    Advice on headlight bulbs. A3 1.9 TDIe

    Hi guys,

    So having purchased my a3 in November, I'm finally going to spend time this spring and summer making some mods - easy upgrades for now.
    Before I get the windows tinted, please can I ask advice on upgrading my standard headlight bulbs please? I'd prefer a white colour rather than yellow. Heard Philips are good?

    Can I upgrade the Dlrs to a white light or led?

    I struggled during winter with the standard bulbs.

    Cheers guys.

    I'd love to upgrade to bixenon but that's an upgrade further down the line because of cost!

    I was really looking at recommendations on bulb upgrades.

    I'll take a look on eBay. Quite keen for the Dlr replacement so will see what's available. Any other recommendations would be appreciated.
