    Have emailed today and sure enough, I can return the bulb failure capacitors for a refund. What a great guy to deal with!

    If you are going to convert your headlights to HID, then THIS is definitely the place to go

    As soon as I bought the car, I fitted my xenons there and then! The guy didn't have a clue what was going on, but it took me all of 15 mins to get the old ones out and the xenons in. Best mod you can do providing you stay under 6000k.

    I bought the top ones. When I called to check on the order he told me I needed the resistor for an additional tenner. I fitted with the resistor and have no fault lights. More than happy. Last 4 cars had Xenon, I was shocked at how bad the stock lights were. Audi should be ashamed selling cars with the standard lights. Shame on you Audi

    Does anyone else find that when they first switch the lights on, the HIDs momentarily flair really brightly, then ease back a fraction? I hope this is normal behaviour.

    I too was struck by the difference between the yellow sidelights & the white light of the HIDs when I was looking at them in daylight, but then I realised it doesn't matter, because it's undetectable when it's dark. Even if I've got them on in daylight, I won't see them because I'm driving, and I don't care if anyone else notices.

    What I do think is a good idea is that we should all order a spare set of HID bulbs from HID Direct, and keep them in the car. If a bulb does go, we can't just pop into Halfords or the nearest petrol station & pick one up.

    My OEM Xenons flicker when fisrt turned on, especially in the colder weather. Nothing to worry about providing they do calm down after a minute or two.

    I bought a 6000K kit from ebay, £46 delivered. Works perfectly well, no bulb warnings.

    In case anyone is interested, I picked up a pair of white-ish sidelight bulbs from ebay for £2.98 delivered, as opposed to anything from £7+ plus postage on the usual 'bulb' websites. They match the HIDs very well.
