Default New guy here w/ a 2014 Q5

So far i had VagCom the basic stuff (which was a lot easier than i thought, money well spent on the cable), Hardwire my Escort radar.

i had just got my front windows tinted to match rear, and clear bra earlier today. so have to let it cure a few days...

i got a set of interior led replacement bulbs gonna be going in tomorrow

And coming to me is 6000k D3s bulbs and Hoen Xenon match fogs. Gloss black caliper paint.

later down the road I'm going to have a set of 20's or 21's, RS honey comb grill, a front bumper lip if those are ever available.

I have received my 6000K Flash White Philips Ultinon D3s Bulbs

definitely a step up for me vs factory yellowish hue

I like this color from my old car and decided to get the same version of this vs the more expensive Philip Xtreme Vision

got mine from here shipped super fast

Bulb Difference from OEM

i know i should take some comparison shoots but when i install it was 2:30pm i didn't want to wait till dark so i just did the other side as well... install was super easy less than 30mins (does not need to take air filter out)

I will get more pics once i get my car clean and my Fog lights in this week

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...
