    Do a search using OEM Xenons and you will find quite a bit of information already in this forum.

    would depend on the xenon type tbh, the adapter you show is for the Bixenon adaptive, good luck finding them on ebay or cheap, the single vision xenons are plugnplay if you have halogen already & require coding

    Why do people get so legally moral regarding the washers, IMO ive had two vag cars with them fitted and they are pants just squirting foamed up detergent on to the glass which then drys on causing far worse refraction.

    I dont think its completely a moral issue, some newer members just plainly dont know that they are required and they run the risk of a potential CU20. TBH, I'm sure you right in the real world effectiveness of them.

    You need either someone with VCDS to code for you or buy it yourself or when I get RT to answer me & help on pricing buy the cable from me for the software.

    Dont even bother about led ones, thats whole new front end cause different shape.

    But you can get 04-08 bixenons & also bixenon adaptives, requires more wiring for the both & knowledge does help along with some technical skills
