    I know the headlight thing has been done to death, but i have searched for 2hrs this morning and cant find the answer to this.

    I have an MOT in 10 days and my S3 Xenon lights have a series of problems with adjusters, broken clips and adjuster cogs shattered..


    So my question is, can I just buy the cheap replacement Depo Halogen H1/H7 units and bulbs and just plug them in to the S3 as a quick temp fix ?


    I will then sort the original units out at a alter date when I have time on my side.

    Yes you can! Worth while getting a HID unit from Trups at EM tubing (on here) and using that instead of your s3 lamps. I opted for the 55w 6000k and it's bright, pure white (no blue) abd with a perfect! All cheaper than 1 xenon unit.

    Remember the original ballast runs D2S bulbs so if your new unit runs H1 then ballast will need to be changed anyway.

    I'm running the Depos on my S3 and the headlight adjusters clip right in.
