    Asking this one in here as it's a techy question, move it if you need to pls.

    Right i have a 2004 1.6 fsi se (ep1) split grill model a3.. which hasnt got a little screen near the speedo in the middle, its just got lights i.e engine light, oil light, handbrake light etcetc...

    now i want to fit HIDS but ive heard of them causing errors? OBD errors i think? and also blowing wiper motors..

    will my a3 suffer from either of these, i thought to get errors you had to have a screen to read the errors also im baffled on the wiper motor bit...

    and if so what do i do to prevent this

    thanks

    If you install aftermarket HIDs, the general concensus (sp) is that the rear wiper motor blows.

    Plus, with HIDs in the standard lights, the light pattern will be ****, you will blind people and it will just look terrible.

    Best bet is to purchase some xenons either from Audi if you have pockets as deep as the Grand Canyon, or be on the lookout for some on ebay.

    I just sold mine on there for a measily 300 as i needed some monies.

    With these xenons in place, you can then uprate the bulbs like i did to get a nice white/blue light instead of the OK white/yellow light in the standard xenons
    Currently driving a 55 plate Ford Mondeo ST. But as Arnie once said...


    I'll be back!!!
