    Hi All, I have a 1995 N Reg Audi A4 saloon that i want to replace the Headlight Bulbs for Brighter ones also I have a few bulbs out behind the clocks display does any one know what type both of these are as most of the ones I have seen for sale are not specific about what cars they will fit especially when it comes to the Dash ones.

    I have seen some LED Type buls but am unsure if these will fit my Car,

    Many thanks,

    Simon

    I have the Audi code opton spreadsheet tool if anyone needs one :)

    LED headlight bulbs??

    I would invest in a set of HIDs - They will make a huge difference, loads of options available like ebay ones etc. plenty on Ebay for about £40 delivered if you look hard enough. Straight bulb replacements do make a difference, but won't be anywhere near as clear as HIDs.

    dont waste your time on bulbs IMO, I tried nightbreakers, 85%+ philips jobbies, even put 100W ones in for a trial.
    save your money, spend £50 on a HID kit from HID Direct and you will never look back........

    they are :o.k: use them in all my cars.
    I even replaced my 140w mains with the Nightbreakers.

    As for using cheapo HIDs .. well they're good for one thing :Flush:
    maybe two if you like annoying everyone else on the road.
    With HIDs you get what you pay for, and anything other than a proper kit with lens designed for the job you are getting half a job at best.


    No idea what the HID direct kits are but generally speaking see above.
