We've tested 100's of products to find only the best and weed out the rest

You can choose any bulb or upgrade type below to find full reviews on each product. We break it down into bulb type categories.
Aftermarket LED for those who are looking for the latest in lighting technology. LED upgrades are typically best for reflector style headlight and fog lights but can work great in other applications.
Halogen bulb if you want to stick with the same bulb type but are want to see what the best replacement bulb is.
Aftermarket HID has been around for some time, and remains very popular. They are best for projector style headlights, which bring a large upgrade over halogen. Just try to stay away from installing into a reflector style headlight.
And last, we have OEM Xenon, which are another replacement style bulb like halogen, but a different technology. Moving to an upgraded Xenon package can bring a much whiter color as well as a brighter output.

We broke it down into 3 categories for each bulb/kit type.
Recommended brings you ONLY our top recommended products based on all of our testing. This doesn't mean the other options are not great, but instead just simplifies things for those who don't want to compare specs.
Reviews are our full article and video reviews for people who enjoy reading or watching. The most recent will be at the top for each video and article category.
And the most important (in our opinion) are the charts. We list nearly every aspect we test and lay it out in a simple to reach chart for EVERY (currently available) product. This gives people the option to compare color, size, brightness, cost, and so on.
