    Audi A4 2.0T FSI quattro DTM

    Hi I have the Audi A4 2.0T FSI Quattro DTM, not sure what type of lights come with these models does anybody know? - I have also noticed that the side lights are quite dull yellow which I’m thinking of changing for brighter bulbs any suggestions of a brighter type of bulbs would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    James

    There an easy swap. You need a wire harness from Kufatec (about £50 if I remember correctly).

    It does invole taking the bumper off, and then running a wire through the drivers wheel well into the passanger compartment under the steering wheel. Its fairly easy, I've done it twice now and its fairly easy, take about 2 or 3 hours including removing and replacing the bumper.

    Then you need headlamp washers (dtm has) and auto levelling. Jazzy days want about £2200 for this :-/

    Legally. Yes.
    Reality. No.

    There is supposed to be a crackdown on illegal xenon lights, but this has supposedly been coming for a couple of years. Never had a problem with any of my last 3 cars that have all had xenons retrofitted.

    Keep an eye on the classifieds, and on eBay (I managed to pick up my complete set for £200). Just remember you need the ballasts with both the headlights as well, so if you see a really cheap headlight/set it'll be theres no ballast and bulb.

    I'm waiting to see some info on hid's for mot time. They said it'd be illegal next year but nothing as yet. I'm guessing some normal h7 brighter bulbs or hid kit but as for how long you can have it fitted is unknown

    I have a set similar to these; AUDI A4 05-08 B7 CHROME LED DRL DAYLIGHT RUNNING LIGHTS DEVIL EYE HEADLIGHTS | eBay

    fitted to my DTM, with them having the 'projector style' headlamps too I fitted a set of Aftermarket HID lighting kits, they look amazing whilst still looking factory, the quality is excellent, just keep the originals with the car if you change.

    Yes, if you retrofit with washers they will be illegal. To be technically legal you also need auto-levelling sensors. I think you need the washers as incase you get something on the headlight and it creates bad glare to oncoming drivers, and the sensors are for when you are going over bumps I believe.

    I wouldn't be too worried at the moment about you getting pulled over or not MOTd. As long as you don't have them pointing up or sideways, and don't go for the blue/purple lights, you should be fine for now at least.
