    Default Retro fitting AFL & Washers after HID kit installation.

    Any idea how much it'll cost to do this?

    Headlight washers are fairly simple, there's a how2 guide for it. Even if you make it simpler by just tapping into the winscreen wash pipework...

    AFL would require new headlights, sensors and christ knows what else... Having AFL in my current car, I'd say it wasn't worth the hassle to be honest, it's a fancy gizmo that doesn't really accomplish much...

    theres a thread on here about a plug in adaptor that will give you afl via the front gof lamps - similar to the mercedes system

    the unit plugs in via the obds but is about 100quid it also gives you a few other tpys as well

    jet's,
    jet housing's, (+ painting)
    all high pressure joint's,
    high pressure pump,
    and all the clip's etc..

    I think the cheaper option would be just getting my headlights checked

    I never got round to activating mine via Tech2 on my old car, but having the headlamp washers there (even if nothing came out of them...) probably made it look less suspicious with the HID kit than if they weren't there...
