    The only lights I would look to put on are standard facelift lights if you've not got them already.

    you need the wiring plugs too, as they're different.

    Just get the plugs from the breakers, but you can buy them if your stuck.

    bad-vw-boy: You can fit one of those crappy HID conversion kits to them i guess, but i'd see that as a bit of a downgrade to be honest...

    in what way it is a downgrade? Besides that it should have self levelling and washers to be legal.
    Still loads of people with B6 go with HID's thru MOT without a problem. And please don't tell me that visibility isn't better...

    BTW. I don't have HID's any more. But have different reason for that.

    You could also wire the existing loom directly into the wiring inside the headlight, bypassing the plug on the rear. Would require drilling a hole in the plastic cover on the rear and would be a PITA to remove the headlights, though.

    I got mine from eBay for a fiver - bargain. You may be able to buy them from Audi. I got a pair for my foglights on my Golf direct from VW and they only cost about a tenner for both.

    they only check for headlight aim, not whether they are HIDs. we have been down this road before, to be 100% legal they need to have automatic adjustment and have washer jets to keep them clean due to the intensity of the light.

    I have HID's as well, much nicer.
    to remove you need a 6 point bit (8mm?) two on top front and one on a extension down through the wing at the outside edge.
    becareful not too but the mount at the lower front inside edge.

    i notice on these Halo black aftermarket lights it says "no HID" has people still fitted them? guess its due to them being plastic and not glass??? and if the lights were on for a long time would damage the headlight unnit?

    facelift lights are plastic anyway and HID's urn cooler than Halogens so that can't be it

    well i have aftermarket halos on my Bora and they are plastic with HID kit fitted while im thinking about it,so seems strange as i thought HID kits were for these projector type headlights anyway

    you say they run cooler? but on my Bora they do seem hot to touch,maybe no hotter than std headlights though

    Aragorn,there's a guy from Germany selling adaptor harnesses on eBay so you don't have to do any cutting/soldering to fit facelift lights to nonfacelift cars.£50 a pop mind! Wouldn't mind the part number for the nonfacelift sockets as I've already got a set of facelift plugs.
