    Which A3 have you got? Theres an issue with using HID kits in the A3 as it can cause the wiper motor to blow unless used with a specially made loom. I used a loom with an ebay HID kit with no problems for 6months except the error on the dash when the lights were on, the kit was a canbus kit too.

    The issues with aftermarket hid kits is it will most likely blow the wiper motor, just fit oem's if you're going to.

    After you get me to fit media systems Kieron :p
