How to choose the best aftermarket bulbs

Aftermarket bulbs offer the best alternative to OEM bulbs. There are plenty of options to choose from when picking aftermarket bulbs. The most common bulbs available include HIDs, LEDs, and halogens.

Always make sure that all the bulbs you buy are legal in your area. Each bulb type serves a different purpose. There are aftermarket bulbs designed to offer light brighter than factory bulbs. Others are built to give off a different color and enhance your car’s look. Higher temperature colors will give out deeper hues than lower temperature colors.

Aftermarket bulbs cost way much less than factory bulbs. They are also designed to improve vision in the dark. The only problem is that most could be illegal in certain states and when fitted incorrectly, they could be dangerous for use.
