Combining city looks and comforts with genuine off-road capability, the Landrover Freelander has been the choice of serious explorers and touring families alike. It won Top Gear's coveted SUV Of The Year award, with the lead editor commenting on how the test car traversed 2,000km of some of the toughest and most dangerous roads in the world without a hitch. It remained in production between 2006 and 2014. But the lighting technology used in this car is however more than 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7 / H7 halogen and D1S bi-xenon headlights, manufactured by Visteon and Hella.
The halogen version features a H7 / 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 aging cause the reflective layer to peel off.
Bi-xenon setups also feature a 3-inch projector, this one 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 Land Rover Freelander LR2 is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7 / H7 halogen or D1S 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 Land Rover Freelander LR2 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 Land Rover Freelander LR2 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
