    White bulbs

    I have a Audi A3 2006.

    It doesnt have xenons just halogen lights.

    i ordered the philips x-treme bulbs on that link a few weeks back, they are very good and much better than standard.

    the free sidelights are good too (i ordered from autobulbs though)

    Yep, the sidelight should be white.
    When I bought mine they came with blue vision sidelights. When off the bulb glass was blue, when turned on they were brilliant white.
    Not sure how good the sidelights are that they offer now though.
    They're free so nothing to lose really.

    Some pics of white non LED DRLs & mirror white sidelights in the first link in my original post (#2) below & also what products / codes they are. The 5W sidelights are the mirrored ones, not the Phillips ones that are blue when switched off...

    It's the working first link, not the second dead link...
