    So finally here is the group buy for wiper motor safe HID's!
    and safe for ESP A4 problems? (or something like that lol)

    THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION THREAD, on MOT's, legality, blinding etc.

    This will last 3/4 weeks. So enough time to get your monthly pay cheque in. I have nothing to do with the company but to organise a group buy for the benefit of the members of this forum!

    There are a few different kits to choose from, they produce their own kit which is the cheapest and they also sell a Valeo (made in Europe) and mitsubishi (made in Japan) ballasts with their own wiring kit and their own safe bulbs to plug and play safely. These kits are more OEM quality ballasts which means: a faster start up time, longer lasting, and slightly brighter burning.

    A member of the forum has had one of the WellDoneHID kits in since the start of the year and im sure smurfworth will back up the products. HIS REVIEW IS BELOW.
    http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/a3-s3-sportback-8p-chassis/206299-well-done-hid-review.html

    Note. HID's should be used in projector lenses as to not blind oncoming traffic.


    Here are the prices with and without the 20% discount. (im sure you can all math but i did it anyway)
    Prices may change slightly due to the conversion rate so the £ currency is approx.


    *** PRICES in euro then conversion as of today ***

    1. A38P kit. bulb type 155E £127 -20% -> £101

    2. Europe Valeo kit. 238E £195 -20% -> £156

    3. Japan Mitsubishi kit. 245E £201 - 20% -> £160

    Bulb choices for all kits. H1,, H7, H11, D1S, D2S,

    Colour choice for all kits. 4300k (the colour of natural daylight eg the sun, the normalish yellow,orange colour.)
    or 6000k (which is the ice white colour, eg new merc's and Xenon looks. Tho the OEM kits will make slight yellow)

    Postage is 7Euro which is around £5.70 on top.

    I will be the one updating the 'list' so to not get anything confused. just post in the thread which kit you want and in what colour, and what bulb!
    for eg.

    'JJ.Foulds, Mitsubishi kit H7, 6000k.'

    When the groupbuy ends a coupon code will be sent out to the members from the list.


    So to start the list!!!

    1. JJ.Foulds -> A38P 6000k
    2.
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.
    8.
    9.
    10.


    They also sell the wiper repair service, 55E £45.

    ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PRODUCTS ONLY just ask in this thread, i am in contact with the company so will get back with an answer quickly.


    This is a link to their website and the HID choices.
    Audi A3 - Welldone Lighting


    The orders will be made directly in the website using a Coupon Code.

    1. The product is not endorsed by ASN, and;
    2. The product and company have nothing to do with myself
    3. Any contract is between buyer and seller and ASN or myself hold no liabilities with respect of either.

    Do these work with auto lights or does it throw the bulb error?

    Having auto lights will not affect it at all. The HID kit its just like a bulb change, it will not effect anything else.

    not sure why you want to change the bulb fitment?

    You would need to change the headlights to have a diffrent fitment, for example i bought after market lights and it changed my full beam from H7 to a H1.

    But all the bulbs work the same just different fitment.

    In that case just buy the after conversion bulb size, so buy the H11 ready.

    Seems like you have an Audi A4 B7.
    You will be fine then, the worst problem your car can have from a bad hid is some Radio AM/FM interferences.
    Besides that, you don't need to worry to much.

    hi guys,
    apart from the 3 xenon kit models from the list, you can ask for another?

    Payment will be through their website, with a special discount code, and i would expect you to receive the kit a week or so later, as it is traveling through EU.

    You still need the ballasts the run the HID's, so unless he has the pair already. and the new bulb would have to fit the housing already on the car.

    It doesn't matter what HID u get for the A3, they all cause the same problem, it is a one off sort of situation for the A3 that the high voltage needed for electric arc in the bulb kills the motors.
    Its the same interferance that causes problems for the A4 also.

    WellDone's kits do not use highvoltage cables like nearly all others do, and this stops the interferance.

    Our first versions of the A38P HID bulbs were similar to HxR bulbs.
    The results were not so good, so when we updated the bulbs we removed the coating to give a cleaner light cut off.
    Halogen headlights are not designed to fit H7R bulbs nor DxR bulbs...

    As you can see in some users review our H7 bulbs give a really good light cut off even when used in Halogen headlights.

    HID BULBS

    Anyway, if you are really worried about using HID bulbs in halogen headlights i would suggest you to try other solutions.

    - Projector headlights (£270-300)
    Xenon headlights Audi A3 - Plug & Play - Welldone Lighting

    - Projector retrofit (£65-80)
    Projectors - Welldone Lighting

    Im a little confused. But yes xenons have projector headlights, its the half glass sphere in the headlight which spreads the light. Halogen reflector housings are the large area ones, most have these for fullbeam and most common cars have these as standard.

    H7 is a bulb fitment.
    Projector lense or reflector are headlights
    HID or halogen is type of bulb

    Looks like most of the people prefer 6000K color temperature. Maybe you can give some reasons why it's more popular than 4300k ? I still have time to change my mind.

    well 4300k is the similar colour light colour output to a normal halogen, a bit orangey. this is actually the best light output and its the easiest for humans to see.

    however.

    6000k looks far better from outside and is only a tiny bit less output. its the ice white colour that makes tis popular.

    look at the photo's above, the top one would b a 4300k colour (but obviously brighter with hid) and the bottom would b 6000k.
    4300 is similar to street light on road where as the 6000k isnt.

    hope it helps. youtube thse colours and have a look

    Incorrect, top one is 5000k diamond vision bulbs bottom is 6000k hid bulb.

    I was also given 4300k bulbs and they are awful to sit behind, you pick out more detail on the road like stones etc with 6000k due to the colour.

    6000k is better for lanes too as you can see oncoming traffics lights in your whiter/bluer light.
