Modern composite headlights are incorporated into the design of the body for improved styling and aerodynamics. They allow manufacturers the freedom to include turn signal/parking/running lights in the headlight housing if desired as well as use different forms of lighting including LEDs, projector beams, halos, etc. Unfortunately, the plastic lenses on these lights deteriorate with the years and miles, becoming abraded from road debris, and discolored, hazy and opaque from the sun and the elements.

Our replacement headlights will appear, fit, and function just like the factory units, and meet all legal standards for highway use. Our custom lights are also bolt-on replacements, but in some cases may require some wiring modifications. Projector headlights produce a sharper, more focused beam of light with less scatter loss. Where a traditional parabolic reflector reflects light outward in a dispersed pattern, a projector beam’s elliptical reflector reflects the light toward a single focal point in front of the bulb. LED lights are extremely durable, with an average lifespan of over 50,000 hours and the light they produce is much brighter and cleaner than incandescent light.

Halo headlights, also called “angel eyes”, are light rings that surround the headlights, for a distinctive look popularized by European cars. Halos can be illuminated by LED bulbs or use CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lighting) lighting. CCFL Halos are filled with gas, like a neon sign, and display the same kind of glow. We also have halo ring kits so you can add this great feature to your existing headlights. U-Bar lights are similar to halos, and while both will get your vehicle noticed, the increased visibility also means safer driving for you. Euro headlights are a great choice if you’re looking for the combination of unique style and superior illumination typically found on fine European performance cars.

Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) are original equipment on many vehicles because studies have shown that they make cars and trucks more conspicuous during daylight. We offer replacement DRLs as well as DRL fixtures you can install on your vehicle if it didn’t come with this safety feature. The latter feature brilliant LED lights that will make your vehicle stand out, even during inclement weather and when driving during times of the year when the sun casts long shadows. We also have a large selection of custom and replacement signal lights, and when the weather turns dreary or you need to see obstacles off road, you can count on our custom and factory fog lights and LED and HID auxiliary/driving lights.

It used to be if you had an older car or truck with sealed beam headlights that your only option for custom lighting was mounting additional lights. But no more. We not only have standard factory replacement round and rectangular sealed beams, but sealed beam conversion kits as well. With these kits you can get the hi-tech, custom lighting features that were previously only available for composite headlights, including projector beams, LEDs, halos, turn signals and even a choice of colors. And when you need replacement bulbs, we have the brightest headlight bulbs available, incandescent and LED bulbs for all of your other lights, or you can upgrade your headlights with an LED headlight conversion kit.

    Care And Feeding Of Your Composite Headlamps
    The condition of a vehicle's headlights is probably the last thing most drivers worry about unless there's a significant problem. Yesterday's cars with sealed beam headlights required little maintenance other than to replace a round or rectangular unit when one burned out. And once a new headlight was put in, everything looked and worked like new again.

    How To Install A Set Of Custom Headlamp Assemblies
    If the front of your vehicle is its “face”, then the headlamps have long been considered the vehicle’s “eyes”. Everyone notices them. One of the most distinctive changes you can make to the face of your car or truck is to replace the factory headlamp assemblies with a custom set. Your ride will take on a personality all its own, and will gain a distinctive appearance that will set it apart from all the other look-alike vehicles on the road.

    Factors To Consider When Purchasing A Replacement Factory Headlamp
    We at CARiD know that there are times when you need to replace factory headlight assemblies with units that match the quality and function of your originals. While it's more "fun" to customize your ride, sometimes the repair takes priority. One headlamp lens may be cracked. You may have been in a minor fender-bender (lamp bender?) and the mounting tabs may have broken. Note that "factory" style headlight assemblies we sell are designed to replicate the original lamps, so you will not be considering features such as LEDs, halo rings, or projector beams. We've created this article to help ensure what you purchase is exactly right for your needs and wants.

    How To Choose The Best Custom Headlamp Assembly For Your Car
    Custom headlamp assemblies on the market today tend to be grouped into four main designations: "Projector" style, "Halo" style, "LED" style, and "Euro" style. This can lead to confusion, because "Halo" style headlamp assemblies may also be equipped with projector lights and LED bulbs. Or, "Euro" style headlight assemblies may be equipped with halo rings, projector lights, and LEDs… or they may not be. You may be asking yourself which style is the best choice for me? See our Custom and Factory Headlight Glossary for definitions and more details about each style.

    A Brief History Of Sealed Beam Headlamps In The U.S.
    Those of you born after 1990 or so have grown up in an automotive world where “all cars” have composite headlamp assemblies, uniquely designed to be make- and model-specific. If a light within the assembly burns out, you replace “just” the bulb. If the unit cracks, you must purchase a replacement that fits your car and your car only.

    What Are The Different Types Of Halo Headlight Rings?
    Ever since BMW introduced "halo" headlights to serve as daytime running lights on their 2001 5-series, rings of light encircling round headlamp bulb openings have caught on around the world as THE dramatic way to add visual Wow and stance to a vehicle's front profile. While composite headlamp assemblies became mainstream in the 1980s, it wasn't until the turn of the millennium that automakers began to style multi-faceted projector beam style bulbs within the housings.
  • LED Lights
    Automotive LED Lighting Explained.
    There is now LED lighting technology available for every conventional automotive lighting purpose. The incandescent bulbs haven’t really developed that much in the 140 years they have existed, while the development rate of LEDs is very rapid, with LED performance being doubled every 36 months, a development rate that is similar to the fast pace of computer development.

    How Does a Halogen Light Bulb Work?
    Today, halogen bulbs are most often used for headlights and fog lights, and their increased light output increases driver visibility in darkness and inclement weather. Halogen bulbs are a variant of the traditional incandescent bulbs that have been used since the early days of the electric light. The bulb is either evacuated (has a vacuum) or filled with an inert gas to keep the filament from oxidizing.

Oh Boy
The item was shipped without any protective wrapping just loose in a box (http://imgur.com/a/CzPaw). The second shipment I asked to be shipped with bubble wrap. (especially for paying nearly $200) The second shipment did not have the bubble wrap I requested. Luckily it was not broken. But apart from that they are just like the OEM lights just with a matte finish and clear lens.
