    Hi guys,

    I'm currently contemplating fitting a set of hid's but i wanted to know, if they give a bulb error on the dash, is it possible to reset this via vagcom?

    cheers

    You can do it yourself easily enough so why pay someone the labour to fit them?!

    sorry should have said that i have some on the way but i don't know whether they will give errors or not. I just wanted to know whether the bulb error can be rectified or if i would have to change to another hid set to get around this?

    cheers

    a4 tc- ill get a couple pics over the weekend bud cause im getting the windows tinted on saturday so itll kill 2 birds with 1 stone so to speak.

    pav mate u wont be disapointed, the hardest thing from what i could see was finding a place to mount the ballasts, the rest is just plug and play, but then again i didnt fit them lol.
    i also recomend the 6000k temp, nice blue tint but nothing stupid or chavvy. its also a H7 bulb your after mate just incase ur not sure. i guarantee itll be one of the best mods ull do

    Did you have to realign your headlights? Any problems with dazzling other motorists?

    As long as the headlamps were aligned properly before hand then there is no problem after fitting the bulbs.
