A development of the 406, which took home the coveted UK award Car Of The Year, the Peugeot 407 was released in 2004. It scored 5 and 4 stars in the Euro NCAP safety ratings for adult and child occupants respectively and subsequently remained in production until 2010. The lighting technology used in this model is however more than 20 years old today.
Factory-fitted options included all-halogen and single-xenon headlights.
The halogen headlight features an H1 projector 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.
The single-xenon setup features a 2.5-inch projector, designed in the late 90s. These projectors are known to lose their reflective layer right to the point where they become black inside, causing dangerously low light output.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Peugeot 407 is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H1/H7 halogen or D1S/H7 single-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 Peugeot 407 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 Peugeot 407 will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
