    Xenon Headlamp Replacment MK5

    Hi there. Does anyone no if I could buy a non-direction XENON headlamp and fit it to my Astra H SRI? Will this work? I dont want to use the HID kits, want factory parts.

    Any advice?

    I'm not sure what you mean?

    Xenons tend to be the name give to HIDs. You can't get factory HIDs that aren't directional (IE turn with the steering wheel).

    So unless you can explain what you mean more clearly I think you're probably stuck with what you've got.

    Xenon

    Sorry, I thought HID was the aftermarket kits. What I meant is can I buy he VXR Xenon headlamp and fit it to my vehicle. Will this work? I dont want the directional stuff linked to the steering that will have to be wired im sure?

    I don't see any reason why you couldn't, but in the UK (I know you're in SA) you would have to link the AFL stuff up to have the self-levelling and washers working to remain legal.

    You would have to get the parts, then you'd need a friendly garage with a Tech2 to enable them on the CANBUS I'm sure.
