Choosing the right Audi headlight
Shopping for a replacement Audi headlight is pretty straightforward. There are just a few things that you have to keep in mind:
First, find out the configuration of your car’s headlights. They can either be sealed beams or capsules. Typically, the former is found on vehicles manufactured 10 years ago or more, like the Audi 4000. Headlights with this configuration are located right in front of the vehicle.

Second, you should also consider the year, make, and model of your vehicle. These details ensure you’ll be getting the best match when shopping for the part that you need such as an Audi A4 headlight bulb replacement, for instance.
