There is one main fault to halogen headlights -- the headlight lenses tend to get cloudy and oxidized from UV rays and normal wear. If your headlight lenses are cloudy, try a headlight restoration kit to restore them back to their crystal-clear factory condition. If your headlights are still dimmer than you'd like, consider replacing them or find LED headlights that can do the job. Shop Advance Auto Parts for OEM-quality replacement headlights from brands like Bosch and Sylvania.
In the 80s, industry standards changed, and automakers were able to start using European-style halogen headlights instead of the old-style sealed-beam lights. Automotive stylists and designers loved it, since acrylic headlight lenses lent themselves to aerodynamic shapes much better than sealed-beams.
Unfortunately, it was discovered that acrylic lenses also became cloudy and weathered from exposure to road grit, the elements and the sun's UV rays. Cloudy lenses can really cut your headlights' effectiveness and compromise visibility at night. Fortunately, Advance Auto Parts stocks headlight restoration kits that are easy to use and can get your poor visibility problems cleared up in no time.
A vehicle headlamp allows you to see and be seen. For maximum visibility, you want headlamps functioning properly. Even though they might appear satisfactory, vehicle headlamps lose brightness over time and should be replaced before they burn out. Advance Auto Parts has the latest headlamp technology so you can see further.
