Can I Replace My Xenon Bulbs with LED?

 You can replace xenon headlight bulbs with led headlight bulbs and this is why you should...

There has been a lot of talk lately about replacing xenon headlight bulbs with LED headlight bulbs. Many car owners are curious about whether they can make the switch and if there are any benefits to doing so. In this article, we will explore the differences between OEM xenon headlight bulbs and OEM replacement LED headlight bulbs, as well as the benefits of making the switch and the factors to consider when doing so.

With recent advances in the technology behind OEM LED Headlight bulbs it's now easier than ever to replace your standard xenon bulbs with led bulbs. Prior to these advances it was a rather difficult task involving quite alot of modifications needed to be done, including altering your headlights wiring and in some cases removing expensive OEM equipment like Xenons Ballasts and replacing with bulky alternatives.

Xenon vs LED Lights

Xenon lights, also known as HID (High Intensity Discharge) lights, are high-intensity lights that produce a bright white light. They have been used in the automotive industry for several decades and are still widely used today. LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights, on the other hand, are relatively new to the automotive industry and are gaining popularity due to their energy efficiency and long lifespan.

The main difference between xenon and LED lights is the way they produce light. Xenon lights use an electric arc to ignite the gas in the bulb, which produces a bright light. LED lights use a semiconductor material to produce light, which is much more energy-efficient and has a longer lifespan than xenon lights.

Benefits of Switching from Xenon to LED

There are several benefits to switching from xenon headlights to LED headlights, including:

  • Improved Visibility: Oue OEM LED headlight bulbs produce a bright white light upto 350% brighter than standard xenon bulbs, making it easier to see in bad lighting conditions like unlit roads, fog and torrential rain. With this improved visibility on the road its likely to reduce the risk of accidents.
  • Instant Power: Unlike xenon headlight bulbs, our LED alternatives reach full power in milliseconds. We have seen some xenon bulbs take over 20 seconds before reaching full power.

  • Longer Lifespan: LED bulbs have a much longer lifespan than xenon bulbs, which means that you will have to replace them less often. This is especially important for car owners who want to save money on maintenance costs over time.

  • Easy Installation: Our OEM LED Headlight Bulbs are 100% Plug and Play, which means that you can make the switch without having to take your car to a professional to hack your headlights to bits.

Factors to Consider When Switching to LED Lights

While there are many benefits to switching from xenon to LED, there are also some factors to consider before making the switch. These include:

  • Compatibility: Not all OEM LED headlight bulbs are made the same and as we have already mentioned some require extensive modifications to work correctly. So it is important to make sure that the LED lights you are considering are compatible with your car and are 100% Plug & Play.

  • Quality: Again, there are many different brands and types of OEM replacement LED bulbs available, and not all of them are of the same quality. It is important to buy your OEM LED bulbs from a reputable seller and that they are of good quality in order to ensure that they will last as long as possible and perform well.


In conclusion, there are many benefits to switching from xenon to LED, including longer lifespan, improved visibility, and easy installation. However, it is important to consider factors such as compatibility & quality before making the switch.
