    Xenon Lights Retrofit into 8p2 A3

    basically i want to retrofit xenons into my car,

    what is a procedure?

    i know a different connector will be required i have found one that goes between the standard loom and xenon headlight for £40.

    Obviously i will need the headlights, i have found a set but the passenger light has a crack, can the outer cover be replaced??

    Also will they need to be coded?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hussayn

    bi-xenons need to be wired and coded, the wire you found is probably the right one.

    Headlight washers and Levelling also if you want it done properly. NHN is the main for the retrofit.

    Don't worry too much about the levelling and washers, both massive wastes of time and money IMO. Had a Porsche Panamera following me on the motorway - the lights were pretty blinding, extremely bright, brighter than the norm for HID, it was almost as if the level was too high. What I'm saying is properly aligned a3 OEM xenons are fine and that even with genuine factory fitment does not guarantee non-dazzling lights.

    Fair play mate, the only issue i really see is come MOT time it will cause a problem which is something i don't really want
