    I was wondering if anyone knows how i can go about installing bi-xenon headlights on my audi a3 2007 Sline.
    I have brought the bi-xenon headlights but there is a problem.
    The standard halegon headlight loom which is already in the car has 9 pins but the bi-xenon headlight requires a loom which has 11 pins. So the loom on the car doesnt fit the bi-xenon headlights.
    Has anyone converted standard halegon headlights to bi-xenon headlight and if so how they went about doing this?

    Many Thanks

    I'm sure this quite a tricky task but hopefully someone will be able to offer more info.

    they arent plug and play even with an adater loom (youll get it from kufatec) you will need a rewire central convenience module light module and levelling sensors to get it all to work, then add the optional washer jets into the mix

    Isn't the connector between standard xenon and halogen the same? I thought it was only the Bi-xenon/ASF that needed the adaptor (plus a lot more too)

    Thaks PLUVES1, but that link is for a kit from halogen to bi-xenon.. whereas the headlights i have are xenon, and KHUFU the standard connector for halogen has 9 pins and doesn't fit the xenon. the xenon headlight requires a 10/11 pin adaptor

    The part number for the xenon headlight i have is: 8P0 941 003 AA

    AA rev are bi-xenon, thats why you need adaptors. You will also need at least a rev 8P0 907 279 K central electics module to code the car to accept bi-xenons. Sorry, your gonna have fun getting them to work.

    Dont need one, same 10 pin connector if its standard single vision xenons.

    Yeap, 10 pin for halogen/xenon 14 pin for bixenon/adaptive

    Sorry you're wrong mate, as above & as Ewan has advised AA iirc are bixenon.

    F revision central electrics iirc is 23 byte, so is the lowest version needed for the proper coding of bixenons or you'll have issues guaranteed.
