I'm considering retrofitting a set of projectors into my car. The problem is I have two different projectors and I don't know what exactly they are. One came out of a 2010 or 2011 A4 and the other came out of a B6 Passat. Does anyone know what exactly they are? Which one would be the higher quality solution? Cheaper?
Both are bi-xenon projectors.
The B8 A4 projector
The Passat assembly
Obviously the Passat one is a Valeo but is there a part number for just the projector? Not sure what the Passat bulb is but the Audi projector uses a D3S.

passat use a d1s
d3 (& d4) are mercury free bulbs and require a specific ballast
however, the base is the same
2008 Passat wagon, 2.0T 6MT with mods
- 2013 Cannondale CAADX-6
- 2010 Specialized Secteur Elite
- 2009 Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29-er
Others here might have some advice on the quality/performance of the two headlights.
I only have whatever circuitry is in that housing. These both belong to my roommate but he said I could use whatever I wanted for my retrofits. Basically I'm trying to figure out if any of this stuff is worth using. I know I have shrouds laying around here somewhere, they look like E55-Rs. I don't have any ballasts handy but I could always use the ones from the Camaro since I don't really drive it much. I would still need to go out and grab everything else. Trying to do this on a tiny budget if possible.
