On Car and Driver Magazine’s Top Ten list no less than ten years, the successful Honda Prelude concept was originally launched over 23 years ago. This model, the fifth generation Honda Prelude (BB5-BB9), remained in production between 1997 and 2001. But the lighting technology used in these cars is more than 20 years old today.
The factory-fitted halogen headlight features an H1 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 Prelude is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with 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 Honda Prelude 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 Prelude will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
