Convert Your Headlights To Xenon Lights
28 September 2008
When driving you may have noticed that many vehicles these days have much brighter headlights that the ones on your vehicle. These lights are called xenon lights. Xenon lights provide a reproduction of daylights natural spectrum so visibility of the road and what is in front of you seems much more like what you see during the day. Not only is this much easier on your eyes but it is much safer for the driver especially during hazardous conditions such as rain, fog, or snow. Xenon lights also last significantly longer than standard headlights with most having as much as ten times the lifespan. Another great benefit to xenon is although they provide you with more light they actually use less battery life than standard halogen lights. The lights are generally six to eight times more energy efficient providing you with less worry if your must use your headlights without your vehicle running or just generally care about putting less stress on your cars battery.
This newer lighting technology also makes your vehicle much more attractive and visible in the night hours. You may or may not be interested in making your vehicle having a better appeal but the safety shouldn't be considered a luxury when it comes to driving at night. When outside of a city, many vehicles do not provide the proper lighting to be able to detect foreign life or objects that obstruct the road which cause many fatal accidents every year. Almost everyone who drives at night would agree that they have experienced at least one close call that could have been prevented if they were given the brightness of day light.
Xenon lights generally come standard on higher end luxury vehicles such as Lexus, Mercedes, and BMWs. Fortunately, you don't need to spend over fifty thousand dollars to sport such a luxury. For fewer than two hundred dollars you can purchase high quality xenon light conversion kits that will generally will last the entire life of your vehicle.
Personally, I recommend that anyone that can afford to so should convert their vehicle using a xenon light conversion kit if their vehicle didn't initially come with them. The cost could easily be made up if compared to what your deductable would be in the unfortunate situation you were involved in an accident because of poor visibility. They are safer, easier on the eyes, energy efficient, and even make your vehicle much more appealing from an external view.
