    Evening all

    I replaced my D1S bulbs yesterday but now after about 2 minutes all my headlights turn off. And then after a minute they come back on I've checked all the plugs are plugged in properly. I've had to take them out and go back to the old bulbs that have started to start losing the light output and colour. If it helps it's in a 2010 S3 thanks for any help you can give me.

    Maybe its the ballast. i had similar symptoms on my a3 and it turned out to be the ballast under the headlight.

    My 2010 a3 has d2s bi xenon bulbs, sure you have the right ones?
    I upgraded to osram nightbreakers d2s and have the best light ever.
