    The standard xenon's are a direct fit, you just need to use vagcom to tell the car it has them.

    You cant adjust the height using vagcom (even if you can?) as you dont have the module that controls the height installed. The module also wouldn't work right without the leveling motors installed either. There will be the normal adjustment screws, hopefully you can get enough adjustment off of those. I guess you could line car up against a wall and mark off where the lights line up to including the break off point and then when you fit new ones make sure they line up up/down & left right.
