    For wiring and such, would like a bundle from ali express be enough for everything?
    I just did a quick google and found this: https://www.aliexpress.com/i/32863761278.html
    The only thing I can recognize I guess, is there seems to be a converter I think for the Halogen to Xenon.

    Thanks again.

    This looks to be more complete as it has the headlight range control unit wiring as well. Seems to be complete wiring set : https://www.aliexpress.com/i/3295478...721e1c3cEyj9eA

    You will also need a rivet nut tool and rivet nuts for the rear axle leveling sensor. There's only holes on the rear axle to which you need to install rivet nuts. Otherwise not able to attach the sensor.
    This kind of a tool : https://www.amazon.com/GESIPA-GBM10-.../dp/B000ZEDPRQ

    Alright, thank you so much for that.

    So where does all the wiring go, like what goes to what.
    I'm trying to make sheet so that I don't forget how all this is held together.
    Sorry for asking so much, but I am very grateful for the help

    Would this sensor work? Found from the same guys that sells the wiring kit: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3284...75207e94I7izbm

    The AFS master module's factory location is on the right side of the center console, under the dashboard at the same level with the radio. If you remove the glovebox, you'll gain access to it.

    In my experience purchasing and installing these Chinese harnesses in my B7, I can say that it takes some creativity to make it work. Buy short-term access to ErWin to get wiring schematics for your vehicle, so you'll be able to figure out what goes where.

    Alright I'll see if I can do that.

    Thanks for all the input I've got.
    I'm gonna let my mind brew a little bit and try and figure this out.
