    The dipped beam lenses are the same for Halogen or Xenon bulbs so no problem with projecting the correct light pattern.

    Do a search - you will find many references to HID conversions.
    Be aware of "switch-on" interference with front crash sensors which can randomly bring up ABS/Brake warnings on DIS, some HID kits can also trigger bulb warning also.

    no problems with HIDs for your a4, ive had mine fitted for a month or so now and its great.

    i see you live in london area, i would recommend a place called autolights, i got mine done there and paid 110 inc cancellers and fitted and 2 years warranty.

    if you interested, let me know and i give you his number.

    heres a link to pics of mine:

    what are these cancelers you speak of? i Fitted HIDs to my A3 and have no warning lights. Will this deffo not work with the A4 then? Where do i install these and where are they from? i done a hid search and it came up with not much at all.

    Thanks.

    I think some kits require cancellers, but not all.
    Mine hasn't got them, but hasn't thrown anything up on the dash (yet).

    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.
