Xenon Swap for 2.5L

I am looking into getting OEM xenons. Of course I will need the housings, bulbs, and ballasts. I know I will need some kind of adapter to work with the stock halogen setup, is this adapter the same for the GTI and Golf? Also would I have to swap the CECM in the Golf to get these to work? Any info would be appreciared.

PS: I am aware there are many threads on this topic but most focus on the GTI, I want meake sure there no difference when it comes to the Golf.

Thumbs down

IMHO I've test driven a few GTIs and they are very good dont get me wrong, but aren't quite as good as I would have expected, especially when comparing to other cars I have had experience with, so considering the Price they normally sell for new or even Used, they weren't even on my wish list, I could spend on other things for the car. BUT then again Im old and not a cafe racer.
