    Hey chaps!

    My full beam light on my facelift S3 is absolutely terrible compared to my normal dipped blue exenon beam. Shocking infact, completely orange compared and hardly makes a difference when used!

    Anyway from reading up on here I think it's H7 size.. Anyone know how much skin im going to use getting at them to change them? Any tips, tricks greatly appreciated!

    Cheers

    Hmm on further investigation, it seems the high full beams are H1's? Can anyone concur with this? I was under the impression they were H7's.... (under A3 8L)

    H7's are only for halogen dipped beam, you'll need H1 for the high beam.

    I stand corrected, that's the first time I've heard of H7 main beams.

    You could say...they're awesome :p

    Thats what I thought, I got a set of H1's as well but they don't fit for sure but they do fit the A3 8L & Seat Leon MK1

    Arr ok, well my S3 is a 8L I believe so the H1's still may be for mine!

    S3 8L = H7
    A3 8L = H1
