    Help with retro fit HID's on aftermarket headlights A4 DTM?

    Im sure its been covered before, but Ive just bought a Audi A4 DTM, it has had the aftermarket headlights fitted with the R8 sidelights incorporated into them and 'projector headlights'.

    Bought from H7 Xenon HID Conversion Kit


    Ive then bought a HID kit, with the canbus, fitted them and I start the car im getting a bulb with a cross on my DIS saying 'headlight dipped' left and right, then when I turn on the lights on, the message goes away!

    Any ideas to stop this or will the kit be at fault,any help much appreciated,cheers

    I'm about to do the same on my car.
    If the HID is not CANBUS friendly, you'll need to get some HID Error Eliminators.
