    I've put aftermarket bulbs in.....

    You don't need an entire kit as the ballasts are already included with the xenon projector headlights

    I've been offered the lamps without the ballasts, how long you had them, in any issues? and have you used relays?

    Yes you are meant to have the above, if your car needs an mot it will fail.

    They do not blow any motors , that is the LED ones , but they will need coding to work.

    I went down this whole route and then opted for good quality bulbs instead.
    I have sold the car so kept the bulbs ,

    The side light bulbs are bang on Xenon look , a bit of a pig to fit , but once you get one in its quite strait forward. They sell out as soon as they get any in stock, i have a boxed pair

    No errors , all plug and play , no messing around.


    70 the lot if anyone wants them,

    Not so Patrick,

    I had my MOT done by Audi during their "free MOT" period with my xenons, and it passed fine with no levellers or washer jets

    It's not an MOT fail yet, but probably will be soon.
