I know nothing about lighting. Can anyone give me the low-down on these? I have a car with a bad headlight module (2004 A4 1.8T), and the cheapest I can get it is for $200. Is a module the same as a ballast? Seeing as how kits are $150, would this be the smarter route in comparison to buying a new module? How easy is it to install these kits. Also, I want something that won't blind people but a nice blue color (to match my car) would be nice.
I went with Sonic Tuning...
In the Audi forums there are more detailed discussions about the best temperature lighting to get, good luck
If your bulb is burnt out try the new OSRAM XENARC 66240 SVS bulbs. Other option for a tinge more blue is the OSRAM XENARC 66144 CBI.
OSRAM XENARC 66240 SVS
- 4200k color
- ~4200lu @35W
OSRAM XENARC 66144 CBI
- 5000k color
- ~3800lu @35W
If your ballast is malfunctioning get a brand new OEM one, then get these bulbs. Don't screw around with cheap crap, it will just not last or perform
I have DDM tuning 5000k 55W in my stock projectors and couldn't be happier. Light output from the HIDs is about 1000 times better than my stock lights and I've only been flashed maybe twice in a few years.
As far as aftermarket reliability, one bulb burned out after a couple years but at $70 for the whole kit I just bought a new kit.

I've had hids on a car since about 15 years ago. Ive tried Many brands and found vvme to be the best, it's the only kit that has bulbs last over 4 years on a daily driver.
Make sure any kit you choose has an AC ballast. Most people like the blue color of 5000k or 6000k bulbs, I tend to like 4300k (it's more white)
