    Hi all,

    As the title says, this is the one thing that my car is missing that I would like. I have factory fit Xenon headlights (Main beam only!) with auto level/headlight washer etc. but would like the Bi-Xenon units off a later 8P2 A3 (Main beam and full beam!)

    Can it be done? Is it a straight swap and what do I need?

    Cheers,
    Joe

    Can be done, but new headlights use a 14 pin connector now not 10, wiring will need changing to suit, you can get adapters, but needs coding & potentially a CE module upgrade, you need it done, give me a shout.

    Module 09, long coding, Byte 21 drop down box displaying bixenon as an option to code, if you dont have byte 21 then cant be done properly.

    NHN, with regards to the central Electronics module upgrade, I've tried to find it on ETKA but seems all i can find is what looks like a canbus Gateway? ive upgraded these before on golf assuming this is the same part or am i clutching at straws?
