    Hi,

    Does anyone have any ideas as to where I can get a driver's side xenon headlamp unit ? I've run out of ideas and am starting to think that £300 from Audi is the only way forward !


    Thanks

    S4 Xenons are darker inside I think, I'd need someone to confirm that though.

    You'll probably pick up a pair easier than a single though.

    No it's for a saloon, thanks anyway.

    S4 xenons are definitely darker inside than normal ones.

    I can't even find a pair ! The only one I was able to find was for a LHD car, anyone know if these can be adjusted for a RHD car ?

    thanks

    I think xenon lights can be swapped from right to left hand drive, but halogens can't. Please check that before taking the plunge and don't take my word for it!

    According to audi the mechanism inside the unit has seized. This means the lights won't self level and the lamp keeps blowing bulbs.
    Unfortunately it's mot time now so I'm getting desperate !

    German & Swedish do them I believe.
    On my Halogen enclosures there is a lever alongside the projector to switch them LHD or RHD...

    If you need spare Valeo Ballasts then >>here<< looks pretty good for price - cheaper than Audi.
    Can only be the Ballast or replace the D1S bulb which has the igniter attached OEM factory fit Xenons.

    Why not just fit the S4 ones offered?

    Chrome tat inside headlights looks rubbish anyway!

    S4 ones sound like a great option: aftermarket ones might not integrate with the auto-levelling properly.

    If the s4 ones are from a 2004 car will I be able to fit them to a 2001? I thought they changed them late 2002/ 2003 ?

    OK thanks for that. I'm happy with S4 lights, just need to be sure they will fit onto my 2001 saloon. Does anyone know if this is possible.

    Kite, do you have the ballasts for the lights ?

    Unless they're from a 2001/2 car, my ballasts might not fit. Will check part numbers and get back to you later

    kite. don't think the lights are a goer. I would have to buy two new ballasts to make them fit, which is going to be too much.
    Thanks anyway
