What You Need To Know About Headlights



It is a legal requirement to ensure your headlights are in good working order, including dipped headlights, and should they fail or become damaged it is essential to replace them.

We can supply the vast majority of headlamps including Xenon headlights and LED headlights.
This includes replacement car headlight bulbs where appropriate, as well as entire light units.

Not only do your headlights illuminate the road in hours of darkness, they are also an indication to other road users as to your position on the road.

Headlights are made with different beam patterns for different countries. In the United Kingdom our lights are classed as Right-Hand Drive. Some headlights aremade that can be switched from right hand drive to left hand drive. This controls how the beam pattern come out of the headlights.

All our headlamps comply with the relevant European standards

Tips when choosing Headlights from the Ultimate Styling website:
All choices are to the specification of the original version. Some vehicles can have upgraded lights fitted from the factory, so sometimes, it helps to study the image.

This is the same for front headlights. There are generally two options; Halogen headlights or xenon headlights.

Always check the year breaks and if necessary ask one of our team for help if you are unsure.

Headlight Types



Halogen Headlights
The bulb has a filament inside made out of tungsten and halogen gas. When the current of electricity gets to the filament, it heats up the tungsten causing it to glow and produce the light. Halogen bulbs usually emit a colour temperature between 3000K and 5000k. To attempt to match that of a Xenon bulb, you would require non-road legal Halogen bulbs.

Halogen Xenon Headlights


Xenon Headlights
Xenon bulbs gained popularity due to the advancements in emitting light. Most Xenon bulbs sit behind ‘projector domes’ which direct the light at the road in more of a direct fashion as opposed to the way halogen headlights light beam reflects off the inside casing and onto the road. Xenon headlights only really tend to be found on higher specification cars before 2010, however they are a lot more common on all vehicles now. Xenons produce a bright white light and usually have a longer lifespan. They work by using electrodes to charge the gas inside the bulb as opposed to a filament.

LED Headlights
The recent developments have lead to LED lights being used in most new cars these days. LED produce a extremely white light, whilst being more efficient than halogen or xenons bulbs, as they require a very low wattage to work
