E-Code Headlight Upgrade Kit for Eurovan

Detailed Description

It's no secret that U.S. spec Eurovans came with significantly worse headlights than their European counterparts. Now you can upgrade your headlights to Euro-spec ones by simply bolting on new lamps and splicing on new 3-wire sockets in place of your existing ones. Complete kit includes both E-code headlamps, two German made 55/60 watt H4 bulbs, and two splice-on sockets with wiring diagram... for less than the price of single replacement Eurovan headlight.

LED-Ready. These headlights accept all LED H4 bulbs, but we're including high-output Halogen bulbs instead. Why? Because retrofit LED's (for vehicles not factory-equipped with LED headlamps) aren't quite ready for prime time yet. There's a reason why the major bulb suppliers (such as Hella and Sylvania/Osram) are not offering them yet, but off-brand Chinese companies are. The beam pattern tends to be irregular (either blinding oncoming traffic, or not illuminating the road evenly), and reliability, QC, and lifespan are inconsistent. (Also they don't generate heat so they're poorly suited for cold weather; they won't melt snow that hits your headlights.) At this time we are not recommending switching to LED, but when that time comes all you have to do is plug in LED bulbs in place of the included halogen ones, it's that simple. By the time the included German H4 bulbs burn out it may be time to go LED, but if not, replacement halogen bulbs are only $8 a pair and are a huge improvement over what you're using now.

Disclaimer: E-code (European) spec headlights exceed all European and Canadian standards for street use, and are widely considered superior to U.S. headlights. Unfortunately the U.S. DOT never adopted the European standard (nor did they set their own), leaving a hole in the regulations. As a result, all H4's (even E-code ones) must be designated as "for offroad use only" if sold in the U.S. Compliance with local laws is the buyer's responsibility.
