Hmmm Interesting glad I didn't order those last night then, but you would highly recommend them?
Well now I cant wait to fit mine, Reckon ill have a blast tomorrow!!
Damn I should have done them by now, Im getting tooooo lazy, Look how long it took me to spray my Fog covers black again...4months!!
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
i think i should get a cut of there profits with the amount of business ive passed to them from you guys lol
I think we should change title to this thread to 'Who's left'
haha, i apologise for the bashing i have caused your wallets chaps
Chris - You should have rep'd for them or Bulk stocked up.I wonder if they would have gave any discount for the amount that are actually buying..
...didnt get a chance to fit mine today either.Hope it doesnt take as long as my fog covers ,Gotta get back into the swing of things!
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.
So am I right in saying its best to go for the top ones (79.99)? Gonna jump on this here band wagon if you don't mind
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
what sidelights are u using m8??
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.
Yer jeff thats completely normal for them to flicker when u first turn them on!good idea about the bulb but apparently xenon bulbs last as long as the car(so ive been told)
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.
Any chance of posting the link, in case I change my mind?
http://stores.ebay.co.uk/ACEparts-Performance-Lighting was where they came from, can't seem to find them on there - have a look through though. They weren't LED ones.
