    Can some one give me some advice please, I have a A4 2006 with Bi-xenon headlights or so the code states in the front of my manual, what I'm wanting to do is swop my headlights with an up to date pair, as seen on Audis now, the ones with the in built LED DRL strip in.

    my main questions are

    1) can I just by a pair and straight swop
    2) do I have to make any adjustments to the wiring harness or electrics as I don't have much of a clue
    3) I have seen headlights on Ebay that say they are compatible and it's just a straight swop, is this the case
    4) besides my Headlight switch I have a little switch which says DRL if I did change would this then work the LED DRL lights separately
    5) if I did swop would I still have Bi-Xenons because I quite like them
    6) if not Bi-Xenons are HID conversion kits the way forward

    Sorry if that was question overload but I would like advice and opinions, I am also looking at changing the rears, but I think they are a simple change

    Thank you

    you can only fit aftermarkets with the led strips

    just keep the Bi-xenon there a lot better

    Apart from compatibility with the systems, the shape is different, as Bez advises, stick with current.
