XTR HID Headlight Kits
HID headlights are great if you want to enjoy your drive at night and want to improve safety as well. HID headlights offer many advantages that make them a better option than halogen lights. You can upgrade to HID with the best quality products from Xenon Depot. As a driver, you may be wondering whether it is a good idea to convert your halogen headlight bulbs to Xenon HID. The short answer is, yes. HID headlights offer numerous benefits over halogen bulbs. They are brighter, last longer, give more variety in color options, are easier to upgrade to and offer a much safer driving experience. HID headlights are also similar in price to halogen bulbs and there really is no reason not to upgrade. Indeed, many car owners who have used HID lights previously switch to HID lights as soon as they can. Although LED lights are often compared to HID lights in terms of efficiency, there is simply no comparison when it comes to brightness. HID headlights are hands down the best option for car owners who want maximum lighting power.
Why Are HID Headlights Popular?
High Intensity Discharge (HID) lights were first introduced commercially during the early nineties when BMW installed them in their top end vehicles. These lights offered a bright bluish color that made BMWs look more unique and cooler. During that time HID headlights were quite expensive and could cost thousands of dollars to upgrade. In recent years, the cost of HID headlamps has come down significantly, making them far more affordable. One major benefit of upgrading to Xenon headlights is they last much longer than typical headlamps. HID headlights can last two to five times longer than the halogen bulbs without burning down. This makes them more economical for drivers in the long run. Another reason for their popularity is that they consume less energy than halogen bulbs which means better fuel efficiency. Tests show that Bi-Xenon headlights use 25-30 percent less energy than halogen bulbs. They are more economical for the electrical system and the battery overall. Despite lower consumption of power, HID headlights are significantly more powerful and generate a spark that is brighter than halogen headlamps. The light produced by Xenon lights is cleaner and provides a classy look to any vehicle, giving it an instant feeling of luxury. If you install them on a projector lens type of headlight, you will notice an immediate difference from halogen or even LED bulbs.
Why HID Headlights Last Longer?
The regular vehicle halogen headlights are similar to the light bulbs used in homes and other properties. These bulbs contain a sensitive filament that can be damaged easily with daily wear-and-tear. A worn out halogen bulb has a lower lighting output and gets dim with continued usage. This is why halogen bulbs often have to be replaced before completely burning out. HID lights, by contrast, operate on ignited xenon gas. There is no physical component inside the bulb that can be damaged. That is why they last much longer than halogen bulbs and do not get dimmer even after years of use. HID bulbs require fewer replacements and reduce the wastage of power while in operation.
Installing HID Headlight Kits
When you upgrade to HID headlamps for your vehicle, you will need an appropriate HID headlight conversion kit. Installation of HID headlights and bulbs is not very difficult and hardly takes half an hour per light. You will need four main components and two optional parts. 1.
