The A6 C7 continued Audi’s time-honoured craftmanship in refined luxury executive cars, offering a quiet and comfortable ride as well as excellent handling characteristics. Built on the same platform as the A7, it has been widely heralded as the best-looking A6 ever made, and the pre-facelift version remained in production right up to 2014. The lighting technology used in this car is more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7/H15 halogen and D3S Bi-xenon headlights, both manufactured by Hella.
The halogen version features a H7 reflector, which 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 the well-known 3-inch Hella E55 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 Audi A6 C7 is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7/H15 halogen or D3S 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 Audi A6 C7 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 Audi A6 C7 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
