Named the world’s Most Efficient Small Car by What Car? in 2014, the second-generation Citroen C3 combines stylish lines with good road performance and low emissions. It’s also renowned for offering exceptional field of vision, the advertising slogan reading “The Visiospace”. With the second-generation C3 remaining in production until 2015, the technology used in the halogen headlights of this model is however more than 10 years old today.
Factory fitted options included a H7/H1 halogen headlight made by Visteon, and, as of 2014, an LED headlight.
The halogen headlight features a H7 reflector, producing an average light beam. In many cases, its light output has been further compromised as bulb heat and general ageing cause the reflective layer to peel off.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Citroen C3 is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7/H1 halogen 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 Citroen C3 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 Citroen C3 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
