    i wanted to do this but im sure i read on one post that as the units draw less power the on board computer registers a fault and therefore will constantly give a warning, not sure how true but just thought id let you know.

    Yeah but the light output is shocking, you might as well get used to the lights on a Mk2 golf, as they are about that good. Pointless IMHO.

    Consider that if you have projectors, light output shows as if bulb had more K.
    Mine are 5000k, supposedly white, but they look sky blue due to projectors...

    Well this company accept paypal, so I was going to mail them depending on interest if we pay them with a ref code will they do the group discount, that way they can post them out us and I don't have to worry about collecting money either

    I will get cracking with it tomorrow or Monday

    Contact Paypal and tell them you have not recieved your goods, they will start off a dispute and if he does not answer within 30 days you'll get your money back.

    Hi there
    Looking at your MD01 kit
    I'm a member on a Audi Forum www.audi-sport.net and we are looking for a poss group buy on this product.

    You advertise a discount when buy more kits but is this in one transaction?

    My thought was if we could agree a group by poss 10 - 15 kits we could pay via paypal individually with a ref number or word, do you think this is poss

    I will get a full list of what is wanted and present it too you


    Thank you

    Simon Levy
    Just mailed them so we shall see what they say!

    Feel bad for you, was going to say at the time that the only way I was going to part with my cash was if a more senior member got involved but didnt want to be out of order

    Ok the company mailed me back today
    They can only do a discount if all the kit are sent to 1 address

    So I was thinking it maybe easier if everyone ordered there own?? just a thought or the other way is if people live near each other

    If all the kits get sent to me and we save 5 a kit say it is going to cost more then we save to resend them on

    If anyone lives in my area I don't mind if you want to collect them from my work or home but I can't see much more savings, they won't discount further then it says on the site

    Sorry....
    I will be ordering 5 sets as that is who wants them so far living local to me on Monday

    So let me know guys

    Check your own bulbs for the fitment, for all the two minutes it'll take you instead of relying on somebody else - if its 1 prong its an H1, iirc the full beams on pre facelift are H7 and main beams H1, which is the same as the facelift lights i have.

    No lol you can put them to whatever bulb you like, im just saying go to your car and check what your headlamp is, then order the correct kit.

    i.e H1 / H7
