Launched in 1992, this first generation of the iconic Subaru Impreza ushered in an era that would see the range used extensively by police forces and rally teams around the world. The trademark power and toughness of the Impreza received praise from test panels, too, winning awards such as UK Car Magazine’s Car of the Decade and Wheels’ Car of the Year. It subsequently remained in production from 1992 right through to 2000. But the lighting technology used in these cars is well over 20 years old today.
The factory-fitted setup was an H4 halogen headlight with an H4 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 Subaru Impreza I is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H4 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 Subaru Impreza 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 Subaru Impreza will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
