guys have done any upgrades to your standard S3 xenons? If there is any upgrades you can do.

    I don't find them very bright, I am comparing them to my father in laws BMW 330 xenons which are outstanding.

    I think he wants to uprate the standard Xenons on his car dicky, as he has an S3, i'd be intersted to know if you could get uprated Xenon bulbs aswell, but they are usually over 100 for each bulb!

    Re: S3 xenon upgrade

    I think the standard S3 bulbs are rated at 4-4.5K, where the latest BMW and top end Mercs have 5-6K bulbs which are brighter and the higher the wattage, the more intense and blue light is emmitted. I have an 8K kit fitted onto my Passat, which really lights up the road, but they also look very blue, not had any problems with the local cop cars(yet!) - touchwood.
