HID Upgrade | Conversion

HID lights can be 300% brighter than standard car lights – the clear white light produced by a Xenon bulb is similar to daylight. Research has shown that this enables drivers to concentrate better. Furthermore, this particular light colour reflects the road markings and signs better than conventional lighting once you have driven with HID Xenon you will never want to go back to Halogen.

The xenon bulb will last up to 10 times longer than a standard halogen bulb and even longer compared to the new whiter halogen bulbs. An average life is 2000 hours.

HID Lights and IVA

When importing a vehicle into the UK that is less than ten years old, you will need to have an IVA test carried out. This checks that the car complies with UK road laws and checks items such as exhaust noise, seatbelts, windscreen wipers, sprayers and lighting.
