2012 Volvo S60 T5: How Much for Xenon Headlights?

February 08, 2012


OK, our S60 doesn't need xenon headlights. The standard halogens are fine from a lighting standpoint. But having xenons would help support the premium feel of the rest of the car. It just doesn't quite seem like a luxury sedan with that yellowish halogen illumination. (FYI: The illumination in the photo looks a lot better than it does in person.)

Getting (adaptive) xenons for the T5 is surprisingly affordable -- MSRP is $800. After the jump I've listed some other entry-luxury sedans and how much it'll cost you got get xenons on them.

Acura TSX: Standard

Audi A4: $1,100 (Style package)

BMW 328i (2011): $900 (individual option)

Cadillac CTS: $2,065 (Touring package)

Infiniti G25 Sedan: Standard

Lexus IS250: $3,340 (Navigation with additional options)

Lincoln MKZ: $5,695 (Ultimate package)

Mercedes-Benz C250: $1,290 (Lighting package)
