Volkswagen Up is the small city car that has won the very biggest awards, including Small Car of the Year (2011), World Car of the Year (2012), Compact Car of the Year (2012) and City Car of the Year (2013). Featuring Volkswagen’s trademark high build quality, it offers a surprisingly spacious interior and very enjoyable driving. However, even though the Volkswagen Up is still in production, the lighting technology used in these cars is over 15 years old today.
Factory-fitted option included H4 halogen headlight.
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 Volkswagen Up is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with 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 Volkswagen Up 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 Up will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
