Buy Honda Replacement Headlights at All Discount Parts
How Do Headlights Work?
Simply put, headlights illuminate the road in front of you to make it more visible during dark driving conditions like during a storm or at night, and some are better at it than others—like these new advanced types of headlights:
- Halogen Headlights: Like a normal lightbulb, halogen headlights are filament based, but their bulb is filled with halogen gas. This allows tungsten atoms to be redeposited on the filament and increase the lifetime of the bulb over traditional headlights. The halogen gas also helps brighten your headlights.
- HID/Xenon Headlights: HID/xenon headlights pack the bulb with xenon gas, which lights up brightly in the presence of electricity, sort of like how a neon sign works. This results in a crisp, clear look at the road that extends significantly further ahead of the vehicle than traditional headlights. These are up to 300% brighter than halogen bulbs.
- LED Headlights: Rather than use bulbs, LED headlights take advantage of low-energy light emitting diodes that have a lifetime far longer than your typical bulb while delivering consistent bright and clear headlights. LED looks to be the future of headlight technology at the moment.
- Adaptive Headlights: Have you ever wished you could actually see the road ahead of you instead of just where your car is pointing? Then adaptive headlights are the way to go. They notice changes in the road and adapt to it, swiveling left or right to illuminate your actual path instead of just what's straight ahead of your vehicle.
How Long Should Headlights Last?
While we would like to give you an estimate, the fact is that it depends greatly on when and how you drive, and what kind of headlights you have. We do have some estimates on just how many hours of life your headlights should have in them, though, so that should help you get an idea of when to expect to replace them:
- Halogen headlights can last as long as 1,000 hours or as short as 450 hours
- HID headlights typically last about 2,000 hours
- LED headlights are so new that proper lifespans have yet to be estimated for them
Aftermarket Headlights vs. OEM Headlights
As always, we recommend you only use OEM parts in your Honda vehicle, and that includes headlights. Can you buy aftermarket headlights? Certainly. Are aftermarket headlights cheaper than OEM? Sometimes. But aftermarket lights are not made with your vehicle in mind and often burn out much, much faster than OEM headlights. If that isn't enough of an incentive, all Honda OEM parts come with a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty that is redeemable at any certified Honda dealership.
