BEST bulbs and leds PART DEALS MINIMUM EFFORT!
bulbs and leds
Regardless of the vehicle you drive, the bulbs and LEDs fitted to it must work so you can see where you are going in poor weather conditions and at night. Here we explain more.
Car bulbs and LEDs
Car bulbs and LEDs are crucial to help drivers boost their visibility, particularly at night and in poor light situations and also to help them see clearly the road ahead when driving in the dark. It is always a good idea to carry spare headlight bulbs and LEDs wherever you go - and if you are travelling in some European countries this will be a legal requirement. Obviously, having functioning brake lights is an important part of road safety and will help following vehicles be aware when you depress the brake pedal. Other bulbs fitted to your car will include the courtesy lights to illuminate the cabin and bulbs for the dashboard so it can be used at night.
Tungsten halogen light bulbs
Most bulbs used in car headlamps are tungsten halogen light bulbs which offer a balance between price and performance. The downside to these bulbs is that they have a lifespan which is determined by how often they are used and they are particularly affected in cold weather. The tungsten coated filament that is found in the headlamps can snap easily or wear thin. The other issue is that the intense heat that is required to create the light can lead to the crystal lamp being put under stress, so the headlamp will dim over time.
Fitting LED bulbs
Alongside this, growing numbers of newer cars are fitting LED bulbs for their headlights because these not only last longer but tend to be much brighter. They also require less maintenance and are cheaper to run because they use less energy. LED lights are not just used in the headlamps but also for the indicators, brake lights and sidelights. It's also possible to use LED bulbs to help customise your cabin if required. Some cars that haven't had LED bulbs fitted by the vehicle manufacturer may require a conversion kit so these bulbs can be installed.
Working rear tail lamp and sidelight bulbs
It's also a legal requirement to have a working rear tail lamp and sidelight bulbs fitted to a car in the UK and it's always a good idea to check your bulbs on regular basis to see that they function properly. The tail lamp will enable vehicles following you to see you in the dark while the sidelights offer a small dim light from the front corners of the vehicle to help improve visibility to other road users. Many modern car manufacturers have now integrated their sidelights into the main headlight bulb unit, so you'll need to check which one you will need. Bulbs are relatively cheap and easy to fit but it is possible to take your vehicle to a professional and have them install the bulbs on your behalf.
Searching for car bulbs and LEDs
