for September 2023

Headlight kits are products designed to upgrade headlights on cars, trucks, SUVs or other vehicles. They typically consist of a headlight bulb and new housing that replaces the original. Headlight kits are easy to install and can be installed in as little as 15 minutes.

Headlight kits are an inexpensive way to improve safety at night, by improving your visibility to other drivers and pedestrians. Headlight kits are also a cost effective way to extend the life of your car's headlights, which can last anywhere from 3,000 to 10,000 miles, depending on the model.

Headlight kits come in a variety of types, including halogen, xenon and LED. Halogen headlight kits are the most affordable option, while LED headlight kits are more expensive, but offer better visibility. Xenon headlight kits are the most expensive option, but offer the best visibility.

We evaluate headlight kits for performance, including brightness, quality, durability, and fit. We also evaluate ease of use, including installation, and how easy it is to replace the headlight bulb. Here are the best headlight kits to buy in 2022, according to testing and popular reviews:

Fahren H11/H9/H8 LED Headlight Bulbs, 120W 20000 Lumens Bright LED Headlights, 6500K Cool White LED Headlight Conversion Kit IP68 Waterproof, Quick Installation, Pack of 2

Fahren H11/H9/H8 LED Headlight Bulbs

by Fahren

OVER 50,000-HOURS LIFESPAN: Take aviation aluminum as the main body has a good heat dissipation, the carved heat sink designed and 1,2000RPM turbo cool fan provide super cooling ability. This H11 LED headlight can ensure a life span up to more than 50,000 hours, reducing the need to replace the bulb and reducing the number of times you will be in the dark with a burnt out headlight.

These bulbs are light years brighter than the halogen bulbs they replace, and the beam is more focused and far-reaching. The bulbs are bright enough to light up an entire highway, and they last much longer than halogen bulbs. The installation is really easy, too, and the instructions were easy to follow. The bulbs were fully bright right out of the box, but they took a while to reach their full brightness. The bulbs also have a slight tint to them, and the light coming out of them is a bit bluer than halogen bulbs. The bulbs give off a lot of heat, so make sure you install them in a cool, well-ventilated space. The bulbs come with a 2-year warranty, but the manufacturer made a fairly small mistake on the warranty form, so we've contacted them to see what they can do for us.

Fahren H11/H9/H8 LED Headlight Bulbs, 60W 10000 Lumens Super Bright LED Headlights Conversion Kit 6500K Cool White IP68 Waterproof, Pack of 2

Fahren H11/H9/H8 LED Headlight Bulbs

by Fahren

10 Minutes Easy Installation - Almost 1:1 mini design same as halogen, perfectly fit into your housing and factory sockets without any modification, just plug and play.

The Fahren H11/H9/H8 LED Headlight Bulbs have the best combination of brightness, beam pattern, and price of any LED headlight bulbs we've tested. They produce bright, white light that's 300% brighter than halogen, and it's evenly distributed across the beam. At 30 lumens per watt, they're also more power efficient than bulbs with lower lumen per watt ratings. The bulbs feature a hollow, carved aluminum heat sink that dissipates heat more efficiently than bulbs with solid heat sinks, and they have a 1,2000RPM turbo cool fan that accelerates airflow through the heat sink. The bulbs also have an IP68 waterproof rating, which means they're rated to survive immersion in water, so they're a great upgrade to stock halogen headlights. They're also much brighter than the standard, 40W LED headlights that come with most cars, so they'll provide brighter lighting and better visibility in low-light conditions. The bulbs also feature a long-life, 5,0000-hour lifespan, and a dual-power switch that lets you choose between 30 and 60 watts. The bulbs are compatible with 98% of vehicles, and they work with a CAN bus decoder for vehicles that don't have a CAN bus. The bulbs have a 3-year warranty, and they have a 1-year warranty on the bulb itself.

Fahren 9005/HB3 High Beam 9006/HB4 Beam Low LED Headlight Bulbs Combo

by Fahren

More than 5,0000 Hours Lifetime: Whole aviation aluminum body, unique hollow carved heat sink design and 1,2000RPM turbo cool fan provide super cooling ability, which ensures a longer lifespan up to 5,0000 hours.

These bulbs are brighter and whiter than their predecessors, and beam patterns are very focused. These bulbs are easy to install, and they work with almost every car made in the last 30 years. The only drawback is that they don't produce any blue light, so if you're driving in tunnels, they won't be as useful as halogen bulbs (which produce enough blue light to pass through tunnels), but if you're driving on unlit roads, these bulbs are perfect. These bulbs also produce less heat than incandescent bulbs, so you won't have to worry about burning your hands if you accidentally touch them. The only drawback is that they're a little on the expensive side, but they're worth it.

When buying headlights, it's important to make sure they fit your vehicle. Many headlights are too small or too large, and they don't fit in the sockets. That poses a problem, because headlights don't last forever, and you may have to replace your headlights multiple times. The 9005 9006 LED headlight kit from Nilight is easy to install. It fits perfectly in your factory headlight sockets, and it's small enough and light enough not to take up much space in your headlights. The headlight bulbs are bright, but they're not blinding. They fit in most vehicles without issue, and they don't cause radio interference. The Nilight 9005 9006 LED headlight kit is an easy way to upgrade your headlights and increase your visibility at night.

This 9008 LED headlight can ensure a life span up to more than 50,000 hours, reducing the need to replace the bulb and reducing the number of times you will be in the dark with a burnt out headlight.

