Have you ever passed a newer Porsche or BMW and noticed their distinct headlights? Those headlight are called HID. HID, or High Intensity Discharge, it the new replacement technology for halogen headlights. There are numerous advantages of HID headlights. Brightness, electrical consumption, and looks are the most notable advantages of HID conversion kits. If you’re looking for the perfect upgrade for your vehicle, consider an HID Conversion Kit.
Brightness is the biggest advantage of an HID conversion. Not only will you be able to see farther and better at night, but other drivers will be able to see as well. Its estimated that an HID conversion kit will increase your brightness from a halogen set up as much as 300%. That is an enormous upgrade and will be extremely beneficial to anyone driving at night.
Electrical consumption might seem misleading as an HID Conversion Kit is actually brighter than halogen bulbs, but HID actually consumes less electricity. In each HID conversion kit you are given ballasts. These ballasts actually convert your standard 55w electricity that powers your halogen bulbs and reduces it to 35w. This puts less strain on your electrical systems.
A distinct HID conversion kit will allow you to stand out among the thousands of other vehicles on the road. HID kits can varry in color, depending on how bright or which color you want. The lowest on the scale is 3000k, which emits a yellow beam. As we scale upwards, 4300k gives off a pure white, 6000k gives off a light blue, 8000k a deep blue, and 12000k gives off a bright purple. There are advantages and disadvantages for the more unique colors. As you increase the temperature, or kelvin (k), the output actually decreases. The 12000k purple is actually not as bright as the 4300k. If you’re looking for looks, go crazy with the 8000k or 12000k. If you want a balance between brightness and color, consider the 4300-6000k.
An HID conversion kit can not only update the look of your vehicle, its actually in your own interest to increase visibility and make your vehicle by upgrading to an HID kit. The installation is actually be simple and all wiring, harnesses, bulbs and mounting is included in each HID kit. With a price tag of around $100, you can’t beat this upgrade in performance and looks.
