    As the title says can I swap the headlights I currently have (2004 Xenon headlights fitted OEM) to 2006+ Bi-Xenons? Do I need to change the control module or anything or is it a simple change of coding with VCDS.

    TIA

    You will need to swap your plugs to 14 pin & rewire also, not a simple coding change, I did it properly with the plugs & repair wires as fedup with **** adapters & adds more clutter to your car.

    What's the rough price of the wires and plugs? So it's just a re-wire and thats it?

    Cheers,

    I guess you have to add the extra wires to the car, where do they go?

    No Bi-Xenons have high and low beam Xenon where as Xenon is low beam xenon only with high beam halogen.

    Annoying, I have it but it's not working the person I bought it from on eBay isnt that helpful either, it has no option in the language box just some squares instead of letters.

    Need to get it sorted. Apart from the wiring loom change is there any module or sensor change?
