The first Ibiza generation developed and produced wholly by the Volkswagen Group, the 6K pre-facelift is a major contributor to the fact that the Ibiza is Seat’s best-selling car. It was launched in 1993, won the Spanish Car Of The Year Award in 1994 and remained in production right through until 1998. The lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H1 or H4 halogen headlights, both made by Valeo.
The halogen version 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 Seat Ibiza 6K is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H1 or H4 halogen 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 Seat Ibiza 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 Seat Ibiza will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
