How Much Improvement Will This Kit Make? See actual "before and after" pics on this independent review (poorly translated from the French, but the pics speak for themselves). Or this review on the Vanagon Mailing List: "Wow! I actually have headlights like a modern motor vehicle. High beams, low beams, both are nice and bright. Whoever said this was a great upgrade was absolutely right. Add me to the list of people who found this the best $99 I've spent in while."
- Two German Bosch European spec H4 headlights (the highest rated on the market for Bus and Vanagon use - see this independent review)
- Two high quality German 90/100 watt H4 bulbs (roughly twice as bright as your stock bulbs)
- Two Headlight relays with wiring harnesses and fuses
- Simple, fully illustrated instructions.
Disclaimer: Although H4 headlights are commonplace on cars and trucks in Europe and Canada, when sold in the U.S. they must be designated as "for motorcycle or offroad use only" because the U.S. DOT does not recognize H4's for car use. Unlike most H4's the Bosch's are actually DOT approved and labeled, but the approval mark applies to motorcycles. Compliance with local laws is the buyer's responsibility.
