Originally launched in 2003, the Fiat Panda was awarded European Car of the Year in 2004 and had sold more than half a million units by 2005. A Top Gear survey put the Fiat Panda in the top ten vehicles for ownership costs, craftsmanship, reliability, service and driving experience, and it has been widely used by police, military, forestry and mail services. It remained in production until 2012. The lighting technology used in this model is however more than 15 years old today.
The halogen headlight features an H4 reflector that produces an average light beam even when new. 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 Fiat Panda is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H4 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 Fiat Panda 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 Fiat Panda will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
