How do I find out which light bulb to order?
With so many makes, models and trim levels of vehicles, it is important that you check and make sure what type of bulb your particular vehicle needs. You can find the type of bulbs your specific vehicle uses in several locations. One place is the head light lens; the bulb type will be molded into it. Another place is on the bulb itself. The bulb type and wattage will be printed or molded into the base. The vehicle owner’s manual may also tell you what type of bulb you need for your headlights and / or fog lights. When in doubt, check with our eBay store categories listing or store search or your dealer or owner's manual.

Except for shipping charges, we will give a full refund within 30 days for reasonable matter. so you could not ask for an easier way to try our products!

How difficult are these bulbs to install?
They are all direct replacement bulbs and mount just like your original equipment bulbs. Most bulbs can be replaced without tools in just a few minutes.

What should I do if I touch the bulb?
Never touch the bulb glass with your hand or skin as oil from your hands can shorten the life of the bulb. If you do touch the bulb, remove these oils with alcohol and a very soft cotton cloth. (used hand glove equipment)

How long do they last?
Under normal conditions these bulbs will last a little shorter than your factory bulbs because they are so much brighter they sacrifice life for light. Off road or in racing conditions they will last shorter still.

Are these bulbs Legal for highway use?
Mot of Aftermarket light bulbs do not have D.O.T.'s regulations LABEL or MARK for brightness and are labeled for "off road / show car use only." However, I have never witnessed the authorities remove a bulb to check for a D.O.T. sticker, have you? But it might get pull over by cop as brightness of light bulb issue. That will depend on how your set car's beam point position. This will be OWNER RISK responsibility.  

How do HiproPower make my headlights brighter?
If you stare directly into the sun you will see that it produces an extremely white light. Sun light is
4850°K, and most HID systems produce about 6000°K. Most vehicles are equipped with standard halogen bulbs with a light output around 3200°K. standard Super White bulbs produce about 4500°K and HiproPower Super White are about 5900°K. The difference is huge. This increase was achieved two ways. First, these bulbs use a more tightly wound spiral filament made of finer wire in a precise mixture of halogen and xenon gasses that is under much higher pressure than a normal halogen bulb. Second, the presence of xenon gas under high pressure provides an increased rate of halogen regeneration resulting in a very intense light. Depending on the design, a 55-watt version of this type of bulb can produce the equivalent output to an 85~100watt or higher standard halogen bulb but without the amperage draw and heat of the standard 85-watt bulb. These new high-output bulbs are becoming increasingly popular because they offer amazing output at relatively low amperage draws and heat generation. The other important technology at work here is the tinted glass - a "High Intensity White" coating. This coating has a pale bluish tint to the glass to filter out the yellow spectrum light producing a light that simulates the ultra white color temperature of H.I.D. LAMPs. This tint does not make the bulbs brighter on its own but makes the light output whiter.
