    more on light bulb modification

    Hi,

    Thanks for all your helps. Let me describe more about my A3.

    It is a 2006 A3 DSG automatic w/ a standard lighting.

    I think i just want to get a much brighter light bulb (I think my is 4000 w and i would like it to be 6000w at least) than the one that i have right now.

    So where can I find light bulb online that fit my A3?(can not find any site that specified the bulb for A3) Do I need to instal xenon for it to be brighter? or just a regular halogen light bulb w/ greater Waltage will do?

    How about fog light?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    tsait

    I have PIAA bulbs in mine and they are pretty good, I think they are somewhere near 6000K

    I also have an HID kit I am trying to sell ...............Brand new unopened..

    Try www.HIDS4U.CO.UK
    I would think Ian would ship to the US.
    These are aftermarket Xenon kits, you donr need to change your headlamps. Fitting is supposed to take about half an hour ....

    I am currently using PIAA Xtreme White bulbs on the dipped beam. They are better than the osrams and Phillips but not enough to justify the 60-70 price tag (though I got mine at a reduced cost)

    Re: more on light bulb modification

    I already had the Xenon installed from new. But the side lights look rubbish cos there not white like the main beam. Are there any bulds I can get to replace the side lights that are whiter??

    Philips Blue Vision should do the trick. I decided to put them in after I saw the difference the PIAA bulbs made with the standard side lights.

    Any idea what size sidelights you need for a 2005 (05)? There are 3 sizes... T4W, W5W or H6W (Sold Here) .

    Go these as well and they work well with the Xenon lighting.
