    Can someone clarify for me please - I have a MY08 S3, I'm going to order the P21W DRL bulbs, are the sidelight bulbs relevant as well? I'm a bit confused as some are saying you don't need the sidelights if you have DRLs?

    Thanks

    Cars with DRLs will still have parkers, at least they do in Australia. Here u can select to have the DRL on or off (separate switch) and then u put the light switch on parkers (not on auto).

    Fitted mine this evening and I'm very happy so far. The standard 5w sidelight bulbs looked really brown compared to these. The only down-side is that now I need to get some better H7's as they seem quite yellow next to these.

    Just for those who arent sure it looks like the pre my09 models which had drl p21w also have sidelights in there

    If you have a my09 my10 model then it uses the drl bulb as a sidelight so there is no seperate sidelight.

    Hi they certanly should work with ease on that model something must be amiss

    Try swapping the bulbs over left to right see if the issue follow across

    Also remember if you fit them with the lights / ignition on the cars cabus system will shut that circuit down so you will need to reset the ingnition by turning the car off completely and removing the key to re engage that circuit again.

    Also remeber the leds are polarity senstive so if it doesnt work one way around it will need re inserting the opposite way around,

    thanks

    Ok tried every different way possible but couldn't get them to stay on and have no bulb errors! The only way I could get them to work is with just the ignition off, no key in and the light switch on!

    My wife has a 2006 tdi sportback and I have just tried them in there and they work fine with no errors!

    The main difference between our cars is I have bi-xenons and she just has normal halogens, could it be that they don't like xenons?

    Hi ive ordered the DRL's for my 58 plate A3 1.9tdi s line sportback,would the HID kit you sell for my car be the same colour as the DRL's ive ordered and what colour temp are they (ie 6000k).

    Also have these HID kits been tried and tested and are they guaranteed not to blow the wiper motor ?

    So with the 15% discount would the price for the kit be £85 delivered ?

    cheers chris

    thses look verry similar to the ones i tried and didnt work ( not from you ) they come up as error then after 10 mins worked but this was every start up. my understanding that was due to the output the car thinks the bulb has blown.

    ill try and get the thread up. what makes these diffrent ?
