    HID fitting

    Right. I've fitted hid kits to previous cars but i'm not gonna lie the A4 had me beat over the weekend, little things like the main power cables were impossible to get out as the clip was just not moving?! and struggling to find anywhere atall that I could mount the ballasts?!

    Is there anywhere in S.wales that can properly fit (no shonky jobs) my kit? Or any pointers to maybe something im missing... Its that or im selling the kit as i've already wasted a saturday messing with it.

    Im ashamed to admit I didnt even get the sidelights changed over as there is a motor completely blocking the sidelight bulbs?!?!?! seriously? I've never had a problem with other cars but the gay audi had me beat.

    yeah I popped a flat head in there and tried repeatedly with my old man lending and hand and trying too as he's a bit handier than myself ha but no luck,

    Removed the headlight far enough with it attatched though to turn it upside down and hold the ballast in, it was too fat dude

    There easy to remove
    the problem is your not pushing the plug on when releasing the clip sound weird but thats how you do it
    this releases the pressure off the retaining clip then just pull the plug while still holding the release clip off
    wow its easier to do than explain .

    Get a pick under the opening and put it under the retainer slightly lift it and she's out mate
    Paul 20v is right it's a shut to explain easier to do it when you no how
    So that's the other way to do it
