    Here is a guide to Changing Bi-Xenon headlights for European Driving on a A3 (8P) using VAG-COM. These instructions have now had a second section added on how to change the Adaptive Xenon headlights as well. These use a different Channel to the normal Bi-Xenon headlights.

    Change Bi-Xenons for European Driving


    I've just looked in Elsawin and it looks like a 2005 8P with Xenons should have a lever in the headlights to change them for continental use. Here is a link to the Elaswin page which may help:

    change xenons for continental use

    If your particular headlights do not have this lever then it may well be a visit to the dealer to have them changed on their diagnostic kit.

    Ok here goes, after months of deciding I took the plunge and went for the conversion. Originally I had the split grill on my A3 - at the time of buying it was at the top end of my budget so was the best I could get. Leather interior was on the priority. My first purchase was the ABT front conversion panel, then I fitted an ABT lower spolier - I loved the look of this but still wanted the single grill so took the plunge.

    Basically I went from this

    to this

    Please can you make any comments on the above thread and keep this thread tidy.
