About this Product:
HID Lights are a great way to give your vehicle custom ultra-bright headlights. You just replace your factory headlights bulbs with the HID kit. HID kits burn a lot hotter than your factory bulbs, and are therefore brighter. The wattage, which indicates the heat and therefore color, ranges from 6000k up to 10000k for APS HID lights, with 10000k being the hottest. The 6000k is an amber/yellow tint, the 8000k is closer to white, and the 10000k has a blue tint.
High Intensity Discharge (HID) is the latest technology in automotive lighting. It replaces the filament of the light bulb with xenon gas by utilizing the gas discharge principle, an arc of light is created between two electrodes in a small capsule filled with a mixture of xenon gas and halide salts. When high voltage is applied, the gas is ignited to produce an arc of light.
