Here are some photos of how mine was build, just in case it could help. Sorry for the quality, but I discovered this post before installing them.

Ballast are inside the housing (below the low-casewhere the original ballast sits).
Then, on the outside there are the canbus cancellers, and on my case the resistor for the high beam. You could skip this with some canbus ballast, and high beam bulb (as the OP here did, and I am planning to do) so there would be instead nothing on outside.





Re-pined to match Halogen pinout.

Thanks for this guide. I have a few quick questions in preparation of my doing this later this summer:

1) Will this work on adaptive headlights (AHL)? Or will it only work on non-adaptive?

2) Similarly, since there is no coding, does it matter if I get a Euro-spec bi-xenon headlight set that technically is intended for "right-hand" driving?

3) Can you point me to a good quality can-bus canceller?

OP and me did that on AHL headlights, but obviously the adaptative function won't work anymore. It will work like normal xenons.

If you het RHD headlight, light beam pattern will be slighty different... I wouldn't recommend RHD headlights for LHD countries

Thanks! Didn't think about beam pattern, and was just focused on the re-coding issue. I'll have to find a LHD set then.

Are you running the rear blacklines? Know of any compatibility issues with the ones that are supposedly plug and play regardless of whether you run halogens or xenon up front?
