How to Buy Good Quality Long Range Car Lights

Your car is equipped with two types of headlight functionality – low beams, which are used for general driving, particularly in areas with streetlights and oncoming traffic, and high beams, which provide long range illumination. Buying quality long range car lights is simple, but you’ll need to consider a few things.

When buying long range car lights, make sure that the light is actually rated for your car (all vehicles have very specific requirements and you can’t use a different type of bulb connector without extensive modifications to the wiring harness). You’ll also want to consider things like lifespan and light output.

Here are a few tips that will help you in purchasing long range car lights:

  • Type: Your car is rated for specific low beams and long range car lights. You can generally find this information in your owner’s manual, but you can also look on the back of the light bulb package, or in a bulb catalog at your local parts store.

  • Lifespan: Note that the type of bulb you’re required to use will have the most impact on lifespan. For instance, LEDs last much, much longer than halogen bulbs. However, there are variances between different bulb manufacturers. Check the packaging and compare the estimated lifespans before making a choice.

  • Off-road long range car lights: As a note, there are long range car lights that offer far better illumination than your high beams. However, these are generally designed to be used with off-road vehicles and are not legal for road use in most states.

Long range car lights ensure that you’re able to see the road better in low-light situations, such as driving in a rural area where there are no street lights.

Hyundai Elantra L4-2.0L - Headlight Bulb Replacement (Driver Side Low Beam) - Hanover, Pennsylvania
Brian informed me that there was an issue, other than the original situation, that would need work however, since it would require the vehicle to be on a lift, he would not be able to make that repair. He did however make the repairs that were originally requested.
