    Default Headlights

    Is it me or are the headlights on the C4 (1996) not bright enough. Maybe it is the car being so low to the ground but it seems they dont throw enough light. High beams are fine though!

    Anyone have the same experience?

    Anyone use aftermarket headlights? What ones, how do they work, ect...

    Thanks

    I have wondered about this subject too but hadn't taken the time to research it. I have heard radio commercials for a couple of lighting options but I trust the folks here at CAC to give us the real scoop on what works or not.

    Ye, I had the sme problem on my 96' & 95'. Go to Ecklers and buy the Hi-Intensity Plastic housing ones.DO NOT put the std. all glass ones on or you'll strip your motor gears out.

    these are supposed to be as bright as you can get.. inexpensive too. i saw a red 87 with the black ones and it looked really good, have ordered some for my black 84 can't wait to see em.

    Interesting! Thanks for the link!

    Im not too big for the projector headlight look, unless the car came stock with it. Maybe these will look nice though?

    Anyone else have better headlights than stock?

    Also, thats a good tip about the heavy glass headlights! Thanks!
