aftermarket light bulbs: upgrade options

high-intensity discharge headlights are the perfect replacement for your acura tl. since most bulbs lose their brightness after extended use, hids help to increase the output. there are different kinds of accurate and correct color temperatures measured and tested at the manufacturer’s photometric test lab. the white colors, however, provide more light and are less of a distraction compared to, for example, purple or green lights.

below are some of the white color temperatures available:
• 3000k which is the lowest temperature. the yellow output here is pure and perfect for fog lights.
• 4300k which is a natural output for the white color. it’s slightly warm and comes in most factory hids. it might also include a blue tint.
• 5000k which is pure white. it has no blue hue nor any mild hint.
• 6000k has an icy white color. it’s the most popular and matches best with leds.
• 8000k is the highest temperature and produces a cold blue color. the primary light is white with no decrease in output.
the best hid bulbs combine affordability and quality. they have high output and are manufactured in line with dot/sae and ece size and position requirements. there’s no expense spared as they also include american salts and german quartz. these materials ensure
who they last longer, are reliable and offer excellent colors.

• open your vehicle’s hood.
• slide the engine covers apart both on the right and left sides.
• pull the bulkhead cover straight up and a little to the left to remove it.
• remove the three holding clips on the driver’s hand using a flathead screwdriver. pull the top part of the air intake duct if you’re working on the driver’s side.
• if you’re working on the passenger’s side, pull out the engine coolant reserve tank together with its support.
• remove the electrical connector from the halogen bulb by pushing on the tab.
• turn the bulb anticlockwise to remove it.
• install a new halogen bulb. if you had touched the glass with bare hands, clean it with denatured alcohol and a clean cloth.
• re-install the electrical connector.
• turn your headlights on to test if they work.
• re-install the top part of the air intake duct and fix the three holding clips on the driver’s side.
• place back the engine coolant reserve tank if you worked on the passenger’s side.

also, avoid touching your halogen bulbs or bumping them against anything. oils, sweat and scratches can cause shattering due to their high temperatures.
