Orginally introduced back in 1975, the Polo has become a flagship range of the Volkswagen brand. This particular model, the Volkswagen Polo IV/Mk4 9N, was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motorshow in 2001, introducing semi-automatic and automatic air-conditioning as well as the new round quad headlights. True to the Polo concept, it featured high build quality and safety standards, being awarded 4/5 stars by Euro NCAP. With the Polo IV 9N remaining in production 2002-2005, the lighting technology used in these cars is however over 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted option included H7/H1 halogen headlight made by AL and Hella.
The 2005 facelift also uses an H7/H1 headlight.
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 aging cause the reflective layer to peel off.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Volkswagen Polo 9N 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 Volkswagen Polo 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 Volkswagen Polo will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
