    Ok so I had the auto electrics guy take a look at the motor over the weekend.

    With regards to the DRL, they are actually drawing quite a bit more resistance than the standard P21w incandescent bulbs (which is the opposite to what they should be doing). Unfortunately it doesn’t look like you can take resistance away therefore I don’t think there is a fix for them. We think the errors are appearing due to them taking more current than normal, rather than too little.

    So with that being that I’m all out of ideas..

    So I finally got round to fitting the bulbs and am very pleased with them (no errors), however, I was wondering what dipped/main beam bulbs everyone is using as obviously the standard yellowy halogens don't go with the DRLs? Pictures would be greatly appreciated of how the bulbs look with the DRLs.

    It's OK. What do you rate better though, the brightness or the colour? My A3 is an 8P2 and doesn't have those fancy side lights like yours, is the bulb fitment still the same? I'd be wanting side lights too to go with the dipped headlights.

    yeah which means you would need error free side lights, the colour and the brightness erm well the colour is as white as your going to get without being blue or yellow, and there perfect brightness just the same as standard ones if not better.. ill get another pic later ill change one bk to the normal bulb its not to hard... yeah my bulb fitment is the same but i have a Day time running bulb for a sidelight.

    Andi,

    After changing my bulbs at the weekend, I realised the bulb is in a holder, do you get this holder with your hid kit?
