Pioneering BMW’s new Dynamic Performance Control system, the X6 E71 combines a trademark luxury ride experience with outstanding driving characteristics. The engine is quite simply a masterpiece, immediately responsive and offering flexibility throughout the rev range. Remaining in production until 2014, the lighting technology used in this car is however more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included D1S/D1S Bi-xenon headlights manufactured by Hella.
Bi-xenon setups also feature a 3.0-inch projector, this one designed in the late 90s. These projectors are known to lose their reflective layer entirely, right up to the point where they become black inside, causing dangerously low light output.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your BMW X6 E71 E72 is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with D1S 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 BMW X6 E71 E72 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 BMW X6 E71 E72 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
