    A6 headlight upgrade



    I've been replacing my interior lights recently with leds.....beautiful cool bright white light with a slight bluish tinge ( see my interior light led thread )
    As part of this I wanted to upgrade the headlights, foglights etc too. I seriously thought about an HID kit but as my car doesn't have projector headlamps I decided against it ( at present anyway )
    I went for Sportzblue by Ring automotive and bought from Autobulbs direct.
    I upgraded the dipped beams to 80w with H7, the main beam to 80w with H1 and the foglights to 80w with H7 also. At the same time I upgraded the 501 sidelights with the bluish tinge for the HID look.
    Please see pics below.........
    Pic 1 and 2 of the bulbs used
    Pic 3 -dipped 80w main 80w + sides from the front
    pic 4 - dipped 80w main 80w + sides from the side
    Pic 5 - dipped beam 80w + sidelights

    A seriously marked improvement as I knew they would be. I compared them to my wifes Passat yellow / dull tired lookin standard bulbs. I did this upgrade beofre on my Jag X type so I knew it'd work well
    well chuffed!
