    AFL lights

    Just a quick query. If I bought AFL headlamps would they be a straight swap for standard headlights?

    no, you'd need to have them activated via Tech 2.

    I don't think it's quite as simple as buying AFL headlights

    Adaptive Forward Lighting (AFL).
    improves lighting in curves (curve lighting) on vehicles with Bi-Xenon headlight system.

    The Xenon light beam pivots based on steering wheel position and speed (from approx. 6 mph (10 km/h)).
    The headlights shine at an angle of up to 15° to the right or left of the direction of travel.

    think u will need to have the steering wheel sensors fitted aswell. to be honest ur best bet is a nice set of white lights (£15) rather than the price and frustration of it possibily not working.

    I was wondering, does any1 make an adaption unit for the standard non AFL headlight unit so i can install Xenons with a proper 'legal' lens thing??
