Are these replacement bulbs legal?

The bulbs we sell are manufactured by our partner, they are made specifically for the challenges of Australia and the Australian market. So yes thet are legal.

I have plastic lenses, will the bulbs cause damage to them?

Our bulbs are designed as direct replacement for your car. They have UV protection for use with plastic lenses. Remember the temperature of the bulb refers to the colour not the heat. We aim to provide lights with excellent visibility.

Are xenon replacement bulbs the same as the ones you see in some new expensive cars with blue lights?

No. These are known as HID systems. High Intensity Discharge's light output is over 3 to 4 times greater than a halogen bulb, with less heat and power consumption. HID requires an electronic control gear and starter to momentarily apply high voltage to a capsule of inert gases (including xenon) creating an intense arc of white light. HID emits brilliant white light. A 35W HID produces a light closer to natural sunlight compared to a 55w halogen.

Do I need to modify my car in any way to use these bulbs?

With the exceptions the high wattage bulbs, no these bulbs work on the same power ratings as your existing bulbs so will require no modifications. The high wattage bulbs which may require you to upgrade the fuse to a higher rating. This will be clearly stated in on the sales page. Please contact an auto electrician .

Is HID xenon Legal?

Unfortunately no aftermarket HID kit is strictly road legal as you are changing the lighting system (from halogen to gas discharge).

Will these bulbs fit my vehicle?

Our bulbs are suitable most cars made after 1980, if in doubt check owner manual or contact us.

What are xenon replacement bulbs?

A Xenon replacement bulb is a halogen bulb that has been filled with extra Xenon gas. This extra Xenon gas, combined with better filament technology, gives a greater light output. Xenon replacement bulbs come in generally 2 different styles. Those geared towards styling (with the blue tint), and those designed specifically for maximum light output. Bulbs with a blue coating will naturally emit less light than the equivelant bulb without a blue coating. Because of this, the maximum vision bulbs can reach up to 80% improved vision, whereas the blue coated styling bulbs only reach up to 30% improved vision.
