    ALL LIGHTS - Front Facing

    hi, i have S-Line A4 B7 Avant 2005 and thinking of changing all the lightbulbs at the front to ice white. The Phillips Diamond white really take my fancy with some led sidelights and ice white fogs... what i wanted to know is it only the side light bulbs that throw up an error code on the dash or do i need to check all the bulbs before i buy.

    just for the record im changing
    sidelights
    fogs
    main beam and dipped

    also is it true that on a S-Line you dont need to remove the bumper to change the bulbs?

    Thanks In Advance

    Headlights are fairly easy just unclip, sidelights need a good tug, don't twist! Fogs and sline are easy I believe just remove surround and you can access them that way.

    I've just done my sides and headlights (main and dipped). Makes a big difference

    Sidelights were a bit of a pain to do - bit unnerving having to tug on the wires like that, but got there in the end.

    I didnt bother with the fog lights, cos frankly, within the last 10 years, I could probably count on both hands the number of times i've had to use front fogs..... and in weather where you do need fog lights, I dont think anyones really looking at how nice and white your bulbs are.

    Guess its nice to have it all matching, but in lets be honest, your front fogs are going to be predominantly un-noticed, unless you like to use them incorrectly.

    Just my tuppence though

    Just done them all what a mission. Fog light screws were rounded off. Wire came off sidelights. Starting raining hard. Am all cold and wet and feel abused. I guess I had to change these sooner or later. Thanks to trups for the bulbs

    That was what I feared when I was doing the sidelights. How did you manage to get the holder out if the wire came off?!

    Bit of a bonkers design if you ask me!
