One of the most notable things about these cars, the eighth and ninth generations of the legendary Honda Civic, is how many of them are still around – and how great condition many of them are still in. The build quality is nothing short of outstanding, and the maintenance costs among the lowest you’ll find. Whilst these generations Honda Civic remained in production between 2005 and 2015, the lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included H7/H1 halogen headlight made by Koito.
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.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Honda Civic 8th +9th gen is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H7/H1 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 Honda Civic 8th +9th gen 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 Honda Civic 8th +9th gen will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
