exactly.

OEM FTW. Shortly after I bought my HID's I found a set of E-Codes w/ ballasts and bulbs for $400, NIB. I would have gone that route had I waited.

If only you had snagged them and swapped your hid kit into the highs or fogs with 3kk bulbs. Embrace the light.

Yea, I wish I could do a few things differently with the car already. I'll just have to make up for lost time in the spring. ... or should I say coilovers. Stock sport suspension will not allow me to out run that damn Mini.

I had a similar set in my first A4 (I learned since then). I kept popping H1's b/c the housings apparently can't handle 80W low beams and 100W high beams. Too much heat me thinks.

I think that the black headlights and stuff make the front end look like a Lincoln LS

+1 Depos - would rather have done Valeo but I didnt like the idea of cutting my fender. Just get them for as cheap as you can find em

I got a pair of depots for my 97'. Best thing I ever spent money on for my car.
