Winning the coveted Car of the Year Japan Award at its launch, this sixth generation of the Civic took Honda to an entirely new level. It retained the Honda build quality and style from previous models but added performance and refinement that have made this a favourite with car enthusiasts right around the world. Whilst the EM/EJ/EK versions remained in production between 1996 and 2000, the lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H4/H4 halogen headlight made by Koito.
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 ageing cause the reflective layer to peel off.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Honda Civic EM/EJ/EK is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H4/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 Honda Civic EM/EJ/EK 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 Honda Civic EM/EJ/EK will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
