Default A4 B6 Ebay Headlights w/ DRL's?? Opinions

02 05 Audi A4 S4 Clear Projector Headlights w Daytime LED Running Lights Lamps | eBay

Does anyone have any personal experience on how these look in person? I am thinking of try out a set just to see how the DRL's look. I currently have aftermarket HID's (55W, 5000K) installed in my factory housing. Does anyone think those would cause issues (melting, fogging) once installed in the Ebay ones? Thanks for any input!

By cutoff, are you talking about the beam pattern?

im talking about the projector beam patterm. Yes. Normally the cutoff is very harsh and causes oncoming drivers to be blinded. Best bet is to spend on ecodes or get some oem hid capsule.

i have a 2000 a4 with these cheap clear ebay projectors that the guy who had it before me put on ..my brother says if i put HID in them something will melt so i am saving up for the ecodes. that would be my reccomendation and it will look nicer. Im stuck doing all this maintainaince just trying to get it running smooth since the guy before me took minimal care of it : /

it wont melt the housing unless its the 55watt kit. U can run a 35 watt and be fine. U can probably even run the 55 watt kit. ITs the fogs that will melt with a 55watt kit.