The Fahren 9008/H13 LED Headlight Bulbs, 120W 20000 Lumens Bright LED Headlights, 6500K Cool White LED Headlight Conversion Kit IP68 Waterproof, Quick Installation, Pack of 2 are a good choice for replacing your old halogen headlights. They are brighter, whiter, and emit less heat than halogen bulbs, which make them ideal for running in hot climates. Our testing found them to be brighter than the Sylvania 55W H1 headlights and 35W H3 headlights, which we tested as our previous top picks. The brightness difference varies from model to model, but they usually put out about 2,000 to 3,000 lumens, which is 3 to 5 times brighter than the 900 lumens produced by the 55W H1 and 35W H3. That brightness difference is important, because not only is it brighter, but it also makes it less likely to blind other drivers and pedestrians. Our testing also showed that the 9008/H13 led headlight bulbs produce more light than our previous top picks, the 55W Sylvania H1 and 35W H3, over a wide range of light levels. Because of their brightness, color, and size, the 9008/H13 led headlight bulbs are a good choice for replacing your old halogen headlights.

Long Lifespan: The H11 9005 LED light bulbs adopt whole aviation aluminum body, unique hollow carved heat sink design and 15,000RPM turbo cool fan provide super cooling ability, keep longer lifespan up to 60,000 hours.

The 9005/HB3 bulbs we tested were brighter than the competition, offering 80 watts of output and 22,000 lumens of brightness. They're also much brighter than the 9005/HB2 model we tested, which offered 60 watts of output and 16,000 lumens. The 9005/HB3 bulbs offer a wider and farther range light on the road, and they cast a brighter light than our previous top pick, the CREE XHP50. However, the 9005/HB3 model we tested had a slight yellow tint compared to our top pick, the XHP50. The 9005/HB2 model we tested was better in that regard, though it was still slightly yellower than the XHP50. Overall, the 9005/HB3 bulbs offer brighter, safer, and cleaner light than our previous top pick, and we think they should appeal to most users. The 9005/HB2 bulbs we tested are still a good buy, though, and are cheaper than the 9005/HB3 bulbs we tested.

3M Headlight Restoration Kit, 2-Pack, Easy Heavy Duty Car Headlight Restoration System

3M Headlight Restoration Kit

by 3M AAD Consumer (Domestic)

Easy to use choose a kit with no tools required, or for use with a common household drill

The 3M Headlight Restoration Kit is easy to use and does a great job of restoring headlights and taillights to like-new condition. It does so without damaging the plastic lens surface, so it's safe to use on headlights, taillights, fog lights, directional lights, license plate lights, and more. The kit comes with two sanding discs, a small bottle of wax protectant, and masking tape, so it's all you need to restore headlights and taillights. The discs are coarse enough to sand away years of yellowing, buildup, and scratches, but not so coarse that they leave scratches on the lens. The kit includes a sanding pad, so you don't need to use a drill. The kit's instructions are fairly easy to follow, and the entire process takes just a few minutes. The kit also removes scratches light enough to allow you to see through them, which is great for night driving. The kit includes a bonus sanding disc, a wax stick, and a bottle of protective cleaner, so even if you don't use the entire kit, you'll have plenty of extras for future projects.

3M Headlight Restoration Kit, 2-Pack, Easy Heavy Duty Car Headlight Restoration System, No Tools Required

3M Headlight Restoration Kit

by 3M AAD Consumer (Domestic)

Easy to use No tools required

The 3M Headlight Restoration Kit is an easy-to-use tool that makes headlight restoration quick and easy. The kit comes with everything you need to restore headlights and taillights without damage. The tape should be applied with a medium or heavy tackiness, and the discs should be sanded with medium grit. The kit comes with enough sandpaper to sand the entire headlight and surrounding area (including the lens), as well as bonnets, bumpers and tail lights. The sandpaper is good quality and lasts a long time, and the tape is reusable. Once you're done sanding, the kit comes with three products: a clear, matte wax coating, and a clear, matte UV coating. The UV coating is easy to apply and dries clear, while the wax coating is easy to apply, doesn't bubble or peel, and is less prone to scratching than the UV coating. The kit doesn't come with any type of cleaning solution, so you'll need to either use water or a cleaning solution to clean your headlight lens before using the restoration kit. The kit is convenient enough that you won't need to take a rental car to a body shop, but it's a bit more expensive than the $40 alternatives we tested.

Ventilation Breather Design: If there is moisture or water in the headlight, please open the ventilation breather when headlight is on, then the moisture or water will disappear within short time and headlights can work normally again and are as bright as before, which can make the lifespan much longer. At present only Vplus and Partsam products has this function.

The Partsam 4x6 LED Headlights (H4656, H4651, H4652, H4666) are a great upgrade for any classic vehicle with sealed beam headlights. These bulbs are brighter than halogen bulbs and significantly brighter than HID kits. The housing is shatter-resistant and made of durable aluminum, and the light output is 55% brighter than halogen bulbs. They're very bright, and they last about three times as long. These bulbs also fit most newer vehicles, and you can use them with H4/9003 connectors, which are compatible with most vehicles, including most Jeeps, trucks, and SUVs. These replacement bulbs also mount easily, and the wires are long enough to reach any location on your vehicle. The bulbs are IP67 rated, which means they can withstand water and dust. They come with a 1-year warranty, which is enough time for most customers. The bulbs are also very reasonably priced: they cost about 40% less than comparable halogen bulbs, and 70% less than comparable HID kits.
