Are you experiencing poor light output? If you’re like most people who turn to Retrofitlab for help, you own a great car, like an Audi, Mercedes or BMW, with not-so-great headlights. The light output has gone downhill to the point where driving in the dark is no longer enjoyable. Not to say: it’s become outright dangerous. This usually has little to do with the bulbs; in 99% of cases, the poor light output is due to the reflective surfaces inside the projector having been eroded and burned off by UV radiation, heat build-up and pollutants. And when the reflective surfaces no longer reflect, well, then not even the brightest bulb on the planet is going to be of much use.
Eroded reflective surface:
The options. In this situation, you have two choices:
- You can go to the car brand dealership, who will only sell you complete headlights. Doing so would guarantee two things: you would pay a lot of money for parts that you don’t need and you would receive a projector of the very same type that landed you in this pickle in the first place (the infamous Hella E55).
- You can keep your headlight and the vast majority of your money and simply swap the faulty part: the projector. Doing so is easy; with many headlights, all you have to do is turn some nuts at the rear of the assembly. Also, apart from saving a bucket-load of money, you will enjoy light output that is literally streets ahead of what you’re used to. The Aharon EvoX-R 2.0 is in fact nearly seven (7) times more powerful than old Hella E55!
The bright choice. A product of years of research and development, the premium Aharon EvoX-R 2.0 retrofit kit ticks all the boxes: bi-xenon functionality (both low- and high-beam xenon), superior light output, superior durability and simple installation.
Retrofitlab.com exclusive options
- We have the EvoX-r 2.0 in DOT and ECE light pattern versions.
- We have the EvoX-r 2.0 in RHD/LHT for in the UK/Japan/Australia
Needless to say, each kit includes projectors for both headlights, and you’ll enjoy a comprehensive two-year warranty (to be compared to the limited warranties you’ll see elsewhere).
Here’s why the Aharon EvoX-R 2.0 is a really bright choice:
Superior light output
The Aharon EvoX-R 2.0 is a staggering 668% brighter than old Hella E55, the world’s most common OEM xenon projector! Check out the comparison pictures to see for yourself.
Thanks to the incredible brightness, the super-wide beam of the Aharon isn’t just some faint glow at its extreme ends; you’ll have plenty of light on the dark sides of the road.
The beam pattern provides a perfect balance between the very low DOT and the very high ECE steps, ensuring clear vision without distracting other traffic.
A world apart from EvoX-R 1.0
EvoX-R 1.0 became hugely popular thanks to its spectacular power, but this second generation blows it right out the water, being more than 77% brighter! We should mention, though, that the EvoX-R 2.0 lens holder is just a couple of mm shorter, so you get a tiny gap behind the shroud (we dare anyone to discover this when the headlights are on).
Perfectly positioned hotspot
The EvoX-R 2.0 puts the hotspot right below the cut-off line, enabling you to detect hazards at maximum distance.
Reliable low & high beams
A durable push-pull solenoid ensures that you won’t ever be stuck in either low or high beam, and that’s a very good thing, because the high beam of the EvoX-R 2.0 really is exceptionally powerful. Not to blind anyone, you’ll want to flick back to low beam long before you pass oncoming traffic.
Maximum heat dissipation
A lightweight alloy bowl dissipates heat efficiently, protecting the reflective surface from deterioration.
Full-metal lens holder
A full-metal holder keeps the crystal-clear 3” glass lens securely in place no matter how bumpy the road gets.
Wide choice of bulbs
Your EvoX-R 2.0 accepts a wide range of bulbs – everything from D1S through D2S, D3S and D4S right through to H7 (minor mods required for H7). No compromising on bulb quality or power.
Based on years of R&D, the EvoX-R 2.0 was designed for super-easy replacement of Hella E55. Once the headlight is open, you can place and connect it in minutes, without the need for any special tools.
AFS-compatible with mods
The EvoX-R 2.0 is compatible with AFS (cornering function) headlights but requires some modifications to the mounting points. Novice retrofitters of AFS headlights are recommended to instead purchase the original EvoX-R 1.0, which is a perfect match to AFS headlights straight out of the box (the 1.0 can only hold D2S bulbs).
Optional D2S extension cables
In case you’re going for a D2S setup, you can avoid having to tinker with a DIY solution by adding a pair of D2S extension cables to your order. These cables make for absolutely effortless wiring. Plug and play.
