Welcome to Car HID Lights, your best online source for information, installation and prices for HID Lights, Bulbs and Conversion Kits
HID Lights for cars, are very common on the streets of today. They stand out from other car headlights because of their intense lighting and colorful luminous. HID Lights, are becoming more of the norm on many vehicles and aftermarket kits are becoming more and more popular on many cars.
HID Lights were introduced as an OEM option on cars in the mid the 1990's. Some of the first manufacturers to introduce this bulb option on their cars were Mercedes, BMW and Lincoln. These options were offered on these cars as more of a safety feature than anything else. We will go through the safety features and the pros and cons of a car HID kit a little later on. But first let’s try and understand what the HID kit consists of.
HID Lights for cars or just HID stands for High Intensity Discharge. This kit uses Xenon bulbs to create a much whiter, and brighter light than its predecessor, the halogen bulb. They are called xenon bulbs, because that’s the name of the gas that the bulb uses, so hence Xenon bulb. Xenon gas is a colorless, odorless gas that responds to electrical current. The more gas in the bulb, the more electricity going through the bulb, the brighter, and more colorful the light is emitted.
HID lights for cars were introduced more as a safety feature then anything else. The light that the HID kit emits is brighter and has a longer and wider range. All of these characteristics allow night driving to become safer and obstacles appear earlier on the road, allowing more time for drivers to respond.
HID lighting is not only provided by many manufacturers as an OEM option. It is also provided by many aftermarket companies, as an aftermarket option. They are available in most bulb sizes. Here are some of the most common bulb sizes for HID kits:
H1, H3, H4, H7, h13, 9004, 9005, 9006, 9007, D1S, D2S.
- There are single beam conversion kits, dual beam conversion kits and there are Telescopic beam conversion kits.
- The Single beam is designed for just the low beam to be converted to an HID. They come with two xenon bulbs, and two ballasts.
- The Dual beam consists of four xenon bulbs (two for low, and two for high beam) and four ballasts.
- The Telescopic (dual filament, which is when one bulb is used for low and high beam) comes with two special xenon bulbs and two special two ballasts.
HID lights for cars are designed to emit different colors. The xenon bulbs are temperature rated, and depending on the temperature they emit a different color. Here is what they are: 3000K (Golden Yellow) , 4300K (Bright White), 5000K (white), 6000K (Crystal White),8000K (Crystal Blue), 10000K (Aqua Blue), 12000K (Purple-Blue).
Today, HID Lights are available from most manufacturers as an OEM option. If you don’t have that option or if you have an older vehicle, you can always purchase an aftermarket HID kit. Before you do, be sure to check the rules and regulations in your state.
