Why Choose HID Headlights?
This is the most common question asked by customers and the easiest one to answer. In short with HIDs you can actually see at night! We find this to be the number one reason customers are looking to upgrade to HID Headlights. HID headlights are up to 400% brighter than the standard halogen headlights found in most vehicles. Our research as well as independently supported studies show people have trouble seeing anything at night when using the standard factory equipped headlight system. Not sure how safe that is. What we do find is once a customer installs their new HID conversion it transforms their night driving experience. Once installed it is hard to imagine how you could have ever driven without HID Headlights. Your new kit virtually turn nighttime into daytime and makes street markings and signs come to life. No more straining to read the street signs as well as other traffic safety devices.
Not only do HID's offer the great added benefit of more visibility at night but they also consume much less overall energy while operating than a standard halogen bulb. This lowers the amount of total energy needed to actually use your headlights which saves on gas as well as helps to be more Green!

Measuring Voltage on Your vehicle...
Here you will find instructions on measuring the voltage on your vehicles factory harness to ensure proper input voltage on your HID Kit. If issues during installation occur this should be one of the first troubleshooting steps in order to ensure that fuses have not blown, voltage is not too high or too low, or voltage is not unstable as your HID Kit requires a stable input voltage of approximately 12v DC - 13.5v DC.
Here you will find information on what an HID relay harness is used for and when you want to install one with your HID Kit. HID Auto Vision recommends a relay for EVERY HID Kit installation but it is NOT required for 90% of vehicles. A relay harness will allow for more longevity out of your HID Kit because it helps provide a more consistent flow of power to the kit thus allowing for less fluctuations in power which in turn creates less wear on internal ballast components.
