HID lights or commonly known as xenon headlights, HID feature an arc of electricity created by electricity traveling amongst two tungsten electrodes inside the bulb, which is filled with xenon gas. This will lead to a brighter light which you do not get from a tungsten element alone. To put into perspective you can get up to three thousand lumens from a HID bulb versus a halogen bulb that only emits half the amount of it, for a difference of ninety square meters against thirty square meters of illumination. That result in better visibility at night when you are driving and surely it will increase your safety even when it is raining. HID bulbs can also last longer and uses much less energy than a halogen bulb two thousand hours versus just four hundred fifty hours for the halogen bulb. It may be more expensive but it is most advisable especially to the newer models of cars. If you want safety driving and if you want to make your car look cooler do not hesitate to install HID lights on your car, you will not regret it.
