Default Aftermarket h.i.d kit a3 (8p)

standard headlights are fitted to my a3 sport.
I want fit aftermarket xenons.....i was told on the a3 you can end up burning your wipermotors?
Anyone know why?

If i fit relays will this stop the motors from burning out?

anyone fitted aftermarket xenons please let me know how they look in standard lights and on the road etc.

I am using aftermarket projection headlamps by FK (FK angel eyes) . I disconnected the AngelEyes, and modded it with hiflux LEDs (TT-S style)
The HID kit is from VVME (good but could be better)- im using 6000kelvin rated HID bulbs.
I dont have problems with my wiper motors (had these HID for almost a year)- as a matter of fact, it;s been raining here in socal and have been using my wipers and HIDs constantly.

I beleive only certain KITs affects the wipermotor- but not sure on that.

Canyon shots (mind you the camera is sensitive to light hence it looks awfully bright, the output is close to OEM, only slightly white/bluish because of the 6000k bulbs, OEM is 4300k)

Here's the typical ''european" right side light throw (incline up so it lights up the side of the road and signs)
