Facelifting my mk3 with adaptive xenons 😎

Recommended Posts

So this has been a slow burner as I struggled for information, the physical part of the conversion was pretty straightforward but keeping with factory xenons was quite the challenge! Fortunately with the help of a chap called grimbo from the Russian forums I managed to achieve this and here is the end result! It compliments the sync 3 and facelift steering wheel upgrade I did earlier 👍🏻

hi.  i have a 62 plate titanium x with the factory fitted xenons.  id like youre opinion on youre upgrade.  are they better than the original halogens when nighttime driving.  the reason i ask is that i dont actually find them particularly gud.  they dont seem to throw the beam far enough for fast night driving.

I had factory original xenons before this and I always found them pretty decent. A bulb upgrade is always a good idea however I imagine yours are the visteon made ones, these suffered badly with the chrome on the plastic xenon bowl burning and becoming much less effective. If you look on the Russian forums this issue is covered quite a lot, they take the bowl from the new focus headlights as these are made of metal and don’t suffer the same issues, the difference is literally night and day 😂
