Hmmm Alfa GT 1.9 JTD - Conversion to genuine Xenon headlights?

Has anybody tried to replace the GT standard headlamp lenses/unit with genuine Alfa Xenon headlamps? Is it as straightforward as plug & play?

not sure that it is, certainly different on a 166 if that is a guide as the wiring was different and the body computer was different. And you would need the levelling sensors and ECU. All in all easier to but an aftermarket HID kit.

wiring will be different as the dipped beam plugs into the ballast under the light which then powers the igniter/ bulb, could be made to work if you have the know how i guess.

I am breaking a GT with factory xenons if you're interested in parts.

I could sell headlights with the plugs from the wiring loom if it helps, as well as the level sensors from the suspension etc.

Pud, how much would you ask for all the parts needed?
Im not looking to do it right now so not competing with you, Jack
Would be a nice upgrade when other things are sorted though. If it doesn't require a gazillion man hours to retrofit that is

Just fixed and cleaned the xenon on my GT, you can have a look at the topic to get a sense of the connection and parts inside. ([how-to] replace Xenon headlight leveling motor)
