Can DS2 Bulbs be fitted to my car with DS3 Bulbs fitted standard?

SimplyTheBest1989 Sep 12, 2011

  1. Hi,

    Just a quick question as the title suggests... I bought some DS2 Bulbs thinking thats what was fitted to my car as this is what autobulbs direct told me, then I found out that the bulbs that came standard were D3S. Therefore just wanting to know if the D3S bulbs can just be poped out the holder and the D2S's poped in as a direct replacement to the holder?? as the base of the bulbs looks the same to me. :)

    Car is a 2011 (60 plate) 2.0TDi 170 Black Edition Quattro

    Cheers.

    in a word... NO!

    why not just return the bulbs and get them exchanged?

    i was going to suggest those, i have been speaking to him and had some business with him myself and have to say his service is second to none.

    going to see if he can become some sort of sponsor for us here as there are loads of Audi owners looking to get bulbs and it would benefit us all... including HIDs direct.

    simply the best 1989,

    I also bought bulbs based on the duff info from auto bulbs, did you get sorted with D3S and are they any good, i'm after some in 6000k.

    cheers.
     
  13. Still to get them changed... getting 8000k :) you might get your money back from autobulbs and get them exchanged for the proper ones?
