    you cannot use that switch, the facelift switches don't work on prefacelift cars... If you fit that what you will find is that the headlights will come on and you cannot turn them off

    As for the adapters... If you buy the prefacelift adapter (for cars made from 2004-2008) from kufatec then it will have 2 wired per side to connect (4 wires in total)
    if you buy the adapters from eBay for the same car it will have 1 wire on each side (total if 2 wires)

    this is because kufatec for some reason don't adapter the wire in the harness to go from the old high beam to the drl where as the eBay cable does. This is also why the instructions in the kufatec cable will say that you may have to disconnect a wire in the cem and connect the new wire from the adapter. In the end they both work the same and perfectly fine, I have installed maybe 15 xenon retrofits now with these adapters without any issues.

    Just curious to know why the company making these adaptors wouldn't make use of the extra wires that are in the plug rather then making you wire then into the ccm like I have 3 wires in my plug doing nothing now bet soon enough there will be a adapter that you just plug in and code simple rather then having to run cables into the car anyhow here goes nothing..
