    Sorry to hijack this thread, but just wanted to confirm these will fit my 2003 B6 A4 Saloon;

    XENON WHITE 6000K CANBUS ERROR FREE SIDELIGHT LED 194 W5W T10 501 CAPLESS BULB | eBay

    I am looking for an upgrade to the standard bulbs to match the HID lights. Also can anyone advise what bulbs to replace the fog lights with? They look pathetic compared to the headlights. Thanks!

    I have similar from Ultraleds, they're good lights I think. As you say, hard to photograph, but as bright as you ever need.

    Re the foglights, people have done lots of different things, if you ultimately want brightness then HID them (they'll be hopeless in fog!), or even try some of these new headlight fitment LED's floating about. In my experience A4 foglights are just poor anyway, I only ever use mine for the intended purpose, and have some Nightbreakers which are a worthwhile improvement on the standard bulbs, but they're not over impressive. But as I have yellow film on my fogs it doesn't bother me.

    I just want to use the fog lights for their intended purpose, the standard one's are just poor. Which nightbreakers did you get (link) please?

    Fogs are supposed to be poor. (4300k) to cut through the fog better.
    They do look carp though I know.

    Fair enough, I will leave the fogs as they are. Only use them when I need them, which isn't very often to be fair.

    I'd be a bit careful about 501 bulbs, as my 2004 B6 1.8T quattro is listed as 501 when they are in fact R434 -- for which there appear to be no LEDs !!!
    The only work-a-round would be to change over the bulb connectors......
