Third-Party Motor Lighting


When do you decide to install new-age lighting in your car? Well, it’s fairly easy to do if you think about it and although the replacements might cost you in the short term, they are a great investment that benefit you over time. There are multiple light systems in the average motor vehicle that could do with such a fixer-upper: the head lights, fog lights, brake lights, turn signals and tail lights but most importantly is the gauge set on your car’s interior. Modernity defines for us the basic foundation of dealing with technology; that it be earth-friendly and cost-effective.

LED lights have become synonymous with such green-friendly endeavors and are especially a great alternative for a vehicle’s gauge set as they can be installed even in classic gauge instruments without much ado. This is simply because they can be wired the same way the older incandescent bulbs. A slight setback would be if you wanted to be able to dim the dash lights, which would cost you extra to get an additional dimmer module because the original incandescent dimmer switch is made to dim incandescent, which draw over 1 amp of current while the energy-efficient bulbs would draw only 0.1 amp. Therefore, because the amount of current the LED bulbs is far lesser than the incandescent lights, the original incandescent dimmer will not make a noticeable difference to the LED light output. A LED dimmer switch is preferred to adjust the voltage to the LED bulbs in order to create dimming. In the end you will enjoy the essence of LED lighting as your dashboard tools and settings glow better than the incandescent variety – e.g.

Additionally, if you are worried about your car’s battery life when you want to keep multiple vehicle systems running, LED headlights would be a great first step in the right direction. LED bulbs drain less than halogen-powered lamps which use almost 5 amps compared to the energy-efficient 1.4 amps. They are also brighter and have a more focused throw on the road which is an additional advantage to night-travelers who want to avoid unexpectedly bumping into things. Generally, the halogen bulbs prove superior to the LED bulbs only on the fact that they are less harsh to oncoming drivers and one would have to consider this before replacing their older lights. As for brake lights and backup lights, which are a priority when one desire to be seen over short-ranges LED lights are to be considered.

The Interior lighting of your vehicle is by far a crucial part of the ways you can introduce smart-lighting to your car and since LED lights are available in softer, warm and brighter hues, you will find that these lights have an almost transformative effect on the look and feel of an average vehicle. Using installed devices such as refrigerators, GPS and radios becomes a more interactive, softer design than the classic incandescent lighting. And most importantly, these lights have an appealing wow-effect and I believe when embraced they can efficiently improve lighting
