    Does that Kit really just replace the original bulbs and fit perfect as for £50 that seem like a good deal.

    VRBOB - worth bearing in mind that it's actually illegal to fit those without the auto-levelling balasts/suspension and washers.

    Most people seem to get away with it even though it should technically fail an MOT: if it has Xenons, the washers and auto-levelling should be tested, so probably only really an issue in France where les gendarmes love an excuse to pull GB plates over (checking for spare bulbs, non-compliant headlights and GPS/radar/laser camera detectors).... the latter of which is a €1500 fine!

    Cheers Lostbok yeah i thought they had to have the washers but i kinda like the xenons i had on my old S3 and for the money that looked like a good mod.

    Maybe once i have done the RNS-E etc i may think about it

    No mate who told him that it was anything to do with MOTs ?
    i knew thet were technically illegal but so are 100w bulbs but if there set up correctly with a good beam pattern i personally dont see a problem.

    It is illegal - so if you fit one and the headlights are creating glare because of poor beam pattern or difracting light into oncoming traffic due to the lens not being cleaned, you will get pulled and that is the law that they will quote to you:

    i always keep my car clean, its my passion with the red, looks good but looks amazing when clean !!! So i keep her spotless :)

    Plus its not a "Law" hense why it says in the departments view!

    as i said i see no problem with the B6 as it has Xenon approved headlamps and adjustable beams. so all its missing is the washing jets, which from what i can tell on my dads car, do not work very well.

    Hi paul20v the picture is not very clear but they do look like the aero arms fitted generally to the B7 but also on some later B6s'. If I didn't have any I would have had them by now. Well worth the money.;)

    8H something there not here at the moment ,
    audi dealer said the part numbers were for cab only gutted
    i wondered as most stuff for the B6 is 8E part numbers so i rang them and that was that
    offering them up the drivers side wont sit on the screen properly
    so i have some aero wipers for sale for a cab :laugh:

    I am actually starting to like the look of the S4 Avus alloys over the RS6 18" alloys I have as they are nowhere near as common as the RS6's, and they really look the business on Niknaks motor !!!

    However, I really don't think I can convince the wife tho....so, if anyone out there in Audi land fancies swapping their 18" Avus S4 alloys for a set of RS6's replicas (plus maybe "some" cash) then let me know.......
