You do realize actual lumens are typically less by 6000K, right?

yes i do, all my cars hid's always been upgraded to 6k, and it's been one of those function vs aesthetic. i live in well lit area so 6k will do me just fine here.

I thought the Q5 OEM fog light is good enough... with xenon headlight...it's crazy light...

You've been going to town from the looks of it! Where did you find a RSQ5 grille for the later models? The only one I've seen is for the earlier design. Our grille is shaped differently. I'd like to do something that eliminates the "bumper bar".

Yea I hope almost done with it...(Atleast for now) It's only got 4000 miles lol
Got it on eBay for like $350 it fits pretty good just have one gripe on fit.... My bumper bar is actually painted black what u see there is my off-road led I have (I don't like it showing but it functions well)

Oem hid are only 4300k (roughly) it still have hint of yellow when shining on the road.... Yes I do know 6000k will be less bright than oem but it's not that big of a diff to me
