    Headlights - prefacelift?

    Hi all,

    I want to replace my headlights (2 piece type main and indicator) with some Xenon ones I got off ebay but the main connection is different to my old headlights, which are a round type connection and the new ones being a rectangle type.

    What sort of connection do I need to make them work? I read on another post about these two parts, but are they what I need?

    Universal Yellow wires with crimped connectors - 000 979 133 (x4)
    Black 4 pin Plugs - 1J0 973 724 (x2).

    Cheers guys.

    Have you had a look at the sticky about headlights?

    The S3 xenons are still pretty crap compared to most xenon equipped cars I've seen though. I can't imagine how bad the standard halogens are!
