    I know, but the threads always tend to wander, and never answer what you want.

    Vehicle : Audi A6 S-Line 3Ltr D

    Trim : S-Line

    Engine : 3.0D

    Year : 2012

    Mileage : 65000

    Smile

    When I installed mine at first one did not work so fitted the cancellers to both lights which seemed to cure the problem. Then a couple of times one still occasionally did not come on but after a quick Tech 2 session with Plasma (telling the cars computer that HID's are fitted) I have had no problems since and I now have the best lights I've ever had on a car.....

    I used vaux-com to program the headlight check system out of the UEC. This works better than the cancellers and is more reliable.

    I have 50w 4300k in the dipped beam and 80w Halfords Rally halogens in the mains. Brilliant lights.

    I just wish there was a way of programming the sidelight check system out

    Mmm I see what you mean about wandering, OK I suggest getting the ones from HID direct and the cancellor's and if you do or don't need them you will be covered

    Not too bad this time. I work door to door and during darkness switch off the car leaving the sidelights on. Does anyone have problems with them coming back on after restarting.

    Fitted mine a while ago and had no problems, no cancellers needed or anything. One ballast went when water leaked into it but was eventually replaced and been fine ever since. Just get them and give them a go
