At the time of its launch in 2001, the Fiat Stilo was only the second car in the world to employ TRW Column-Drive Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPS), and the optional push-button start joined Fiat with the likes of Mercedes and BMW in progressive automobile innovation. The Fiat Stilo remained in production until 2007. But the lighting technology used in the majority of these cars is more than 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7/H1 halogen and D2R/H1 single-xenon headlight.
The halogen version features a small reflector that producing an average to poor 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.
The single-xenon setup features a a small reflector, designed in the late 90s. These reflectors are known to lose their reflective layer right to the point where they become black inside, causing dangerously low light output.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Fiat Stilo is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7/H1 halogen or D2R/H1 single-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 Fiat Stilo 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 Stilo will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
