September 2, 2015: Osram has developed and produced the LEDriving Xenarc headlight, its first full retrofit headlight. The front lighting on the Audi A4 is equipped with a combination of xenon and LED technologies. Osram is the only manufacturer so far to offer the option of a legal upgrade to xenon light without the need for costly reconstruction of the front of the vehicle.
LEDriving Xenarc is suitable for the Audi A4 B7 manufactured between 2004 and 2008. The light output from the new LEDriving Xenarc headlight is much higher than that of the halogen headlight originally fitted by the manufacturer. Compared with standard halogen lamps, modern Xenarc technology from Osram provides up to 110 percent more light on the road, ensuring that drivers can see and be seen much better. The light beam from the retrofit headlight is up to 60 meters longer and has up to 40 percent whiter light that is more uniform and more energy-efficient than that of standard halogen headlights. In addition, the Xenarc headlight offers daytime running light based on LEDs.
?With its Night Breaker and Silverstar lamps ? Osram has long provided retrofit products that boost the performance of headlights?, said Hans-Joachim Schwabe, CEO Specialty Lighting at Osram. ?With this simple Xenon upgrade we are opening up an entirely new product category.?
With compact dimensions of 53 x 51 x 19 cm (L x W x H), the halogen headlights on the Audi A4 type B7 (2004 to 2008) can be easily upgraded with the new xenon retrofit headlights from Osram ? and without any great effort. There is no need to install an automatic beam adjustment system or headlight cleaning system as the new headlights are supplied with the xenon lamp D8 with 25 W which requires neither of these systems. LEDriving Xenarc headlights is available from dealers now. They come with a two-year guarantee.
