Introduced in 2014, the third generation Mini Cooper F56 retained the iconic design but accommodated more space for occupants and luggage, making for a stylish as well as practical car. The range was offered with five entirely new engines matched with 6-speed manual, automatic or sports-automatic gearbox for unbeatable driving pleasure. With the Mini F56 still in production, the halogen lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options include H4 halogen and LED.
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 Mini Cooper F55 F56 F57 is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H4 halogen or LED 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 Mini Cooper F55 F56 F57 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 Mini Cooper F55 F56 F57 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
