Hi guys really sorry to bother you, but i think this is the only place that can I’ve me a solid answer with regards to a xenon conversion.
I have 2006 Audi a3 tdi with halogen headlamps i also have Audi 2005 3.2 Quattro which has just been diagnosed with a stretched timing chain so i want to take off the single xenon headlamps off it before I sell it for a very low price
I have read too much contradicting information.
1. Are they plug and play in the sense will my halogen OEM harness fit straight on to the xenon’s and will everything work fine (manual headlight adjuster from inside the car), or do i really need to get one of them khauftec adapter (which i don’t think is necessary as these headlamps are not bi-xenon)
2. I have read on some threads about swapping over the motors from the halogen as it is claimed that the manual adjuster in the car will not work? Is this really necessary because then it just becomes a pain as you have to snap a few plastic tabs to get them into the xenon housing this cannot be right, I am sure you no guys know best.
3. Will the halogen headlamps I have fit straight into the car that previously had the single xenon’s, and would again be just be plug und play?
4. Lastly would the computer vag need coding on both cars, I don’t understand this concept as both the halogen and the single xenon run on a power connection of 12v so i wouldn’t understand how the computer would trip into thinking anything has changed, i can under if it was bi-xenon as the high beam function would not work due to the release not being connected to main box which you need the extra wire on the adapter for,
In the case of Single xenon to halogen or vice-versa I don’t know why this would be necessary as the current voltage is the same and (if the connections are the same) should be no issue
I just want to swap the headlight in both the cars and plus the harnesses in and want them to work with the full function, single xenon in my tdi with manual adjuster from inside the car and halogens into the 3.2 with auto levellers still working in on the halogen headlamps
sorry for banging on any information regarding the single xenon conversion would be really helpfull
i know all about headlight washers and the auto levelling system being a legal requirement which i am not too interested in as once the xenon's are on i will be keeping the headlights clean every-time i think they are dirty, in regards to the to auto levelling i wil always keep them on number 3 setting to the floor for no conflict, legality is a tricky just take Japanese imports as an example Honda s2000 from Japan have xenon's but no headlight washers yet it still passes ESVA by vosa yet they pass and there driven on the roads, in terms of levels then just keep to the lower setting and no conflict while still more light then the standard halogen
thanks you very much for reading's any help or info is much appricated NADS
