    HI,HOPE SOMEONE CAN HELP,i have bought a 2006 a3 s line with most of the front parts missing ,have got most bits but having major probs with headlamps. The car should have xenons at 800 quid each,but i have bought some 2nd hand ,only just noticed the plug connections are different to the plugs on my car ie pins are in different positions was told if i get the right plugs,they should work ok.Have got right plugs to fit lamps but all by 2 wires they are all different colours.so dont know which to which.I would be happy to put std halogen lights on but would they work.any ideas Thanks Tim

    its not a simple case of swapping halogens in, the wires would normally match for normal xenons but it sounds like the car might have had bi-xenons hence the different wiring. You would also need to recode the car to tell it that i doent have xenons too. Where are you located?

    mmm, isnt there a good Audi breaker in Donnie? might be easier just to buy a pair of bi's. Check ebay too, think you can get a pair for £450+del
