    Halogen to Bi-xenon headlights question.

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hey guys so i read phils diy on the retrofit but i'm a little confussed. I have halogens and will get my xenons tomorrow on the mail yay haha very happy. So it looks like i need a connector to plug into the xenons. Also the yellow wire running through the gromet is for high beam enable. I don't care about that at the moment is that necessary to run my low beams? I know i have to code then via vag-com i have access to it so all i need is the connector and plug and play?

    Yes you need the adapter harness. You're new xenon housings will have a different connector

    Not sure what would happen if you didn't connect the yellow high beam wires, but the kufatec harnesses come with the wire already attached so why not just hook it up

    Yeah the xenon's won't fit with the stock halogen connector without the kufatec, iirc. You checked eBay I assume?

    Can't you leave your halogens installed until you get the harness? That's what I did, and used the downtime to install clear corners, chrome bulbs and Joey mod

    I suppose that's possible if you're gonna repin your connector. But I'm sure you'll still need to purchase a separate wire to Run into the cabin for the high beam. Seems a lot of extra work when there's that simple adapter already repinned and spliced for wherever the high beam wire needs to go between the two adapters plus into the cabin. Plus if you out halogens back now you have to repin all over again.

    I Don't care about high beams at the moment i can always do that at a later day. all i care about at the moment is having my low beams function.

    You can run whatever you want as long as you have the hardware to support it. Wiring looms is just that, wires.
