    Long time no post guys!

    I have a quick question. 8p1 xenon is damaged and needs replacing. I have sourced a replacement from an s3 but the part number has a different suffix.

    On car is 8p0 941 029AA
    New part is 8p0 941 029AB

    Will the B suffix be ok to fit? They are a lot of money to get wrong!

    Cheers

    The AB is adaptive mate, if you have the oem factory fit bixenons as per AA part number, then the levelling system will not work & errors will be shown, if its not got levelling then it will work fine.

    I have a AA here iirc, I'll check.

    Yeah its all factory fit AA. Cant find another AA anywhere so was hoping a later AB would fit! Which seems to be the s3 version

    Levelling system if not compatible with adaptive.
