Default Replacing H7 Headlight Bulbs


Can anybody give me some help on how to replace my headlights. I have a 2002 A4 Quattro and am replacing all 4 of my headlight bulbs with HID's. I did this on my 2000 BMW 328 very easily, but Audi isn't quite as friendly on the install.

If anyone can give me a quick walk through on how to replace the bulbs I would appreciate it.

Thank,

Matt

What do you mean exactly. Are you just replacing them with xenon look alike bulbs??

Yep, the Xenon lookalikes that I have been using in my BMW for the past 2 years or so have worked great. And I paid less then $10 per pair.

Lets just pretend I need to replace a standard Halogen bulb.

Thanks

Matt

You must remove the headlights in order to do that. There are 3 or so screws on each light in order to remove.

Please don't call them xenon or HID as they are positively NOT real. It's like telling everyone you just got a new rolex when it's a folex.

Double M,
What type of xenon bulbs did you buy? I'm in the market for some replacement bulbs that have an HID look to them.
