The Skoda Fabia 5J facelift is built on the Volkswagen A04 platform, and as such has a lot in common with cars like Audi A2 and Volkswagen Polo Mk4. Launched in 2010, it introduced new turbocharged engines with much better fuel economy, and it remained in production until 2014. But the lighting technology used in these cars is more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7 bi-halogen and H4 halogen headlights, both made by Hella. These feature 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.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Skoda Fabia 5J Facelift is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7 bi-halogen 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 Skoda Fabia 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 Skoda Fabia will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
