Skoda Octavia 1U Facelift (2000-2004) Optimus NT - Xenon headlights
This Skoda Octavia 1U facelift kit contains everything you need to swap your old, blacked-out projectors for powerful new bi-xenon projectors. Using the exact same mounting points, it makes retrofitting quick and easy. And, most importantly, it will take your Octavia to the next level – just check out the test pictures! This is way beyond what the majority of OEM projectors can achieve.The Optimus is an incredibly bright bi-xenon projector, enabling you to use D2S OEM and D2H bulbs, including the most powerful options from Osram and Philips. You will literally outshine the competition. With available colour temperatures ranging from 4,300K to 6,000K, the crystal-clear 3.0-inch lens throws a wide low beam with a bright hotspot and sharp cutoff. As for the high beam? It’s like the sun.
You can use the ballasts that you’ve already got, simply leave them in place. A high beam splitter is also included, making for easy integration of the bi-xenon mechanism. Power supply is strong, steady and reliable.
Lastly, this kit provides every single part that you will need for retrofitting. In order to keep the price low, we have however assumed that you will keep your existing xenon bulbs. Depending on how old those are, you may want to also order a new set of bulbs to get the most out of your retrofitted system. Xenon bulbs do lose up to 70% of their maximum brightness over time.
This complete Skoda Octavia 1U facelift retrofit kit is inspected by our internal quality control and comes with a solid 2-year warranty. It also includes highly rated technical support from your lighting experts at Retrofitlab.com

This is an advanced retrofit, but it does not require any special skills or experience. Novice retrofitters will simply need more time to finish. Discounting removal and replacement of the headlights, you could expect the job to take anything from three to seven hours.
Installation requires for the Skoda Octavia 1U facelift headlights to be opened, which is somewhat challenging due to the type of permanent sealing used. You might have to do multiple runs of heating and prying. On the other hand, once the headlights are open, installation of the new projectors, bulbs and ballasts is very straightforward.
