Replacement HID Bulbs
Once the domain of luxury cars, High Intensity Discharge (HID) bulbs are now fitted as standard to many vehicles.
It is estimated that almost a million cars on the road in the UK are already fitted with HID bulbs. That's why at Kwik Fit we now stock replacement HID bulbs for fitment to a wide range of vehicles.
Xenon HID Technology
Unlike conventional auto bulbs, HID bulbs have no filaments which are susceptible to vibration. Instead, HID bulbs feature a sealed glass capsule of xenon gas. Two metal electrodes within the bulb allow a high voltage to arc across, igniting the xenon gas which produces the light.
start-up voltage required to ignite the gas is typically 26,000 volts. While it
is perfectly safe to change HID bulbs by following simple step by step guides,
if the prospect of working with around 26,000 volts is daunting, pop in to your
local Kwik fit centre where our trained technicians will change them for you.
At Kwik Fit we recommend and stock replacement HID bulbs from Ring. Ring is a leading European lighting brand, producing high-quality vehicle lighting solutions for over 40 years. HID bulbs from Ring are of Original Equipment standard and come with a 3-year guarantee.
