Hi all
Hope this is the right place

I wanted to replace standard halogen lamp with a led strip and xenon lamp. I found them on eBay now will it be about just swapping the whole lamp unit with the new one or is there during involved or something. Because in my mind simply swap standard halogen housing with new led xenon housing.
Thanks

Not that simple I'm afraid, you need different coding of the lights, lamp washers, different windscreen and cameras, possibly a different wiring harness too but don't quote me on the last one.

Not forgetting self levelling which requires a new light switch.

And the lamps have to be self leveling.

Wasn't sure if it was built into the light on the 205 LED setup Alistair but you could be right
