    swapping 8p2 bi-xenons to 8p3 bi- xenons

    as title says really am thinking of doing the 8p3 s3 facelift to my car i know what parts i need but was just wondering how much work is needed to get the led xenons to work, at the minute i have factory fit bi-xenons with drl is it a case of plug and play and a bit of coding or does it involve a little more than that thanks,

    With yours its already being factory bi xenon it should be plug and play with coding, but then there's a chance that you will need a new module if yours isn't a K and you will then need to jig a few wires about which isnt that hard. The hard part is knowing what goes where...

    Essentially though if your onboard power module aka central electric module is a K then it should be smooth sailing from what I know... NHN is your man here...

    Sweet mate
    Do you need to get the bits sprayed or are they Ibis white already?

    I'll be after LED Bi-Xenons for mine, just wondering what CE module mine has, where abouts is it located so I can see the part number?

    yes the K rev will code fine, you may need to re-wire your headlight connector as i know that there are a couple of versions of the adapters. only thing with your setup is that the adapters are made for standard halogen headlight connectors where as yours are bi-xenons.
    you could always just do a test fit and code the car to see if it works?

    no the switch should be fine, i am talking about the actual connector that plugs into the back of the headlights.
    coding i think its CE 09 - long coding helper - byte 21 - set to 06 Bixenon with LED DRL.

    as long as its wired properly and coded correctly there should be no errors on the DIS. Not too sure on the mirror indicators, do a search for 'dumbo mirrors' and you should find a thread that has the details you need.

    ok mate thanks well i can confirm that if you do have factory fit bi-xenons with K module the led drl's will work with just a bit of coding as i tried mine today and worked fine and never had any errors on the DIS too. so thats a relief and hope this helps for anyone in the future

    so it was a direct plug in and coding? no wiring needed or adapters from the standard bi-xenon to LED bi-xenon?

    Nope no need for any wiring or nothin just plug and play with coding that's it. Saved me a bit of work, not starting the conversion yet buy just plugged them in to try. So straight swap from bi-xenon to drl led bio-xenon. Will do a thread when I start.
