    No where, i have tired about 5 different places, ranging from £10 LED's to non error £40.00 LED's.

    The B7's always seem to throw up the error, unless you fit resistors.

    I got them from Ebay, and no there are no error codes.

    What bulb are the fogs again? H11's or H7s? Just ebay ''HID HX X0000K'' the first X being the type of bulb and the second X being the colour rating i.e 6000k or 8000k.

    It was a 5 minute job changing them over, taking off the belly pan etc and installing the ballasts using cable ties under the front bumper etc.

    Just make sure that they are CAN BUS compliant lamps - then no faults, mine work OK. if you fit resistor's make sure they are attached to metal body NOT plastic otherwise will melt and poss fire hazzard !?!@:crying:

    I'm not messing with resistors, I will just get can bus side lights, I have just put them in my actually side lights and no errors so I'll get some of those. Are they H7?

    Thanks guys.

    What LED's have you put in your sidelights, and where did you get them from?

    Thanks, will get some then, as the yellow sidelights don't go with the xenons. With regards to fitting them in your fogs though, won't they be too dull/not give off enough light?

    Yeah I think they'll be ok, if you turn on just your sidelights in the middle of the day you get a big White/reflection from whatever your parked infront of. I can't believe the difference they make!

    can't wait to get them, as have DRL function but the yellow is too crappy at the moment. These will certainly make a difference.

    They're the Original Audi Adaptive xenons (i.e. they move as you turn corners to highlight the way you're going better), not sure on the K rating.

    The DRL function only turns the sidelights on, they're not seperate LEDs as on the B8 audis. Hence why I wanted to get whiter bulbs in there.

    Ah I see, my mate has them on his S3.

    I like my Tdi but if we had a second car I'd change mine and get a 3.2, I love the noise they make. The problem with a turbo for me is that there is every point in modifying them and for that reason only I will.

    There's no point tuning a 3.2 so a simple cat back and I'm done. Save some cash!!
