Hi,

Just bought a 57 plate a3 s-line, looking to either get HID bulbs in the standard headlights or possibly buy a new projector lamp set off ebay?

Anyone done this before/have any pics?

Cheers

Use the search function for help, there has been lots of discussions on it.

Upshot is buy the proper headlights as a lot of aftermarket kits will burn out your wiper motor control module & the beam pattern could be off as the halogen lights dont have the defusers that xenon lights require. This is the legal requirements aside - ie headlight washers & self leveling system.
 
I agree, get oem xenon headlights not aftermarket crap.
 
are the originals hard to get hold of? how much do they generally go for on average?
 
i have one adaptive with a set of ballasts make me an offer, all you would need is another adaptive housing

its just lying around as surplus due to my facelift conversion
 
There are 3 types:

xenon, bi-xenon & adaptive bi-xenon (they follow the steering direction). The latter 2 may require a different central electronics module to support those lights. IIIR they range from about £350 up depending on type & demand.

stay well clear of aftermarket hid's they can burn out your wipers as said i had it happen to me it cost the best part of £350 to fix so dont do it , i would look for some oem headlights
