    cheers guys its a good job i had the bra on today as on the way back from bridlington following and old vauxhall omega accelerating up the slip road he chucked what can only be described as a torpedo of black carbon onto the bonnet bra and bounced over my roof and hit the car behind me.

    yes mate got them from here

    PROJECTOR HEADLIGHTS LHD "starline" for Audi A4 (B7, 11/04-08), with DRL, in bla | eBay


    listed as lhd version so bought them with intension of doing the conversion for rhd (reflector has a cut out to aim beam right on lhd to light road sign ect ,rhd aim beam to left for our signs ect, ,jut need to plate reflector to have no cut out hence straight beam no dazzling oncoming traffic) but when i looked inside the projector light they have a straight reflector already ,only beams to right on full beam which you would not use in oncoming traffic anyway so left them as is ,had no problems of dazzling oncoming traffic up to press (not been flashed anyway) kept my standards just incase i have issues at mot time .

    TBH i think these are the same light for a lot more money as listed for lhd or rhd

    AUDI A4 S4 B7 4D 05 06 07 08 LED DRL HEADLIGHT + XENON | eBay


    here are pics of what i am trying to explain 1st my wife's headlights as rhd work notice beam goes upwards on left hand side




    that is what lhd drive should be like but should go upwards on right hand side .



    now a pic of my headlights notice beam is straight accross




    hence i think these are universal left or right hand drive

    So much love for this. Bonnet bra is obviously unsightly but a necessary evil for long drives

    After smashing two windscreens through the heavy gravel they spread in Winter up here, I started using one of those bonnet bras on my car...end October - end April....guess what?....no more chipped windscreens. They do work and doesn't f*ck up the paintwork as much as gravel chips do!..I would take it off in the Summer though....yeagh, that Thursday in July! hahaha

    Lovely paintwork finish btw Matey. Good Luck!

    A set of those lights is on my shopping list I think... what bulbd are you using with them? They look like HIDs but they're illegal without washers & auto-levelling etc... unless you have that also? You say it passed an MOT ok?

    That's a great white light for non-HIDs. Any idea what brand/model the bulbs fitted are?

    Re: marmite time

    Not sure if davsa4 had upgraded his, I'll have a look later at what is fitted as standard. I got mine from the same company as the op so ill have a look later, they also sent me a free set of 7500k h9's but they are to blue for my liking. T8ups sell all sorts of bulbs on here so I've ordered a set of ice white 5000k h9's which about the best colour in my opinion.
