    Facelift Xenons to prefacelift halogen

    Hi, just had a quick search and couldnt find any definate answers

    just wondering if facelift oem Xenons have the ballasts etc as part of the light, also will they fit onto a prefacelift with only the plug swap as per the usual facelift lamp upgrade?

    do i need anything else


    cheers

    Are you trying to fit facelift xenon ballasts and igniters into your pre-facelift lamps?

    If so, it's not worth it. The facelift xenon ballasts are integrated into the facelift headlights so would be very difficult to fit to pre-facelift lamps. Would suggest you either:

    a) Buy a decent set of aftermarket HID's (50-55w 4300-6000k)
    b) Buy some facelift lights. You can get a new pair of Valeo halogen lamps for about 110.

    Yeah just as thunder says.

    Look up what xenon lamps d2s or what kind it can be, and then u buy a HID xenon kit and fit it to the new headlights (may I suggest getting some xenon headlights, expensive but way worth it as I did it myself)

    I recently fitted OEM facelift xenons to my S4. I only had one oem ballast and couldn't find a matching one for love nor money.

    Ended up selling the OEM ballast and just fitting some aftermarket HID's. I got ones with the large ballasts and attached one to the ABS bracket and the other to the airbox. I also had to cover the holes underneath the lamps where the ballasts should fit to seal them.

    I paid a fortune from a breakers for some facelift plugs, but turns out you can get them fairly reasonably from a dealership.
