    Xenons from Germany? Can they be converted to UK?

    Hi guys

    Yet another quick question (I hope). Does anyone know if Xenons (real ones) can be converted if bought from say Germany???

    I know that headlamp washers will also need to be installed but just unsure about converting the lights themselves. I'd love Xenons on my A3, something i really miss about my Mini Cooper.

    Any help would be great guys

    Cheers

    No, they can only be changed to a flat bottom. I have the same problem for when I export my car to Germany. I cannot get my xenons changed to German beam pattern so I have to fit German lights, not xenons though.

    Thanks for that, that would have been 500/600 wasted .
