I really would like to improve the lights and would appreciate any experience and suggestions others might have. I have seen some modern "digital" possibilities but are they any good? Thanks. Very Happy

On my 2.0 16v coupe i fitted an uprated dip headlamp loom with relays to my H4 headlamps. This increased the voltage at the bulb with noticible improvements to the light on the road. I am also using Osram nightbreaker H4 bulbs which give 100% improvement over standard. My reflectors are starting to look tarnished (21 years old) so an order to Audi Tradition will be my next improvement. Hope this helps.

I never considered the possibility, sounds interesting. The only problem is i "don't do electrics" and the talent on the island I live on is limited. What do you think about the Halogen units, there seems to be a number of different types on E-bay?

I just had a look at the Osram Nightbreaker on Ebay. They sound like a good alternative when it comes to illumination, living in the countryside I drive on unlit roads and that can get scary when your more likely to meet an animal than human.

One other possibility is the Projector Headlight. These seem to take into consideration the problems I have encountered. Does anybody have experience with them?
Thanks.
