    What i would like to know is what bulb colour temperature to order for the sidelights, high beam and fogs and what type of bulb they are ?

    Thanks

    Check out this thread http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=30256

    I went for the PIAA Xtreme Force 4700K, H7 for Mains, W5W for Sides. Can't remember the fogs but have a look in the manual.

    By the way changing the bulbs were a right b@stard!!!!

    FYI bulb colour temp is really only applicable to genuine xenon HID's.

    Get some PIAA sidelights, and avoid LED's as they burn out very quickly or start flickering. The new thing to do is get 3000k xenon's for the fog lights for that old school bright yellow 80's look.

    cant find out what bulbs i need to change for the high beam ?

    All websites seem to say different.

    As I said I have xenons so only need to change one pair of bulbs, some websites are suggesting H4 which cant be right as they are twin filament bulbs for high/dipped beam.

    The main beams on the S3 headlamps are H7's, personally i am running some PIAA Extreme White Plus bulbs, which are listed as 4000k and are fairly close to the white of the HID bulbs, hope this helps mate.

    Its also worth changing the side light bulbs at the same time to complete the "white look" they are W5W fitment. Also if you are gonna go the whole hog the fog lamp bulbs are also H7's
