Headlights are lights that attach to the front of your vehicle and seem pretty straightforward: they illuminate the road in front of you. However, there are a variety of different styles of headlights, so it is important to know which type you would like to purchase. The HID (high intensity discharge) headlights as well as the xenon lights – filled with xenon gas – both serve different functions and come at a much higher price-point than traditional headlights.

Projector headlights are yet another version of this revered auto part. Projector lights may use a variety of different technologies to actually form the light, but they are different than traditional lamps in that they have a small, moveable shield controlled by an electric motor that automatically moves between low and high beam when activated. Even the smallest accident can cause problems with the small moving parts in this type of headlights.

Here are a few tips when searching for your preferred type of headlight bulb:

  • Type of bulb: Depending on what sort of car you own and if you are looking to just replace your headlights or upgrade them, you have several main types of bulbs to choose from. There are your standard bulbs in older vehicles, but most newer vehicles have either halogen, xenon or LED lights.

  • OEM vs aftermarket: While OEM headlight will be a guaranteed fit, aftermarket lights can be a cheaper and better alternative in this case.

  • Check for compatibility: There is a wild amount of different designs can make it tough to assure that the headlights you have chosen will work on your vehicle in the way that you expected.

  • Looking to upgrade: If your headlight lenses have faded or yellowed, it is time to replace them. As you’re looking at replacements, keep in mind whether you want to have the new xenon (blue/white light) headlights or if the more traditional yellow light headlights are your preference.

  • Sealed beam headlights: If your sealed beam headlights have gone out, you must replace not only the bulb, but the entire assembly; which can be much more costly.

Edgar was amazing. Showed up right away and found the leak to my car immediately. I also requested the back breaks be changed out. Both things were done in a reasonable time and I didn’t need to get an Uber or beg for a loaner car. Plan on using this service and Edgar’s help again in the near future.
