The Ford Galaxy MKII was built on a concept backed by both Ford, VW and SEAT, who all sold their own versions of the finished creation. And it’s easy to see why these brands put their trust in this design concept. Featuring a spacious cabin with flexible seating as well as great driving economy, the Galaxy has gained popularity among families, outdoors enthusiasts and taxi companies alike. With the MKII remaining in production 2000-2006, the lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7/H1 halogen and D2S/H7 xenon headlights made by AL.
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.
Single-xenon setups feature a 2.5-inch projector, designed in the late 90s, which produce a poor light output. Furthermore, these projectors are known to lose their reflective layer, even to the point where they become black inside.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Ford Galaxy MKII is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7/H1 halogen and D2S/H7 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 Ford Galaxy MKII 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 Ford Galaxy MKII will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
