    Timmy, have a butchers at these. Although 4300k (OEM) offer the most useable light, 5000k have no hint of yellow at all in them and don't sacrifice function for looks. I've had unbranded bulbs in mine for 15 months and they've never given me a problem. Aim the headlights a little higher using VagCom and you'll get the most out of the appalling S3 xenons.

    Right guys the discount code is audi20.

    If you order their LED sidelights you need to order the dash error kit that will stop any dash lights coming up.

    Enjoy boys, just ordered my H7 bulbs, also ordered some 6000k bulbs off ebay :)

    Well ive never heard of any problems with the sidelights or the main beams, didnt think it mattered what bulb was in the main beam, though people only had trouble with the dipped beams.

    Right, I ordered my bulbs on Thursday night and they're here today....very quick shipping so excellent service in my book :)

    Anyway they're in and working. I had the xenon match H7's and H4's and out of the box they're the same power rating as my old ones so no worries about meltong anything which is good. Fitted the drivers side first and then fired them up to compare against the stock bulbs on the passenger side. They're much MUCH whiter and make the old ones look very yellow indeed so happy days :)

    They're not any 'brighter' but its a different light for sure, much more crisp and white. Looking forward to it getting dark so I can give them a real go.

    Overall very happy, thanks again Dani for sorting the group buy and if xenonshop etc is readong this thread then thanks for the quick service.

    Anyone umming and ahhing over buying some then I'd say do it.

    Cheers

    Tom

    I was a bit worried when I first opened them as the glass is very blue but all is good once they're on :)

    Good match with the sides too so happy days.

    Right, night time test completed.

    Light is much whiter and seems to light everything up nicely...mainly road signs, hazard lines etc. Full beam is a lot better too so all in all I'm pretty chuffed. I think they're as bright as they'll ever be!.
