[A4] HID/Xenon conversion

Here's what I know on B5 cars:
1. It's not plug and play, you'll need add relays and do some re-wiring work, but nothing too crazy. Do a search on the forums and in the technical sections on AW, I'm you'll find tons of info.
2. Auto leveling system requires level sensors located on the struts at each corner of the car. Retro-fitting the entire system will need those plus the necessary harnesses, very difficult and not worth your while. As long as you aim them correctly you should be fine. And honestly I can't see then work at all when I had my '01.5 A4 that had the xenon headlight option.
3. Many online vendors sell xenon ecodes, the previous owner of my car bought them, not sure what he paid, but look around for the best deals.
Hope this helps!
'01.5 S4 - stock NA-spec halogen housings -> Euro-spec xenon housings with 4300K HID kit
'90 CoupeQ - crappy stock headlights
