Designed by Donato Coco, the Citroën C1 was unveiled at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show and later voted Britain’s Most Reliable Supermini by prominent consumer review organisation Which Car?. It remained in production between 2005 and 2014. The lighting technology used in this model is however more than 10 years old today, with the only factory-fitted option being an H4-based halogen headlight.
The factory-fitted halogen headlight features 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 Citroen C1 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 Citroen C1 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 Citroen C1 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
