I have the H7 Philips xenon kit, and would like ideas for a good location spot to place my ballasts...

Would you have pics of where you installed yours ?

Cheers... :D

Mine is mounted to the headlight housing... :wink: What type of ballasts do you have? When I had the standard H7 headlamps, I located one Hella ballast under the power steering cover and the other one was zip tied to the radiator support out of sight.

I was thinking of upgrading my stock lights because I think they suck. So with that said what are my options?

Thanks

Btw.. I have a 2002 1.8T
I would recommend European Bi-Xenons or a Hella retrofit into your stock housings...

yea I'd sure like the xenon unit route, but that ain't going to happen for me...anyway I already have the Philips xenon from my previous A4...they are the Philips 35W ballasts...

Sorry for borrow this topic.


I tried to change the highbeam lamp whitout to remove the whole light house.
That was da** hard.
You other who have this HID mod, how did you change it?

I pulled off the bumper...Not the quickest way to do things, but I figured it was probably the cleanest.
Ok. I did that once, and have problem with getting the light at right position again. (change light after an accident).
