Say you want to customize your vehicle. Give it a new lift, you know? One of the easiest ways to do that is by buying an aftermarket LED headlight kit for your vehicle. Before you go that route, it’s important to explore all of the other options available to you, to be sure you are making the right choice, however. There are lots of other types of headlight kits available, too, each with its pros and cons.

Projector headlights are designed to provide excellent illumination for the road, which is great if you do a lot of nighttime driving because it provides superior visibility. If that’s a major concern for you, consider this option over the LED headlight.  Projector headlights will also scratch the vehicle customization itch, too, because they come in lots of cool designs that will give your can an awesome look you won’t find in your neighbour’s driveway.

Another aftermarket option is the euro headlight. These are designed to give your car a look that is similar to the factory headlights (in other words, not a noticeably totally custom look) but in a much sleeker and more updated way. Euro headlight kits don’t come with the project house like projector lights do (hence their name).  They do, however, still offer great nighttime road illumination, especially when combined with the right bulb. They are a more affordable option than LED headlight kits. Euro lights are also less expensive than projector lights, but still offer an improvement in terms of both a custom look and in illumination.

If you do want to go the LED route, there are lots of options available. One popular option is the R8 style of lights. Created in honour of Audi’s iconic R8, these lights feature an LED strip across the bottom of the headlight, which comes already installed inside the headlight assembly. These lights offer a truly custom look for our vehicle.

You can also purchase a headlight kit that is compatible with your factory issue system.

When it comes time to purchase new headlights, whether because of necessity or whether you simply want a new look for your car, there’s an awesome option out there for you at virtually every price point. In terms of installation, in most cases the process is pretty straightforward, but if you aren’t comfortable doing it yourself you can either look for an online tutorial (there are lots!) or ask your auto technician for help. They will almost always be only to glad to lend you their opinion and assistance.
