For full testing details and how we came to the results show here, see how we test here. Data last updated 5/24/2019.

If you would like to see a specific kit tested, please contact us!

Remember to select the correct bulb type for your vehicle.

Stay up to date with our Latest Testing & News!


† These kits run a higher wattage than the vehicle may be designed for, so heat may be increased. It is recommended to upgrade to a ceramic connector from plastic to avoid melting.

HALOGEN BULB INSTALLATION TIP: Wear gloves, NEVER touch the glass with your bare hands! Oil drastically shortens the life of the bulb. Use a microfiber cloth and rubbing alcohol to clean the glass if necessary.
