The third generation Ford Mondeo Mk IV or Mk 4 was sold from 2007 until 2014. It’s a solid car, winning numerous international awards, including the best estate and family car and a lot of positive reviews in the car media. But despite it isn’t that old and al the positive reviews, the lighting technology used in this model is over 15 years old and is surpassed by new and more powerful technology. Luckily, there are upgrade kits available that will improve the light output considerably, making for safer and more enjoyable driving.
Ford Mondeo Mk IV bi-xenon headlight
The main problem is the used Visteon D1S projector. This projector isn’t the worst used in the car industry, but the inside of the reflector bowl deteriorates and gets dull. The reflective layer won’t reflect anymore and light output will decrease fast. A lot of times first the bulbs are changed (please don’t be this person after reading this information 😊), but this won’t help much, because the reflector bowl just won’t reflect the light anymore.
Although it’s not a bad idea to change the bulbs because they can lose up to 70% of their output, the best thing to replace is the bi-xenon projector and when the bulbs are old, some new bulbs like the Osram CBN are also a good investment. So our advise is to first buy new projectors, and when the bulbs are a bit old, also some new bulbs like the Osram CBN.
The Mondeo Mk IV kit uses the Aharon TL-r bi-xenon projector, which is a solid performer and the bi-xenon function keeps working. Besides this, you can keep using the original D1S bulbs and ballasts.
The kit includes the bi-xenon projectors (2) and the necessary brackets and hardware (nuts/bolts etc.). The projector needs to be modified but we can do this for you by selecting the modification service.

The projectors can be mounted from the rear of the headlight. Because of the small space and components it can be a bit fiddly, but with a bit of patience it's very doable. Here you can find the installation video;

Other lighting upgrades
LED parking/city light
We honestly hate it so see nice xenon headlights with yellow halogen city lights. So to complete thet looks and save some energy, invest in some LED bulbs to match the xenon.
LED turning signals
A really cool upgrade are LED turn signals. √ - You don't have a orange glow on the front when the turn signals are off. √ - Because they are LED they are on/off and don't fade on and off like halogen bulbs. √ - Very bright so traffic will notice your turn signal better to improve safety.
!! Now you are all set to upgrade your light and impress the world !!
