    Those photos are awesome mate good work. The car looks stunning.

    Where did you get the LEDs from if you don't mind me asking and did they throw up any bulb warning lights?

    I only found this out from my mate (owns his own garage and is an MOT Tester) last week. For the price and if installed correctly HID's are excellent.

    I am trying to find something that is similar to HID's for the price but I dont think its going to happen.

    The lights look great. Do you have specific links to the ones you bought?

    Cheers

    Cheers for the links. Did you have to wire resistors for the fogs?

    I ran my A3 with an HID in for nearlly 2 years, never had any unwanted attention with them, but I had adjusted the cut off shields in the projector housing to give them a decent cut off and had them correctly aimed. Trouble with the B7 is they have reflectors which are really bad when HID kits are fitted in them. I have been dazzled on numerous occasions by people with HIDs in reflectors. Now they get my bi-xenon full beam as they come towards me. Pics look wicked by the way, the white makes it look nice a crisp.:thumbsup:Do the number plate lights throw up any errors? Want to fit them to mine, they look awesome.

    Loving the pics! Great setting too. Think I'm going to have to get some LED side/fogs now too...

    Also, where did you get your front splitter from??

    Spot on, £44.39 in VAT. There may be one on ebay locally for £30... Anyone know if there's any pics of one on a STANDARD s-line bumper, not the one slim boi's got? I've only got a bumper like this: https://www.motoringpicturelibrary.com/docs/4580picc.jpg and don't want a splitter to stick out too far and look odd...? Have searched and googled to no avail

    Thats why your not getting errors, if you plug your car into VCDS it will say you got the fog bulb and plate lamps out.

    if you got FULL DIS you will throw an error up for fogs and plate lamps on there, so you got the better DIS as you can get it looking good like you have without the pesky error.
