Hey guys,

quick question before I paid for a replacement housing. I have an 01 a4 with aftermarket hid's but the original headlights were valeo halogen. Will a xenon oem valeo housing fit or work with my setup and will the cutoff be different than my non xenon passenger side headlight housing? i want them to match. externally they do look identical from what i can tell. thanks.

They will focus differently. The HID housing will be better than the halogen housing since it's projector has been tuned to the unique way the HID bulb produces light.
