What is a Headlight?
A headlight is the main front-fitted light on any car or vehicle. They contain headlight bulbs and allow for clear visibility at night, in low-light, rainy, or foggy conditions. It can be directed forward or dipped. Most headlights are dipped so that they don't blind oncoming drivers. We stock replacement headlight bulbs for a range of vehicles.
What kind of Headlight Bulbs are Available?
There are three main types of headlight bulbs used in vehicles. These are:
Halogen bulbs are the most common bulbs you'll find in a vehicle today. Halogen bulbs are fitted to most cars because they're more cost-effective to manufacture, offering a cheaper replacement than other bulb types.
They're more affordable than Xenon or LED bulbs, and at GSF Car Parts we stock a vast range of halogen bulbs for every make and model.
LED bulbs are an extremely bright and long-lasting option for your car. They are highly energy-efficient, using less power from your vehicle's battery. They tend to outlast halogen bulbs and are around 150-300% brighter. They last up to 10 years but are more costly than halogen bulbs.
Unfortunately, although it is legal to have LED bulbs internally in your car, there is no legislation to approve the use of replacement LED lights as externally. And since 2021, MOT testing centres will now fail LED upgrade bulbs unless they were fitted by the manufacturer.
Xenon HID bulbs have a xenon gas that is 300-450% brighter than standard halogen bulbs and can come in different colours. They should be replaced around every three years and in pairs.
Like LED bulbs, there is currently no legislation for Xenon bulbs legal for replacement bulbs in your car unless fitted originally by the manufacturer.
