Built on the Volkswagen MQB platform, the Seat Leon 5F has a lot in common with cars such as Audi A3 Mk3 and Volkswagen Golf Mk7. The 5F achieved a 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating, with special rewards for its Multi Collision Brake System and Lane Assist System. Launched in 2012, it remains in production at time of writing. The lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7 halogen and LED headlights.
The halogen version features an H7 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 Seat Leon 5F is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7 halogen or LED 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 Seat Leon 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 Seat Leon will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
