    So you want to put the original bulbs in the new xenon lights? Im sure that could be done, just a case of mounting the bulbs correctly, possibly changing the reflectors out for you old ones.

    or if you mean your worried about actually wiring hids in, a hid kit comes with all the wiring needed to attatch to your existing lighting loom.

    im relatively new to xenon stuff, ive been fixing my girlfriends light recently, so what im saying is based on limited experience.

    Yeh a tad confusing.
    Do your new lights come with the wires? If not youl need the necessary loom. Which a hid KIT should provide.

    Lets hope someone can give you some definite advice

    I don't know how the facelift lights come, but on pre facelift S3's, the Xenon ballast is part of the headlamp. I guess if you buy a xenon kit, it should just be plug and play onto the facelift lamps, so long as you take the correct feeds/wiring from the previous setup.

    I did this recently, just bought a H1? HID kit to fit the main beam of the A3 facelift lamps and connected it all up to my pre face s3 wiring and all is good in the world. MOT wasnt a problem either...If i can find the box I'll pm you the details
