    HELP needed as i dont have a clue sorry.

    hi

    i have an 2005 audi a3 3.2 quattro s line, i firstly got the front end conversion done to the new 2009 model with the normal halogen headlights. i now have purchased some s3 led bi xenon headlights however after buyin them was told they are from germany however they are genuine and are from the dealership. i now need to know how i go about doing this as i have been told if i fit them my wiper motor will burn out. from what i gather i need to just get the kufatec adapter and then recode them and also sort out the levelling as they are from germany..... is that correct???


    plz help im totaly lost

    thank you very much for your help in advance :)

    First of all your headlights will be LHD. You want UK headlights and if I were you, I wouldn't use Kufatec, I'd use someone like NHN to wire them in correctly. He's done lots of work on my car and I highly recommend him.

    you cannot get them adapted, not to pass MOT anyway, you need uk housings, as for the kufatec loom i wouldnt bother, get nigel to sort you out, you will still need a new ce unit and a new headlight level unit
