3 reasons to upgrade both your dipped and main headlight bulbs

So, you’ve decided to upgrade your car headlight bulbs and you’re probably focusing on the dipped beam – the bulb used most for night time driving. But have you considered upgrading both your dipped and main beam headlight bulbs at the same time? Here are three reasons why we think you should…

1. Two birds, one stone

The number one reason I’d give for upgrading both your dipped and main beam headlight bulbs simultaneously would be time. Either way, if you decide to replace the bulbs yourself or ask a mechanic to do so, replacing both bulbs together just makes sense as you’ll be geared up for replacing one set anyway. Think of what you can do with all that time you’ll save if you’d decided to change the bulbs separately!

2. Match made in heaven

By opting for both dipped and main beam headlight bulbs in your chosen range, be it OSRAM Night Breaker Unlimited or Philips X-treme Vision +130 for example, you’ll find the two bulbs (low/high) will match up perfectly. If you only decide to upgrade your dipped beam headlight bulbs you just won’t achieve that uniform look with a standard bulb in for the main beam. Read more here.

Some headlight upgrades are also easier or harder depending on the vehicle you drive and the type of headlights that it came with from the factory.

Upgrading Your Headlights To LEDs

The aftermarket in car headlights has never been more buoyant, with more motorists looking to upgrade than ever before, coupled with a bigger range of products available. LED headlights are widely seen as the optimum solution, and while these were previously beyond the budget of the average motorist looking to upgrade, they are now more affordable than ever. This means there are even fewer barriers to upgrading to an LED based solution, providing a better quality of lighting and improved conditions for driving in the dark.

Should You Upgrade To Halogens, HIDs or LEDs?

Halogens, HID headlights and LED headlights all have their own distinct advantages, and indeed drawbacks. Before you make a decision one way or the other, it is sensible to ensure you are doing so from an informed position to avoid disappointment. If you don’t know what you’re buying and why, you may end up damaging your headlights and your car in the process, and you’ll be both out of pocket and back where you started. Instead, familiarising yourself with the different headlight designs available means you can make the right decision for your motoring and your budget.

Cheapest – Halogen. Halogen headlights are of course the cheapest option available, providing the bare minimum in lighting quality. Most people just replace like for like in their cars, but only because they are unaware these are often a less than optimal option. While halogens are cheap to buy, they need to be replaced long-term on a more regular basis than LEDs, and so can cost more in the long-run. Additionally, the lighting quality they offer is significantly diminished relative to other types of headlights, and it is worth bearing this in mind when making your decision. See more here.
