Originally unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2007, the Audi A4 B8 quickly went on to win the prestigious Golden Steering Award. It's widely known for trademark build quality, excellent handling and strong safety ratings. Whilst it remained in production between 2008 and 2016, the lighting technology in this car is however more than 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7 / H7 halogen and D3S / D3S Bi-xenon headlights.
The halogen version features a H7 reflector, which produces an average light beam even when new. In many cases, its light output has been further compromised as bulb heat and general aging cause the reflective layer to peel off.
Bi-xenon setups feature a 3.0-inch projector designed in the late 90s, which is known to lose its reflective layer right to the point where it becomes black inside, causing dangerously low light output.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Audi A4 B8 is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7 / H7 halogen and D3S / D3S Bi-xenon headlights, there are upgrade kits that will fit inside your existing headlights.
These complete retrofit kits not only provide you with superior brightness and durability; they are also more affordable than average Audi A4 B8 xenon headlights with bulbs and ballasts, and since all components are brand new, they come with a 2-year warranty. Additional benefits over OEM headlights include Canbus-proof designs and effortless halogen-to-xenon conversions. What’s more, the levelling systems will work without any adjustments to the headlight connectors, and you can use any ballasts that you might already own to save further on xenon upgrades.
No matter which retrofit upgrade kit you pick, you will improve the light output considerably, making for safer and more enjoyable driving. And, of course, your Audi A4 B8 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
