    Hi all, iv got a 95 a4, its got an H4 bulb in each side. with a bayonet cap side light. The H4's do main and dipped.

    Question is, how much work is involved to go to projectors or sumit like that... i think they use H7's yeah?
    One main/ one dipped where the side?
    whats needed? Can i just move the wires into new H7 holders?
    Is there more work, or lots less and im just bein thick?

    And am i right in thinkin that the One piece sets from the facelift fit with sum cutting of the body?

    Cheeeers all!

    Charlie

    Some serious modding is required to fit facelift model single piece headlights to a pre model. I would suggest that you buy aftermarket projectors that are made for the car. There are millions on e bay for around 150. You get new bulbs etc, just plug and play. Also you have a nice black car, the black projectors look better and meaner /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Not as big a job as you may think...Just done the same thing on my A3, and it took me about 2.5-3 hours. Just have to cut a small ibt from the inner wing and make up a intermediate loom between the harness in the car, and the headlight plug. The plug socket and wires should be removable from the old headlights (was on the A3) so you can use this to convert old to new without modifiying the original loom in the car.

    CHEAP OE HEADLIGHTS!

    This is where i got mine from, and they are great! about a third the price they are from a dealer!

    Its worth going for these as they are OE quality... Some aftermarket projectors are just ****.

    Its not an issue. Its an H, which has 2 12v wires, and 1 single ground. The ground is doubled up, and each 12v goes to each bulb.

    You can buy the plugs from audi for a couple of ££ each..along with the correct wires to fit in the plugs.
