Cibie E-Code H4 Headlights - PAIR

Detailed Description

These genuine Cibie E-Code headlights meet strict European standards and are direct bolt-on replacements for your stock 7" sealed-beam bulbs; just pop them in and you're ready to go.  We offer both these and the Hella E-codes linked below. The Hellas are cheaper ($79/pair) and in our opinion are comparable. But there are Hella fans and Cibie fans, just like there are Coke fans and Pepsi fans, so we offer both and you can have your choice.

Bulbs: Cibie doesn't include bulbs, but we've obtained a half price deal on them. Click here to order quality German H4 60/55w bulbs for just $3.95 each. These bulbs work with the stock wiring and plug; no modifications required. (If you have a pre-'67 6-volt Bug or Bus, order these 6 volt versions instead.)

Optional High-Output Bulbs: We also offer higher-output 55/100 watt and 90/100 watt bulbs, although they may require the use of relays due to their higher current draw.

LED-Ready.  These headlights accept all H4 LED bulbs, but we don't sell those bulbs and are recommending 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 halogen bulbs burn out it may be time to go LED, but if not, replacements are only $8 a pair and are a huge improvement over what you're using now. 

Disclaimer: These E-code spec headlights exceed all European and Canadian standards for street use, and are widely considered superior to U.S. spec 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.
