    I have the first type (bought from Bez funnily enough :)). Can't fault them. Stick a set of HIDs in and they're brill.

    They're still H7 bulbs in these ones. I have HIDs in mine and its a massive improvement on the standard candles.

    Chuck it away I guess, but they have a years warranty and LEDs are fairly reliable.

    It's not a massive job to remove the bumper or the headlights and as the new headlights state on there advert there is no rewiring involved so a pretty easy job really

    Anyone done this without switching to HIDS? I think it looks BRILLIANT, but am worried about MOT failures and such. The A4 i'm buying doesn't have auto-levelling lights or washers, retrofitting would be EXPENSIVE I guess.

    When I had my LED lights installed, it passed its MOT, but Audi did say they had to move the light a little to pass it. No hassles, though. The bulbs in mine are H7 (blue tint) which seems bright enough.

    The Halogen bulb wasn't lined up properly in the reflector or something?

    most headlight needs aligning
    he wont have done them when he bought and fitted them
    hence audi did it for the MOT

    Yeah Bez is right, they just needed moving slightly - too high I think! At least they didn't fail it and then charge me!!

    What bulbs do you have in for dipped/main beam? - Do they match the LED colour for the DRLs?
