    CLEAR CORNERS...... FINALLY PLUCKED UP THE COURAGE TO DO IT!!

    Hi all!!

    After seeing numerous amounts of people dismantling the front end and stripping down the headlights to remove the amber lense..... i finally talked myself into doing it. my main worrie was if i cracked a lense or didnt heat it up enough to re-seal, but to be honest its quite a user friendly job and the result? well im more than happy. looks so much newer!! so heres the pics. if you want the link to the step by step instructions that solaris kindly sent to me, then plz just post on here and ill send it straight over. any questions feel free to ask

    Any suggestions for the drl's? coz i leave them off purposely coz they look very yellow in comparison to the xenons. any nice white bulb suggestions??

    Very brave man

    Results look great so definately worth the effort. I wanted to do this but never plucked up the courage and instead bought some black DRL aftermarket lights.

    Hi..There are plenty of led sidelights for your car on ebay. Just make sure you buy the ones with the correct resistors..

    Hi Craig I,m afraid I don,t know much about leds it,s a bit of a minefield!! All i know is that you have to pick ones that are "canbus" friendly..I think the sidelights for the a4 is 501 type. Hope this helps you out

    How come my headlights are already clear? is it because they are OE bi-xenons?

    You can fit any BA15s (1156) led bulb in there to loose the yellow look, but regardless of what the seller says you're pretty much always gonna need to install a load resistor to fool the canbus...

    I'd recommend the CREE LEDs for a crisp white output.

    ETKA gives the VIN when the change from tango to clear corner was made, which approximates to cars built from October/November 2006 - but build date isn't the same thing as date of first registration...

    I found out these are recommended and don't cause any fault lights or need a resistor.

    like petroldave says.. when the cars are manufactured and when they are registered, are two completely differnt things

    im like you, finding the time to do this is a pain.... im trying to save up all the "bumper off" jobs to do all at the same time
