    I am about to go to France on Friday with my A4. I could do with a bit of advise about head light deflectors. Vindis Audi, Cambridge claim that I HAVE to get Audi's version as it is the only kit that fits, wait for it.....for £50 + VAT
    Halfords seem to offer a kit for £6.99 (inclusive of VAT)!!
    What gives??

    I've heard the same on another forum. On my TT I just flicked a switch.

    Not good.

    p.s. Are your's Xenons as I'm not sure if what I read was Halogen or Xenon.

    Halogen. I think older A4's had a switch but B6's don't.
    Good old German logic.........

    I used to go to France every year with my parents as a nipper, and I seem to remember some people using black sticky tape as deflectors, so I reckon you'll be ok with the halfords ones!

    I don't know what the legal blurb is, but there's no way I'd pay £50+vat for a few bits of plastic I'm gonna use for a couple of weeks then chuck away, and I can't really see the gendarme pulling you over and giving you a ticket because you're deflectors are not Audi approved!! After all, they all drive citroens and renaults, so how would they know! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I believe the GB sticker is also a legal requirement, but you won't find me sticking anything to my cars, never get the damn things off again. Best to go with a magnetic one and hope no-one nicks it!

    Have a good holiday!
