    Hi.

    I have a 2004 A3 which I want to change to Xenon headlight bulbs. What fitment do i need to order? H4 or H7?

    Obviously im not expecting HID performance but would like to hear of anyone who has tried these bulb types.

    Yes - H7 for both Dip & Main Beam. I've just fitted Philips Extreme +80% which get best marks in the AutoExpress test and I think they're the best you can get at the moment for brightness.

    I've tried Philips Xenon-Plus, Osram Silverstars and GE +60s and the new Philips Extreme are better than any of these.....

    just a quick update.

    Went and ordered the bulbs you said about http://www.autowirez.co.uk/h7-499-co...p-1-pr-95.html

    Just arrived this morning and have tried them out this evening. I have to say im quite impressed for how cheap they were . Just hope they last long enough too.
