    HID kit Upgrade: Installed on my 10' A3.

    Installed my HID 6000k (H11) on the fog lights. Enjoy the pics:








    Installation was pretty straightforward. I went with this kit. No code cancellers (which I thought I should get initially) and somehow it didn't went up on the dash which is a plus I supposed. Took about 10-15 minutes for each side.

    If anyone's wondering, the 6000k bulbs doesn't quite match the DRLs as they give more white/blue-hint lighting as opposed to white/purplish colour on the DRL. Can't wait for these fogs to match my 6000k D3S bulbs. Got them ordered already. :thumbup:

    Cheers mate. Yeap, just pull it right off. It's a PITA to put it back on though.

    Maybe, lol. I don't see a point for foglights in the first place ever since it was invented anyway. Do you? :D

    Well you can try the 25ohm 10w load resistors and see if that helps for you. I'm currently running 150ohms on each LEDs, works a treat.

    I already have the xenons and afaik the stockies are 4300k D3S. Too yellow-ish for my liking!
