    If you want the Audi units you will need to do a facelift conversion of you're wanting the units with the led drl's

    If you're looking the normal non facelift xenons they will fit but you need headlight washers and self levellers for the suspension.

    It's a sticky funnily enough - http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/showthread.php?t=121130

    So, does your car have the same bumper as that shown in #4, particularly with regard to the headlamp washer cover plates ?

    As you have done the conversion it should fit, did you get the new light brackets though?

    yes since you are doing the facelift it doesnt matter about the 2009 part... you need to get the wiring for your year car as its going to connect to the CE module in your car which is not a 2009 version
