    Replacement Xenon Bulbs

    Hello.

    Can anyone help me please? I need a replacement Xenon bulb for my 07 A3, where is the best place to get one from and can you get brighter ones than standard ones?

    Thanks in advance

    The brightness of Xenons are measured in colour temperature (Kelvin). Generally; the higher the number, the bluer the light. Hence why you see some cars with bluey / purple xenons.

    Audis come fitted with 4300kv as standard.

    To give you an idea of the different colour temperatures, this might be of some use as a rough guide...



    The higher up the scale you go though, the less distance the light projects (kind of defeating the purpose of your headlights?). So a 12000K won't project as far as 4300k. IMO, I wouldn't go higher than 6000k, 8000k at a push.

    Thanks for the information, I would probably go for the 6000k bulbs but what fitment are they? Are they D1's ?

    Not sure about the fitment mate, not had to change mine so not looked into it.

    Done a search in the forums and it's not come up with much, but it has come up with this...

    Might be worth following this to get to your bulbs and see what fitment they say on them? You'll notice in the above thread it says "D1S 35W..." on the label on the back of the bulb. Best bet would be to see what yours say as it's an expensive gamble if you guess and order the wrong ones
