    Hi,

    I have an A3 (2013) SB TDI Quattro, Sline, and I'm looking into changing the standard halogen bulbs in the fogs with xenon match bulbs. Have anyone here with the 8V (sline) changed their bulbs?

    I'm pretty sure s-line have different bulbs (probably H8) in the fogs compared to non-sline, but not 100% sure.

    What I'm asking you guys for:

    - if you have changed your fog light bulbs, was it easy, and how?
    - Which type of bulbs is the correct ones for 8V sline?

    Btw,

    Extremely satisfied with the new 8V sportback :)

    thanks

    I use the same sort on my T5 as the DRL's, gives a nice, white light.

    Shouldnt be a problem as I'll only use them when it's foggy:)

    speeding is illegal too, never stops anyone tho;-)

    Just visited Audi shop in Norway yesterday, and they was saying H8 for the fogs. I'm not trusting that 100% before I see the fog bulbs that currently are fitted. On 8P the fogs had different bulbs for s-line and non s-line.

    Anyone with s-line tried changing the bulbs yet?

    Just ordered H8 GP Thunder II 7500K Xenon match bulbs. One of the best on market! Especially on H8 which is a small bulb, hard to get really white light on these. GP Thunder is det best match in my opionon compared with Höen bulbs.
