[s-cars] Interesting read on HID conversions

I see that some folks understood my criticism of hack kits the wrong
way. No, I didn't compare them to the OEM Audi's USA-spec criminally
ineffective low beams. The only source of light that is poorer than that
is the oil torch on my patio.
The HIDs are literally day and night in comparison. After all, I myself
have installed those in both my own UrS6 and my wife's Allroad.
I am strongly advocating going the OEM route. Why bother with hack kits
where an HID light bulb is glued to the sawn-off OEM base and stuck into
the reflector that was never designed for this light source when you can
get the OEM kit: the bulb, the ballast and the reflector with lens? Ebay
is chock full of them cannibalised off wrecked cars.
