Winning numerous international awards, including several Car of the Year titles and efficiency prizes, the Ford Fiesta concept has been in production for over 40 years. This particular model, the Fiesta Mark VI, was launched in 2009 and remains in production at time of writing. But the lighting technology used in this model is more than 20 years old today.
The factory-fitted standards are halogen headlights: a reflector type for pre-facelift models and a projector type for facelift models (2012 or newer). Both of these setups produce an average light beam even when new, and light output has in many cases been further compromised as bulb heat and general ageing cause reflective layers to peel off.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Ford Fiesta MK6 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 Ford Fiesta MK6 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 Ford Fiesta MK6 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
