5 reasons you should upgrade your headlight bulbs...right now!

Here are our top 5 reasons why you should upgrade your headlight bulbs today! Once you upgrade your existing headlight bulbs, for either a maximum performance or styling option, you'll never look back.

Reason 1 - Shine a light!

Replace your factory fitted standard car bulbs for maximum performance upgrade headlight bulbs, and you won't believe what a difference it makes. These upgrade car bulbs can more than double the amount of light on the road, and, with this big increase in light output, you'll find street signs and hazards are illuminated sooner. Plus, there'll be no more squinting-induced headaches! If this sounds like the upgrade car bulb for you, you should check out Philips X-treme Vision and OSRAM Night Breaker Unlimited, our two biggest sellers. We put the two up against each other in this handy article. Osram Night Break Unlimited vs Philips X-treme Vision.


Reason 2 - Safe as houses

With more light comes more responsibility... just kidding, we mean more safety of course! Upgrade headlight bulbs allow you to see and be seen (cliché, we know, but very true). Night time driving can be really challenging, and maintaining your focus on those dark roads can prove difficult. Upgrade your headlight bulbs and you'll improve your on road safety immensely. Again, maximum performance bulbs tick the box for maximizing safety on the road so definitely check out Philips X-treme Vision and OSRAM Night Breaker Unlimited.     


Reason 3 - Get the look!

Yellow headlight bulbs: let's face it, they're pretty unattractive! By upgrading to styling headlights (or blue headlight bulbs as they're often called), you'll get a crisp white light which totally trumps the colour produced by your bog standard headlight bulbs. Our top picks in this category are Philips Blue Vision Ultra and OSRAM Cool Blue Intense. Both deliver a much whiter light (whilst remaining road legal) to instantly transform the look of your car.    


Reason 4 - Fail to prepare...

...prepare to fail. If you've had your car for a good few years, you should definitely consider replacing your car headlight bulbs before you get caught out. After all, nobody wants to be pulled over by the police! Plus, there's no better time to think about upgrading your headlight bulbs rather than just replacing them with standard. We always recommend changing both bulbs at the same time to maintain a balanced look, and you'll find most bulbs sold on PowerBulbs come in twin packs anyway. 


Reason 5 - Don't just take our word for it!

Every year, many of the headlight bulbs we stock are entered in to the Auto Express Best Buy awards. The latest winner comes in the form of the Philips X-treme Vision range which has proven very popular over the years with our customers. Here's what Auto Express say about the range:

'X-treme Vision claims 100 per cent more light – less than some – but is the clear winner here. There was a bit of a difference between the bulbs, yet both put in a great performance. Key was the light hotspot stretching up to the 75 metre mark. No rival could match it at that distance, and it was the same story at 50 metres.'
