    You'll need something like this -

    KUFATEC GmbH & Co. KG - Adapter Xenon-Scheinwerfer Audi A4 8K 36229

    and to do the job properly, this -

    KUFATEC GmbH & Co. KG - aLWR Komplett-Set Audi A4 8K Bi-Xenon/ adaptive light 36989

    I would suggest there will be some VCDS coding to be done as well.

    The motors are in the headlamps but it needs the 'sensors' on the chassis to tell the controller the dynamics of the chassis and then subsequently adjust their height.
