    Take 2 mins to fit, I don't know what bulbs the A4 uses but it is more than likely going to be the 501's

    I've gone through 2 sets of the budget LED sidelights so far, they blow so easily, so I'm back to the standard ones for now.... the Piaa ones are to go for then right?

    Yeah i ve had mine months not far off a year, there the cheap ones to & not a problem. If your not going for piaa try to find ones with a voltage regulator or resistor. Check www.ultraleds.co.uk i bought number plate LED bulbs for mine with voltage regulators & again no problems but lesser ones just kept blowing

    Yeah great find Buster!

    A great look, looks good with sliver for sure!

    How easy are they to fit? Just looked under the bonnet and there is hardly any room to no room.

    I hate to follow the crowd, but just ordered some too

    Thanks

    Why do they look so good on your car? lol, i fitted the exact same sidelight bulbs last week and they look much bluer, but still better than standard.

    The N/S ones are a bugger to fit on my 1.8TS as the battery is right in the way to get to the light unit, i had to loosen the clamp holding the battery in place so i could fit my large hands into the compartment to get the old bulb out, i found it helped to twist the bulb at least 90 degrees to get the bulb to come out (just pull them), however i don't strictly know if that is the correct technique for removing them.

    So which PIAA ones are needed to get the desired effect? Is there a size to follow? TIA

    You need the W5W for the sidelights otherwise known as wedge fitment. The high beams are H7. Xtreme Force are the ones to go for on these.

    guys, ive just changed my headlight, mainbeam and sidelight bulbs for xenon/blue. but my fogs are still yellow, does anyone know what the bulb model number is for these so i can change the fog bulbs aswell?

    by the way, driver side changing of the bulbs is a piece of piss, but ill advise to move the battery for passenger side, coz its a feckin nightmare.

    My LED sidelights came today from ebay although he sent round top ones and not flat top as advertised...now the light emitted from them is a narrow beam and dosen't catch any of the reflector! So don't look as good as Buster's

    flip the bulbs through 180° and try again. LED's have to be in the correct direction to work.
