Does that Kit really just replace the original bulbs and fit perfect as for £50 that seem like a good deal.
 
VRBOB - worth bearing in mind that it's actually illegal to fit those without the auto-levelling balasts/suspension and washers.

Most people seem to get away with it even though it should technically fail an MOT: if it has Xenons, the washers and auto-levelling should be tested, so probably only really an issue in France where les gendarmes love an excuse to pull GB plates over (checking for spare bulbs, non-compliant headlights and GPS/radar/laser camera detectors).... the latter of which is a €1500 fine!

Cheers Lostbok yeah i thought they had to have the washers but i kinda like the xenons i had on my old S3 and for the money that looked like a good mod.

Maybe once i have done the RNS-E etc i may think about it
 
It is illegal - so if you fit one and the headlights are creating glare because of poor beam pattern or difracting light into oncoming traffic due to the lens not being cleaned, you will get pulled and that is the law that they will quote to you:

From the DoT link:
In the Department's view it is not legal to sell or use after market HID lighting kits, for converting conventional Halogen headlamps to HID Xenon. If a customer wants to convert his vehicle to Xenon HID he must purchase completely new Xenon HID headlamps..... Once fitted to the vehicle it must have headlamp cleaning and self-levelling (which can be for the headlamp or can be in the vehicle suspension - some expensive estate cars have "self-levelling suspension" and that is adequate). Also the dipped beam must stay on with the main beam.

i always keep my car clean, its my passion with the red, looks good but looks amazing when clean !!! So i keep her spotless :)

Plus its not a "Law" hense why it says in the departments view!

as i said i see no problem with the B6 as it has Xenon approved headlamps and adjustable beams. so all its missing is the washing jets, which from what i can tell on my dads car, do not work very well.

are these suitable for a B6/B7 then it doesnt say
Hi paul20v the picture is not very clear but they do look like the aero arms fitted generally to the B7 but also on some later B6s'. If I didn't have any I would have had them by now. Well worth the money.;)

i wondered as most stuff for the B6 is 8E part numbers so i rang them and that was that
offering them up the drivers side wont sit on the screen properly

I am actually starting to like the look of the S4 Avus alloys over the RS6 18" alloys I have as they are nowhere near as common as the RS6's, and they really look the business on Niknaks motor !!!

However, I really don't think I can convince the wife tho....so, if anyone out there in Audi land fancies swapping their 18" Avus S4 alloys for a set of RS6's replicas (plus maybe "some" cash) then let me know.......

Yer I thought the price was a bit high, even with the plastic surround and cig lighter.

Yep over priced but I did just buy a RS4 boot lid off him and might by the bonnet as well if I can get it home.
