Known for their stylish Italian lines, sports cars Alfa Romeo Brera and Alfa Romeo Spider have won several international awards, including Best of Show, Most Fascinating Car and Most Beautiful Car in the World. They remained in production 2005-2010 and 2006-2010 respectively. The lighting technology used in both models is however more than 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7/H1 halogen and D2S/H1 bi-xenon headlights made by Automotive Lighting.
The halogen version features a 3-inch H7 projector, producing an average light beam. In many cases, its light output has been further compromised as bulb heat and general ageing cause the reflective layer to peel off.
The bi-xenon setup 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 Brera + Spider is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7/H1 halogen or D2S/H1 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 Alfa Romeo Brera + Spider 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 Brera + Spider will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
