    ** HELP ** Audi A3 XENON HEADLIGHT

    I was wondering if anyone knows how i can go about installing bi-xenon headlights on my audi a3 2007 Sline.
    I have brought the bi-xenon headlights but there is a problem.
    The standard halegon headlight loom which is already in the car has 9 pins but the bi-xenon headlight requires a loom which has 11 pins. So the loom on the car doesnt fit the bi-xenon headlights.
    Has anyone converted standard halegon headlights to bi-xenon headlight and if so how they went about doing this?

    Many Thanks

    they arent plug and play even with an adater loom (youll get it from kufatec) you will need a rewire central convenience module light module and levelling sensors to get it all to work, then add the optional washer jets into the mix

    I presume you got xenon headlights to fit onto your car?

    If you have then I believe you need a kit like this

    Auto-Leveling Headlights - Retrofit- Audi A3 8P/8PA/Cabrio [33790] - $488.66 : Kufatec USA, Inc., The #1 Supplier of OEM Volkswagen & Audi Retrofit Harnesses in the World


    As it says in description you also need to ensure you have headlight washers as well. According to stuff I've read this ain't an easy conversion but, I'm open to being corrected!

    Isn't the connector between standard xenon and halogen the same? I thought it was only the Bi-xenon/ASF that needed the adaptor (plus a lot more too)

    Thaks PLUVES1, but that link is for a kit from halogen to bi-xenon.. whereas the headlights i have are xenon, and KHUFU the standard connector for halogen has 9 pins and doesn't fit the xenon. the xenon headlight requires a 10/11 pin adaptor

    The part number for the xenon headlight i have is: 8P0 941 003 AA

    AA rev are bi-xenon, thats why you need adaptors. You will also need at least a rev 8P0 907 279 K central electics module to code the car to accept bi-xenons. Sorry, your gonna have fun getting them to work.

    Sorry you're wrong mate, as above & as Ewan has advised AA iirc are bixenon.

    F revision central electrics iirc is 23 byte, so is the lowest version needed for the proper coding of bixenons or you'll have issues guaranteed.
