Honda Civic Rear Bumper Brake Lamp Lava Style – Model 2016 – 2017.
The following is a list of six of the major benefits of installing various car lighting accessories. A selection of some of the products considered most ideal for offering those particular benefits is also provided.
The most obvious purpose of any type of lighting system on a vehicle is to increase the driver’s ability to see, particularly while driving at night or in adverse weather conditions. Some drivers suffer from nyctalopia, or what is more commonly known as night blindness, and many original equipment manufacturer (OEM) headlamps simply do not create enough light for individuals with this condition. Even drivers with good night vision can have trouble seeing with low-quality lighting. Instead of driving around with the high beams on at all times, drivers who wish to increase their visibility should consider upgrading their headlamps. Whether for dark nights or bad weather, one of the following car lighting accessories could be just what such drivers are looking for.
|The next step up from OEM incandescent bulbs, halogen bulbs have become the standard for headlamp bulb replacement. They burn much brighter than incandescent bulbs do, and they are generally considered to be a worthy upgrade. However, because of the sensitivity of their internal design, halogens are more susceptible to weather damage than other high-end bulb types. To overcome this limitation, halogen bulbs are available with special weatherproof coatings.|
|High-Intensity Discharge Xenon light uses a special chemical reaction to mimic the intensity of sunlight. The superhot gas that burns within these bulbs will increase visibility dramatically, making HID Xenon bulbs ideal for any driver who suffers from night blindness or just wants a better view of the road.|
|Fog lamps are typically mounted low and at an angle that better illuminates the road directly in front of the vehicle, giving the driver a better view of the road through fog, rain, and other adverse weather. Fog lights are the perfect car lighting accessories for drivers living in areas prone to these types of weather conditions.|
While increasing visibility goes a long way toward improving vehicular safety, there are other car lighting accessories drivers can use to help make sure they and their passengers get to their destination in one piece. An excellent way to improve safety besides increasing how well the driver can see is to increase how well others can see the driver. One way to do this is with various LED car lighting accessories. LEDs are bright and versatile. Installing any of the following on a vehicle will help ensure that other drivers see it before it is too late.
|Brake lights are extremely important because they let drivers know when the vehicle in front of them is slowing or stopping. When brake lights are too dim, this information may not register with the driver, causing him or her to stop too late and collide with the vehicle instead. LEDs are bright enough to get the attention a set of brake lights deserves, and because they light to full intensity faster than incandescent bulbs, they give other drivers more time to react.|
|Corner lamps are other important lights on a vehicle, as they make it easier for drivers to see a vehicle that is about to turn onto the road ahead of them. As with the brake lights, using LED bulbs in corner lamps make a vehicle easier to spot and avoid.|
|When a driver has a flat tire or other mechanical issue and needs to pull over to the side of the road, the driver is putting himself or herself at great risk. Even worse is when a driver’s vehicle actually breaks down in the middle of a lane. To make sure other drivers do not collide with the vehicle, the owner can install LED emergency flashers. These lights flash fast and bright, making them nearly impossible to ignore and alerting other drivers of the stalled vehicle ahead.|
Cars and trucks can be used for a whole lot more than basic transportation. When they are not hauling kids to school or groceries to the house, they can be hauling furniture, livestock, or even other cars. For instance, a truck owner might need to use his or her vehicle at some point to offer roadside assistance to drivers who are broke down in the middle of the night. Whether it requires changing a tire in the dark or towing a vehicle down a poorly lit stretch of highway, these and many other situations could greatly benefit from the use of certain aftermarket car lighting accessories. With the right lighting accessories, such as the following two items, hard jobs are made at least a little easier.
|Spotlights are ideal for working in the dark. Whether the vehicle owner needs to change a tire along the highway or repair a fence on the dark side of a pasture, all he or she needs to do is point and shoot. These lights are typically mounted on the driver’s side door or on the roof, but they also come as handheld types that plug into the vehicle’s 12-volt outlet. No work truck should be without one.|
|Towing a disabled vehicle or a fully loaded trailer will make it next to impossible for following drivers to see the owner’s tail lamps and brake lights. To remedy this serious problem, towing lights are placed on the rear end of the object in tow. They are wired directly to the lead vehicle, so when the driver stops, anyone behind the driver will know it.|
One of the most important aspects of any vehicle is style. Even the humblest drivers enjoy expressing their own style and individuality through the type of car they drive. To really set themselves apart from the crowd, many install car lighting accessories that give their vehicle its own unique flair. These accessories sometimes help with overall lighting performance, but often they are installed just for looks. Drivers who want to turn heads as they pass by should consider any of the following style-boosting accessories.
|Euro head and tail lights come in thousands of unique styles and are made to replace the entire OEM lighting assembly on a vehicle. They are typically clear or black with chrome trim and red coloring in only the necessary places. These lights are among the dressiest things to install on a car. Fortunately, most of these lights use LED bulbs, which also increases their effectiveness.|
|Any attention-seeking driver will be sure to get his or her share after installing an underbody neon light kit. These kits come in a large variety of vibrant colors, and they illuminate the road under and around the vehicle. The bulbs themselves are positioned so that they are hidden and only shine their light straight down. This positioning prevents them from blinding other drivers and makes the vehicle appear to be floating on bright, colorful light.|
|For pickup owners, tailgate tail light bars are some of the classiest car lighting accessories available. They are long strips of red LED lights that affix to the tailgate itself, giving the pickup its own kind of “Euro” look. Not only do they improve the visual appeal of the truck, they can also function as a third brake light for increased road safety.|
Many aftermarket car lighting accessories are just for show, but serious performance drivers should have no trouble finding sporty accessories that actually give their driving skills a boost. Driving at high speeds after dark requires a long range of view, which necessitates long-range lighting. Nighttime off-roading can also be made safer with superior lighting that allows the driver to see the various obstacles ahead. Whether on-road or off, driving enthusiasts can always benefit from better visibility. Fortunately for them, there is a perfect lighting solution available for each scenario.
|CCFLs (cold-cathode fluorescent lamps) are often called “halos” for the unique ring shape of the bulbs. These high-performance bulbs are able to project intense light further than any other style of headlight on the road, giving high-speed drivers plenty of time to see which way the road bends before they get there.|
|These lights mount to nearly any place on any vehicle. Mounting them to the roof or grille of an off-road truck will allow the driver to see rocks, bumps, mud puddles, and trees well in advance.|
While increasing both safety on the road and the personal enjoyment one gets out of a car or truck is important, the owner also has to consider the day when he or she will be ready to trade in or sell that particular vehicle. When that day comes, the vehicle’s most important attribute will be its value. Upgrading and installing new parts can have a significant effect on a vehicle’s worth and even convince an otherwise indecisive buyer to go ahead and sign on the dotted line. For instance, dim and dingy headlamps can give the impression that the vehicle is older and more worn than it actually is. Installing a set of CCFL lights would clear that problem right up. Someone looking for more style would likely appreciate a set of Euro tail lights. A driver who is most concerned with safety may be looking to purchase a vehicle with LED brake lights. Although the increase of value can sometimes be purely situational, the more an owner puts into a vehicle, the more he or she is likely to get out of it.
