Btw, I went to Honda today and check for the S2000 xenon bulbs. They will fit

our car cause they are D2S bulbs. And I also went to Audi and they also use D2S bulbs for the 2002 A4. Because the Honda doesn't have one in stock, so I didn't have a chance to see which brand is that. But the Audi ones are the same for BMW, they are the Osram bulbs. So, I think is the projector that is causing the blue pattern.

so u r saying that even if i get audi bulbs i will still have that yellowish color due to the bi-xenon projector???

but that dont make sense to me cuz if u put 6000k bulbs on even with bi-xenon lense the color is still very blue.....

is it possbile that maybe audi has a orsma bulb that is like 4800k or 5000k..... cuz i knwo ours is 4300k...

I believe the 3 series stocks ones are philips. I took out both my bulb and they were philips. Had them replaced because the color was off and my new ones are philips too!

I heard the the osram is bluer than the philips.

The s2k ones would be sweet! So would the audis.

No no, I mean if the Audi or S2K's xenon bulbs are 4300k, then it will be the porjector lens' problem. But if Audi or S2k has 4XXXK or greater, then is worth the try. However, they are not cheap. I got a quote for around Cdn$300/bulb. So, I would rather get 6000K bulbs because I can get them for $600 including taxes

Which audi dealer did you went to? Please name it, cause then I can go harass the Richmond Audi and ask them to lower the price. I can get those 6000K bulbs locally and is in Cdn.
