    Must be that time of the year, tbh I have had mine months now, and have never got round to fitting them, but one of my headlight bulbs went on Thursday so it sorta forced my hand.

    Which K did you go for?

    I'm at work and can't see the pics :banghead:

    @J7 - I've had my 6000k over two years now, when I first fitted them they were fine, but like you I feel they are now too blue. I heard that thye do get 'bluer' over time.

    oooh, i plan to do mine tomorrow guys, mine are 5000k.

    Mine are not slim ballasts, will they still go on? It was a set i got from HIDs4U on my old car.

    Where does everyone fit them? Its not a huge job to do is it?
    Cheers!

    Hello Guys,

    Wouldn't mind fitting HIDs myself. Do they play up with the DIS showing blown headlight bulbs or do they seem ok?
    I've heard of a couple of cars doing this as the HIDs seem to pull a litttle less current..

    Cheers,

    Mark

    The one's I purchased as per the link are really easy to fit, just plug and play and all the connections are good quality so no bulb warnings.

    I think it's possible to do with the lights in place if you have girls hands, but I would say it's far easier to do by taking the lights out.

    Yes, your lights need to come out but its not that hard. 4 torx heads and they slide out. HID's are an essential upgrade on the A4 as the lights are soo poor. I think this pic shows the difference in a standard and xenon light.

    thanks for that.

    don't know if i should replace my HIDs4U kit or not.... The ballests + ignitors are huge and i cant seem to find space for them in the A4... Also today i found they are 6k not the 5k i ordered 2 years ago! always thought they were a little blue... not sure what to do now!

I ordered 4300k but on the pakaging box it indicates H7 6000k how can I tell which one it is? is there a marking on actual bulb? there is some letters on bulbs but what they means?
