The first Porsche with four doors, the Cayenne 955 added everyday practicality to the trademark luxury and performance car qualities of this iconic brand. It also offers impressive power and torque along with plenty of space for all kinds of cargo: perfect for anyone with an active life. Whilst the 955 9PA remained in production until 2010, the lighting technology used in these vehicles is however more than 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7/H7 halogen and D1S/H7 bi-xenon headlights, manufactured by Valeo and by Hella.
The halogen version features an H7 projector 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.
Bi-xenon setups of the facelift model feature the well-known 3-inch Hella E55 projector, designed in the late 90s. These projectors 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 Porsche 955 9PA is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7/H7 halogen and D1S/H7 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 Porsche 955 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 Porsche 955 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
