    Very interested in this but i'm going to be 'that' guy.

    As mentioned he Dan (Welldonehid) directly via PM I have aftermarket headlights so have been concerned with the fitment of the HID kits, however he has assured me that "Sure you can install the HID kit in any aftermarket." which is fantastic.

    My question is, with welldone/this groupbuy are we covered by any warranty (of the parts) or returns if needed? And are we covered for any wiper faults (which i'm sure there will be none, not having a dig haha)

    Told you I had to be that guy but i'm sure i'll be dropping my name down for a kit very soon. Cheers!

    I was initially sent the wrong kit, well done payed for me to post back to them while they sent out the correct kit at a deal price.

    I also had issues with hid bulbs flickering when main beam was also being used, Welldone sent out new ballasts free in order to correct the issue.

    I'm sure you'll have no problems with the company, like I said before, as long as you contact them through whatsapp customer service is great.

    Ah brilliant! Don't get me wrong i'm all for the company and all that, i just like to know where I stand with things these days, had alot of problems with parts and such alike with all matter of things over the years with other companies and as the income is getting less and the wallet is getting even more neglected so like to know where i'm at before buying.

    :laugh:

    Initially I thought the same as I was the first person to purchase from them on here as far as I know, nobody had bought them before or as far as we knew nobody had tried the product before. Was a bit nervous when I first started using them and after no reply from Welldone through emails I thought the worst. But then after such helpful advise and co operation through whatsapp and them saying they won't give up until my product was flawless helps to settle the mind.

    also because WellDone are not that well known and heard of, i would believe it would be in their best interest to be helpful and sell a great product.

    I mean, if all our wipers blow, theres going to be alot of angry forum members posting around, that would be the end of the companys name, so its their business on the line. and welldone are confident obviously so we should all be also!

    Im looking forward to fitting it lol.

    Hi Siddo,

    I understand your doubts & fears, happens all the time in every forum. :laugh:
    People had already to many bad experiences related to the wiper motor in the Audi A3.
    Let me explain to you about it & give you more details.

    We offer 3 year guarantee in all our HID kits (except the cheapest one WD01, since it's only £40)
    On top of that, we pay for any shipment or return of any part in guarantee.
    Usually companies ask the client to send the goods back to the warehouse & pay for the shipping.

    Covered for wiper motor faults?
    That will never happen with our HID kit for Audi A3.
    Our HID won't blow away wiper motors (A3 & Peugeot 407) nor make interference with radio or ABS /ESP (A4).

    I want to let you know that you are not early adopters for this product.
    This HID kits were developed in 2008 (6 years ago) since then only minor updates were made to the kit.
    Few Audi A3 owners were testing this kits from September 2008 in Spain & after some months using the HID kit without issues we started to offer them to the public.
    Until 2008 we refused to install HID kits on any Audi A3 8P, since we were very aware of the consequences.

    - Review of a Spanish client in January 2009 (after the 1st Group Buy):
    Kit Xenon Welldone especial A3 8P - Audi A3 8P (2003-2012) - Audisport Iberica

    - Review of a Canadian client in April 2011.
    VWVortex.com - Well-Done HID kits

    About 10 Group Buys were made in different Audi forums since then.
    Won't post the links because there are so many... but anyone can google about it.
    Not a single person in those Group Buys had an issue with their wiper motor.



    Right JJ, we are very confident about it :happy:
    It's been about 10 Group Buys without any issue.
    Don't have knowledge about anyone doing GB for Audi A3 8P.
    HID companies try not to work with this cars.

    Our company is not well known in UK yet.
    In many Audi forums from other countries people only recommend to use this HID kits.
    Anyone worried about their wiper motor can google about it & will find lots of reviews & feedback from real users.

    Thanks for clearing that up Dan,
    To clarify I do have all faith with your products over all the other **** that's out there hence why I've put my name down for a kit!
    Looking forward to getting it bought and installed now!

    I'd be happy to also write a full review of the kit, installation and everything just like others have for the benifit of the other forum users.

    Cheers!

    For those asking about Welldone HID kits & aftermarket headlights you don't have any think to worry about it.
    They can be installed without any issue.
    Found some pics from clients using our HID for A3 in different headlights for your reference.

    There has been a company in the UK apart from the one u mentioned that has been doing aftermarket hid for a3's with 24 month warranty and works perfectly for the car for a one off cost of around £60.

    There are hundreds of companies selling "HID for Audi A3", none of them safe for the wiper motor no matter what they claim.

    This companies use a regular cheap aftermarket HID kit (like the HID kits we sell at £40) & add some relays, battery harness, to sell it as HID for Audi A3.
    Within 24h or within 3 years, most likely the wiper motor will fail.
    If you are lucky enough, it will never fail, but just because your Audi A3 belong to the 20% that does not have the wiper motor issues and not because of the HID kit you are using.

    If adding relays or battery harness to a cheap HID kit was the solution, it would have been discovered long time ago.
    The solution is much more simple than that, old generation ballast (like the one you have installed) must be avoided.

    To guarantee the wiper motor safety new generation HID ballast are needed.
    New generation ballast like the ones Audi & VW have been using for the last years, very different from your £60 HID kit.


    Few examples of companies claiming they sell HID for A3 & clients reporting problems with the motor.
    Your won't see this kind of comments about our A3 HID kit.

    Never meant any disrespect to your product at all. But in actual fact the company where I actually got my kit from have actually been in negotiations with audi/vw in regards to their anti wiper problem and I've know people who have been using this kit for over 5 years, Atleast 10 audi a3 owners.

    What do you mean with they have been in negotiations with Audi/VW ?

    People running a HID kit without blowing the motor away is not uncommon.
    About 20% of Audi A3 do not suffer any problem with the wiper motor, no matter what HID they use.
    We also had clients using HID on their A3 since 2006, some never had any issue with the motor & some did.

    Interference that cause the wiper motor to fail is spread by air, due to high voltage (25.000v) from the HID.
    HID create many interferences, in the A3 to the wiper motor, in A4B6 to the ABS, to the AM/FM Radio...
    As long as there is high voltage the interference can make the wiper motor fail.

    Both sets will be 6000k.

    My mains are H11 for sure, i changed them 3 weeks ago before I left home. I cant remember the fog size but I know they are not the same as the normal A3 fogs ( had that problem before )
    So this plug and play Kit on the Website does this include the HID and the housings ? anyone ? Id like to have the Projectors with the HID's for my mains.

    Cheers !

    The Audi A3 version for United States & Canada has H11 bulbs instead of H7.
    So both of you are right ;)
