The Skoda Fabia 6Y is built on the Volkswagen A04 platform, and as such has a lot in common with cars like Audi A2 and Volkswagen Polo Mk4. In fact, the only parts that aren’t made by VW are the MPI engines. Launched in 1999, the Fabia 6Y won UK magazine What Car?’s Car of the Year award in 2000 and remained in production right through to 2007. The lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7/H3 halogen and D2S/H7 single-xenon 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.
The single-xenon setup features a 2.5-inch 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 Skoda Fabia 6Y is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7/H3 halogen or D2S/H7 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 Skoda Fabia 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 Skoda Fabia will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
