I'm looking into doing my headlight conversion for my B7 to modernize her look and to see better. From browsing the classified most of the OEM headlights I've seen are pitted from driving, or broken or need something and are still upwards of $600. Looking at the entire kit brand new is crazy as the headlight housings are $1300+ ballast's are $900+ and bulbs are $400 plus the need for a conversion harness... That's $3500 for nice lights. Which is absurd.
I'm willing to shell out the $ for nice brand new housings, and I've had experience with aftermarket HID kits so I don't see any reason to buy the OEM bulbs/hardware. Now with the housings and an aftermarket HID kit, the only thing I'd have to do is wire the car to Xenon via the connector in the ECM and through VCDS correct?
I'm talking about OEM Xenon housings. Not Halogen.
