    Hi I have recently done this mod to my car using RS4 headlights.

    you will need Kufatec halogen to bi xenon headlight loom, this can be purchashed from kufatec website.

    then you will need the correct headlight module for them to work. Bez will be the best person to ask as he supplied mine.

    then you will be able to code them properly to use the bi xenon and daytime running lights properly.

    they will work without the module and coding but may flicker and you wont have daytime running lights

    in all it cost me £380 for the complete mod but was well worth it.

    No thats not needed, its the module below the steering wheel that controls headlights and other various body electrics.

    they should be listed under the car model as I bought them a few weeks ago for mine. Took a while to arrive tho.
    i'll have a look on there site.

    Yes I looked there but seems not to be listed will keep looking as they may have just sold out when you say about 380 was that for the lights adapters and module?

    Great thread! The xenon conversion is next on my list of mods to do.

    SinghB7 £380 is a great price. I'm guessing this didnt include the auto-levelers?

    For led number plate lights, buy these as they are 100% error free...I bought these on the recommendation of others here and they are the dogs you-know-what:
    http://bit.ly/1fCbu71

    i don't think there's any error-free DRL led bulbs around for the xenon housing, I've tried a few which all said "error free" but they all gave DIS warnings. Only solution is to use resistors. But I gave up in the end and just leave my DRLs off all the time.

    no thats a completely different unit.
    Its the central convenience module you need to change and it must be from an A4/S4
    its the module ending in the letter N you need
    if you message Bez he will sort you out with one.

    The original one was a M that wouldnt accept the xenon coding.
    the one you supplied me was a N and was fine.

    Might just need coding then with vagcom. Bez will know more then me tho.
