Featuring clean lines, quality finish and a spacious cabin, the Tiguan 5N is popular with busy suburban families and interstate tourers alike. It’s a comfortable ride on the highway, yet nimble and easy to handle around city streets. With the Tiguan being the best-selling SUV in Europe, the 5N remained in production between 2007 and 2018. The lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7/H7 or H7/H15 halogen and D1S/D1S or D3S/D3S xenon headlights made by Hella.
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.
Bi-xenon setups feature a 3.0-inch projector designed in the late 90s, which is known to lose its reflective layer right to the point where it becomes black inside, causing dangerously low light output.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Volkswagen Tiguan 5N is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7/H7 or H7/H15 halogen and D1S/D1S or D3S/D3S 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 Volkswagen Tiguan 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 Volkswagen Tiguan will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
