    Audi a3 8p2 xenons

    Hi all

    I know this has been covered so many times .. How much can I buy a pair of used xenon headlights for my 2006 A3 s-line? I dont have the knowledge to fit bi-xenons so just prefer the easier route of getting the single xenon headlights?

    Cheers
    Kal

    Would you fit for me? what else do we need besides lights itself? Any extra parts go with them?

    Apologies for Hijacking the thread but this is my first post and thought be better to post here then start a new thread, i've used the search feature but couldn't find what i was after so apologies there
    I've just bought my first Audi A3 its a 07 1.8TFSI S line and the first mod i'm looking at doing is the Bi-xenons with Drl's
    I have no idea what parts i need but i'm willing to have a crack at doing it myself (or maybe with some help?)
    Anyway, could someone point me in the right direction please :D
    Thanks

    Ok for the Bi-xenon mod you need:

    1. check what Electronics module you already have in your car, can find this out by having the car scanned in VCDS (Vagcom). If the module is a F or K then good, if not then go shopping for a new electrics module and make sure you have a good £200 for it!

    2. get yourself some bi-xenon headlights... its about £600 from Audi direct (special price for me from my local) or on ebay (paid £330 for mine delivered) but watch out as some on ebay are not complete with ballasts and bulbs.

    3. you will need an adapter to wire in the new lights, i would recommend the Kufatec ones as its pretty straight forward. make sure you get the right one (pre-facelift and facelift versions are different)
    KUFATEC GmbH & Co. KG - Xenon/HID Curve Light - Adapter - Audi A3 8P & 8P Sport 33791

    get it all installed and wired, and finally code it all in and you should be fine!

    I've purchased a CE Module 8P0907279 K that came out of a 2007 Audi S3. Just wondering is it just the case of unpluging the old module and plugging the new one in?

    Swap old relays across, plug in & code it accordingly for car features, but if you didnt have highline board before you may experience some issues.

    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CHANGE OVER THE CE MODULE WITHOUT VCDS!

    I'm not being funny mate but if you do not know what you are doing here with the CE module then i would get someone who does know... adding a pin or 2 is nothing... replacing the whole load and getting it wrong? your in for a big load of trouble!

    I'd be happy to drive up & do it all for you, but as with all things in life there would be a cost element, as I advised on my PM reply to you mate.
