RS6 headlight bulbs

Post by Toady1 » Fri Nov 30, 2018 4:10 pm

I'm looking to upgrade my pretty poor headlights. I've done some searching on here and found EM Tuning aka Trups, but nothing on here shows anything he's done on the c6 rs6. I've not got my manual with me so asking here to hopefully get some answers as I'm not 100% sure I've found the answer online. Sutodoc llist D2S and D3S....

Do we have D2S or D3S bulbs?

I've found these after some googling to apparently be the best upgraded bulb. These are the D2S version.

Also to replace the bulbs is it a bumper off and headlight out task?

Thanks.

He does an improved headlamp conversion IanH had it done. Contact Trups directly for the info.

My review of Trups Quad-Headlight conversion - viewtopic.php?f=47&t=120057 - long story short, absolutely amazing but can be pricey however that shouldn't put you off, they are phenomenal!

Thanks for the replies, yes during my search I did come across your thread Ian, but I was hoping for a more simple bulb swap solution for now.

Pcorpe - did you go for just bulb upgrade? If so, can you remember what the bulbs were? actually now I'm home I can check my manual! ha ha! tut!

When I bought the car first thing I did was to replace the bulbs. I opted for Osram Xenarcs Cool Blue, 5.5K.

Much better than std ones (at 4.3K)... but I must stress out that RS's headlights (or lenses) are not the best out there. Super complex - I get that, but I think that they should've done better job considering the status, price tag etc. that RS's have.

Interim solution - bulb replacement (for minor improvement and mainly aesthetics if that matters to you)
Longer term - Trups is your man.

Hope that helps.

I think the problem is that although the bulbs do dim over time, the lenses in the rs6 are also not clear and appear to suffer from condensation which dries out and leaves a cloudy lens which doesn't help. The best way around it is to fit new clear projector lens and new bulbs from morimoto. I'm guessing this is what Trups does.

I have a set of Trups headlights in my RS6 - definitely recommend him/them - he also rebuilt my headlights - wires had frayed - probably due to the heat/humidity here in Hong Kong, replaced the drl's which had failed and fitted sequential indicators which work well and aren't to gimmicky unlike some of the latest Audi's (in my opinion).
