    Bi-Xenon conversion - Not A4 though

    We have a A6 estate, but I don't use the A6 forum much. So I thought I'd show you lads.
    The headlights were dreadful. Totally pointless.
    So I bought a set of E46 Bosch Bi-xenons to fit.
    The projectors turned up from Germany in their LHD state.

    I test fitted the DS2's expecting to have to make up a fitting. But they fitted and locked in perfectly.

    So off comes the lens and you can see the flap.


    Currently in LHD
    Now in RHD

    and the flaps being tested on a 9v battery. Video below.


    The old unit in place

    The new one.

    Atlas Grey A4 2.5 TDI Quattro Sport.
    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.

    I bought Bosch E46 units. You can find them on Turkish ebay quite cheap.
    You have to bend the tabs for the pivot 180degrees to make them opposite fitment.

    I think the A4 might be a 2.5" projector so you might want a smaller one than the E46 or carve out the housing.
    You're more than welcome to ask anything you want.

    this is interesting, how would you wire the xenon flash up? when low beam is on and you flash the flap will drop, but what when the low beam is off? you will flash the flap will drop but the light?

    At the moment, it's just wired straight into the full beam connection into the existing H7's.
    You keep the original full beam, so it has twin full beam.
    If you flash your full beam with low beam off, they drop and you get a flash from the standard bulbs.
    But I plan to put in a relay so the flap only drops when low beam is on.
