Differences, Criteria and Points Worth Looking Out For When You Purchase Headlights
Compatibility - Different car models use different headlights. Make sure when shopping online, you select the correct headlights for your vehicle. You cannot expect to replace a round headlight with something square or almond-shaped, right? The best way to ensure you get this is to buy from a reputable company that specializes in BMW lighting.
Brightness - One of the most obvious and desirable criteria for BMW headlights is their brightness. When looking at the brightness of a headlight, you will want to check how many lumens the headlight produces. The higher the lumen count, the brighter it is – or more correctly, the further away the light can be seen. For BMW headlights, you want to be able to see the road straight ahead of you. That means you will need good focusing lenses for both high and low beams. These lenses condense and direct light, so that you get more illumination where you need it. A bright headlight with bad lenses looks dimmer and can cause a whitewash effect that reduces visibility and can confuse oncoming drivers as to your precise location.
Price and Value - BMW Dealers (commonly referred to as "Stealers") will charge you an arm and a leg for a direct replacement. If you are going for a 100% OEM replacement, this is your only option. Luckily, aftermarket BMW headlights are not only better designed and often have more features (such as built in angel eyes) but you can get them for far less than the dealer.

BMW Headlights – Form and Function
The housing is as important as the bulbs because the housing (or "headlight assembly" is what projects and focuses your light appropriately. When purchasing your headlights make sure that they are a direct replica of OEM size and shape to ensure the light patter will be correct.
In addition to helping you see the road, your headlights are the first thing that can warn oncoming traffic about your presence. Driving without headlights or with broken headlights is simply asking for trouble. Like the infamous BMW kidney grille, the headlights are unmistakably recognizable works of art. Finding replacement headlights is not particularly difficult, and even the standard replacements work well. However, if you really want to improve driving performance, then you will want to upgrade your headlights to something better than the standard.
Halogen, High Intensity Discharge and BMW Xenon Headlights:
Different technologies bring a variety of options to the table. We start off with halogen lights. These lights are quite bright, but they tend to consume more energy than other types of lights. That’s because halogen lights produce a lot of heat, which is technically wasted energy. Most cars come with halogen lights. Upgrading from BMW halo headlights to other types of headlights will decrease overall power consumption, or increase brightness for the same amount of power.
High Intensity Discharge lamps, unlike halogen lamps, do not use filaments to produce light. Instead, these use short arcs of electricity between two electrodes, exciting the molecules of the surrounding gases sealed inside the lamp. The result is a greater level of illumination per unit of energy, with less heat produced. There are several types of HID lamps, and they differ mostly in the gases used inside the lamps. These are often seen on high-end vehicles.Xenon lamps are a type of HID lamp, and they might just be the most popular kind of HID lamp for headlights. Xenon lights use xenon gas, which allows the lamp to achieve maximum brightness in a shorter amount of time (other types of HID take longer to “warm up”). The result is a characteristic bluish-white light, unlike the yellowish light of halogen lamps.
What Are LED (Light-Emitting Diode) Headlights?
The development of LED headlights has been very active since 2004, but they aren’t quite ready for street driving as yet. They actually produce a significant amount of heat, but not on the end with the light – rather, it is their bases that get hot. While these problems are being solved, LEDs are not popular as headlights. However, they do make for great accent lights that can help you define your own style.The power advantages of LEDs are great, and could potentially lower your headlights’ power consumption greatly. For now though, we can’t quite put these on our cars.

I recently purchased your anti flicker capacitors for my Bimmer. I WAS VERY HAPPY with how fast you got those out to me and they work beautifully!! I certainly look forward to shopping more with Stealth Auto in the near future. Thanks again.Bob, Kansas City
After viewing Stealth Auto on Youtube many times, I WAS REALLY IMPRESSED with the knowledge that Todd was giving out and the demonstrations in the videos. I call to place an order and guess who answered? Yes, Todd himself! That was the coolest thing to me, to be able to speak with the owner on the phone. Todd took the time out to find what style I was looking for on my 325ci, 2001 bimmer. And his advice worked!Kendal M., Toronto
