Light emitting diodes – more commonly known as LED lights – are relatively new to the automotive industry and yet, the demand for these lights is high and we’re not surprised! Apart from providing better visibility at night, LEDs are more durable than traditional halogen and HID headlights. What’s more, LEDs last longer than most headlights. A single LED can last up to 11 years while HID’s average lifespan is 4 to 6 years.
LEDs emit bright, vivid light and they do not require warm up so they reach their full light as soon as you turn them on. In addition, LEDs will last for a long time so they may be expensive initially but these bulbs pay for themselves over time.
Switching to LEDs is a great decision if you want to save more $$$ in the long run and give your car a refreshed new look. But just like any headlight, LEDs come in various types and it’s important to choose the right bulb type according to your needs. In today’s post, we are listing down the most common types of auto LEDs you can use to give your car an upgrade:
The most common of all auto LEDs is the headlight bulb. LED headlight bulb is typically purchased as a kit so all the components you need is included in the set. What makes LED headlights better than traditional headlights is that installation is a breeze. There’s no need to tinker with your electric circuit or modify your headlight socket in any way to replace your worn headlights, just stick the bulb and you’re done.
LED dome lights are often used as interior lights to give a car that enviable customized look. These LEDs come in an array of colors, including red, white, purple, pink, and blue. If you’d like to give the interiors of your car a nice splash of color then switch your old dome lights to multicolored LEDs. Dome lights come in tubes, strips and projectors so just choose what you like and have a professional install the lights for you.

LED taillights add value and functionality to your car while giving it a unique look! And there are so many ways to give your taillights an upgrade. You can replace your HIDs or halogens with LEDs, install runner lights below the tailgate for something extra or strip light on the back of your car. The possibilities are endless!
Underbody LED Lights
Neon lights are typically used as underbody lights but you can replace traditional neon lights with LEDs and the overall look will be just as fabulous! Neon lights aren’t meant for heavy duty use and they are prone to burn out within months after installation. LEDs have a longer lifespan and they can mimic the look of underbody neon lights. Since LEDs come in a variety of colors to choose from, you can mix and match different colors to develop a more customized lighting for your car’s underbody.
