Renowned for its stylish Italian lines and luxurious appearance, the Alfa Romeo 166 facelift remained in production between 2003 and 2005. The lighting technology used in this executive car is however more than 20 years old today.
Its factory-fitted standard is a D1S/HB3 bi-xenon headlight by Valeo, featuring one of the worst projector designs ever made. The bi-xenon setups features a 3.0-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 Alfa Romeo 166 Facelift is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with D1S/HB3 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 Alfa Romeo 166 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 Alfa Romeo 166 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
