    Smudge,

    Original thread from FAQ section:
    http://audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=73389

    I bought the PIAA 5w mirrorwhite sidelights for over 20. Put them in & they were really, really dim.

    Threw them away and bought cheaper ones from HID conversions with two LEDs either side of a small PCB. They are much, much better bulbs. However, the website says that the company went into administration on 1/6/10, so not sure where you'd get 'em from now...

    Cheers for the info buddy

    I bought some cheap LED DRL bulbs off ebay and they just didn't work

    Just want some nice white-ish DRL's if anything!!

    I think the FAQ thread recommended these for white DRLs:
    http://www.piaa.co.uk/bulbs/bulbshow.asp?ID=mirrorwhite

    No probs fella - for white DRLs, just check in the thread which ones of those on the PIAA link were the right ones. Somewhere in the link someone spells out which Hxxx codes are the right ones & there are night pics of cars with the bulbs fitted as well.
    I've not bothered, as I'd spent enough on PIAA bulbs that were no good & don't use the DRLs.

    Hi

    Will the H367 DRL bulbs fit MY10 plate A3's? (existing light is a strong yellow - standard)

    Cheers

    I can't seem to find those H367 bulbs anywhere in the silver as stated in the other thread.

    Anyone got any info on this?
