HID Headlights Explained

Motorists worldwide are no longer settling for second best. When it comes to headlights, there is a clear, bright winner, leaving all other options as less than satisfactory. HID xenon headlights are brighter, cleaner and more energy efficient than their halogen counterparts, and with easy-to-install kits available from, there’s no reason not to make the upgrade. We’ve supplied over 50,000 customers worldwide with high quality, German-made HID headlight kits, and we look forward to helping even more motorists improved the standard of their driving experience.

The headlights are undoubtedly one of the most important safety feature on your car. When it comes to driving at night, or on poorly lit roads, they are essential for lighting the road ahead, and for illuminating hazards and pedestrians along the way. But with standard headlights, the quality of light is often far from ideal. Yellow-tinged lights are often too dim to be perfect, and as a result, many road users find their standard car models to be less effective as a result. HID xenon headlights can be retrofitted to any car, and can help tackle the brightness and visibility issues once and for all. But how do these headlights actually work, and how does this differ from standard halogen models?

How HID Xenon Headlights Work

HID xenon headlights work in a way that is entirely different from regular, halogen headlights. There is no filament inside HID xenon bulbs. Instead, a combination of an electrical charge and xenon gas is used to produce the light. When the gas is excited by the electrical charge, it emits a much brighter, whiter light than that produced by halogen bulbs. At the same time, these headlights are much more efficient, and can last for a much longer period of time before they need replaced. And with kits designed for amateur installation, you can make the upgrade yourself, without any additional cost or particular technical knowledge.

HID xenon lights are graded according to their temperature and lumens output. Temperature denotes the color of light that the bulbs will produce, ranging from a dim yellow through to brilliant white and beyond, into vibrant blues and purples. Lumens output determines the level of brightness of the color, and usually correlates inversely to the temperature color. In essence, this means higher temperature bulbs usually require a lower lumens output, on account of the brightness of the color they produce. Depending on your car type, average road conditions and your personal preference, you may wish to opt for any of the range of color and brightness outputs available, ranging from 3000K right up to 12000K.

Why HID Xenon Headlights Are Far Superior

When you compare HID xenon headlights with standard halogen models, it becomes immediately apparent that HID technology is far superior. Halogen bulbs are very much the standard, and are installed on most new models of car. But the light they produce is nothing compared to that from HID headlights. The yellowish, dull light that comes from halogen headlights is insufficient for properly driving in poorly lit areas, and will do little to illuminate the periphery as you drive. Contrast that with HID xenon bulbs, where you benefit from a much broader scope of illumination, from a much brighter, clearer light. This makes it easier to identify pedestrians, hazards and other obstacles in and around the road as you drive.

At the same time, HID headlights are much more energy efficient. They often require as little as half of the energy of regular bulbs, while producing a brightness equivalent to 3 to 5 times that of the original. You can even install these bulbs yourself, thanks to our handy installation kit, which comes complete with instructions for novice installs.

Who Can Install HID Xenon Headlights?

Thanks to our focus on producing the highest quality kits in the industry, with easy installation processes and complete, detailed instructions, we are able to extend the benefits of HID xenon headlights to motorists worldwide. There is no need for particular knowledge or expertise – in fact, our instructions guide you through the process, which takes as little as 15 minutes per headlight. The headlights can be used instantly once you have successfully completed the install, allowing you access to brighter lights and a clearer road ahead from the moment you finish up.

If you feel less confident in your own abilities to complete the upgrade, a local garage will be more than comfortable installing that for you, for the cost of their labor. Either way, the process is extremely straightforward, and you should have no trouble in effecting the upgrade to your car headlights. HID kits tend to be universal too, which means that they should fit any car or vehicle that currently houses standard halogen headlights. So if you’re looking for a brighter drive, with more energy efficient, longer-lasting headlights, there’s absolutely no reason not to upgrade your vehicle.

Upgrading To Xenon

HID xenon headlights are the way forward, and in any objective test, the performance output from xenon beats halogen hands down. Xenon headlights are brighter, and improve visibility considerably in dark or evening conditions. At the same time, these bulbs are much more efficient, and last for much longer than standard halogen headlights. For this reason, HID xenon upgrade kits are proving to be increasingly popular among motorists right across the US, Canada and beyond. At, we offer a range of HID xenon headlight kits, across different bulb temperatures and lumens outputs, depending on your requirements. Our kits are manufactured in Germany to the highest technical standards, ensuring a straightforward install of a high quality product. With our point by point install instructions, there are no barriers to upgrading any car to these far superior headlights.

If you are looking for a more comfortable, safer drive in the dark, with vastly improved visibility and incredible energy efficiency gains, look no further than an HID xenon installation kit. And with over 50,000 satisfied customers, is the only choice.
