Thumbs down

look alrite!

years ago in France all headlights were Yellow, and by law if you went from the UK in your car to france you had to paint your headlights with lense paint yellow...

now over here in the Uk the big thing is XEON (HID)

i got some Xeon gas filled bulbs for my fog lights and there wicked compared to the standard ones...

to be honest im not a fan of the yellow lights.. (that may just be a UK thing!

and also from a mate to a mate..... i know its law for you guys over there but i dont like/ not a fan of the Orange signal lights on all the time either!!

However the pics do look good with the Yellow fogs, its makes stand out from the crowd!


What do other memebers think?? any one from other countries who agree or disagree??

Cheers!!!

Personally I prefer the bright white look.
Rick T what make are the fog light bulbs you got and are they easy to fit ?
The trouble with yellow lights is that somebody might think you are French. Not good

The ones i got where some Xeon gas bulbs off Ebay,,,

At the moment i cant remeber the model code for the type of bulb but i will have a look for you,..

I paid around £10 from Hong Kong... (the Asia market are a lot cheaper and also in Japan by law they are allowed a brighter bulb which also dont run any hotter.. easy to fitt... just need to remove the cover off the fog lights.. easy if you have a pit or enjoy laying under you car!


Allwheelgrip .. in regards to selling my headlights.... mine are for for a right hand drive not like your left!! .. and also it does get dark here you know!!
I have read before the US guys have been buying the Europe Headlights, (the rest of Europe are Left hand drive apart from us in the UK) as they do look better!!

I know this is a very old post but I am new to the forum and couldn't find another thread that addressed this. Searched wrong key words? Dunno. Anyway, I noticed that your Audi (if you still have it) has the foglights on with just the parking lights on. My B6 has a switch that acts like it should turn on the foglights when you pull it out but it only works when twisted to the headlights. On parking lights only, it pulls out but nothing turns on. When having it serviced, they told me that nothing was wrong, that parking lights+foglights is illegal. Not so - my domestic truck does it. Is my switch bad or do the B6s come that way?
