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.
