Xenon HID headlights have revolutionized the way millions of people worldwide approach nighttime driving. Rather than relying on the headlights of old, and their weak, yellow, directional light, a growing band of motorists across the world is making the switch to xenon HID headlights, as a more effective, energy efficient option for lighting the road ahead. Car mod fans were the first to cotton on to the superiority of HID headlights over regular, factor components, and xenon HIDs are now considered standard fare by those who pride themselves in optimizing vehicle performance. Today, HIDs have become much more mainstream, with motorists of all interests and backgrounds subscribing to the benefits they have to offer.
The process of upgrading your headlights is one that is deliberately made easy, thanks to our high-quality, German-made kits, which come complete with everything you need to install your xenon HIDs yourself. In particular, our kits are designed to be used by those with no technical knowledge if needs be, so you can achieve the standard of lighting performance you want without the need to visit a garage. If you don’t have half an hour to spare, or you’re lacking in confidence when it comes to handling the install, there’s even still the option to take your kit to a local garage, who will be more than capable of fitting the new headlights for you for an additional fee.
Upgrading your headlights to xenon HIDs is a simple, inexpensive process, and it begins with ordering your headlights kit from XenonPro.com. But why exactly are xenon HID models so much better than regular, halogen headlights, and is this always the best option for upgrading your vehicle?
Some things are driven by opinion, and others are a matter of fact. To say that xenon headlights are superior to halogen headlights is simply a matter of fact. Across every performance benchmark imaginable, xenon headlights outperform their halogen counterparts. Firstly, xenon headlights are much brighter than halogens, casting a much stronger light by default in like for like models. It is often the case that xenon headlights are as many as 3 to 5 times brighter than the standard option, which helps make the road so much better lit in low visibility or evening conditions.
For all this added brightness, you could be forgiven for assuming that xenon bulbs draw much more energy from the car than would normally be required from halogens. But based on the way these headlights work, by exciting xenon gas with an electrical charge rather than heating a filament, they actually work more efficiently than normal. That means that xenon HIDs offer a brighter quality of light that does a better job of illuminating the road you drive, all the while using less energy than would normally be the case. And to top it off, halogens fail to last anywhere near as long as a high quality, xenon HID headlight, which can often be good for as much as 150,000 road miles. With so many wins for xenon over halogen, it’s hard to see why so many road users are still content with the old option.
The process of upgrading your headlights starts with deciding on the best kit option for you. We offer a range of different xenon HID headlights, designed to meet the needs and preferences of every motorist. These range from dim yellow colored lights at the bottom end, through to brilliant white and beyond into blue tinged brightness. Because of the way these headlights work, more visible light is produced, versus less infrared light. This is effectively the inverse of halogen bulbs, hence why xenon HIDs are so much more energy efficient while still producing a much brighter output. Brightness is measured in lumens, and varies inversely with the temperature – in other words, the hotter the color temperature, in K degrees, the lower the lumens required to project at sufficient brightness.
Our most popular headlights are the 6000K option, which provides brilliant white light as you drive. However, there are a range of alternatives on offer, so it comes down to your individual preference as to what will work best. Of course, with XenonPro.com, you can relax in the knowledge that you’re getting a high quality product, regardless of the specific model you choose.
Once you’ve made your decision, it is time to think about the upgrading process. Upgrading to xenon HID headlights is designed to be as straightforward as possible, and each of our kits are created in such a way as to be installed by amateur motorists the world over. With every kit, we include detailed, easy to follow instructions that take you from initial purchase through to successful installation, with the minimum of hassle and fuss along the way. To upgrade, you don’t need any particular tools or any specialist equipment beyond the components included in the kit, and the whole upgrading process should take no more than 30 minutes. Of course, in the extremely unlikely event you are unhappy with the result, you can easily reverse the process, and reinstall your halogen headlights as before, with equal ease.
There are plenty of great reasons you should consider switching from halogen headlights to the xenon HID option. Perhaps the biggest strength of xenon as compared to standard models is the brightness and visibility it affords. Xenon headlights are noticeably brighter from the moment you install them, and the impact on road visibility, particularly when you are driving at night, is considerable. Xenon HID headlights illuminate much more of the road, so you can see more clearly where you’re going and what’s coming up ahead. This is ideal for anyone who drives on winding roads, or in the dark on a regular basis. Xenon HIDs can even be installed along with regular main beam headlights, so there is only an improvement in function to be had from installing these headlights.
