Types of Honda Civic Headlights
There are three basic types of Honda Civic headlights: halogen, LED and HID.
Halogen headlights are the most popular type of headlight source on the market currently. At high temperature, the sublimated tungsten filament and the halogen gas filled into the lamp body, such as iodine, bromine and other medium gases, produce a certain chemical reaction, which makes the bulb heat up and emit light. Halogen light sources have been around for decades as automobile headlights and are still going strong today, since there is nothing comparable to them in terms of overall performance and reliability.
The first attempt to use LED headlights on a car was in 2004, and since then they have been favored by customers as Honda Civic headlights. LED headlamp is a group of light-emitting diodes, as a solid-state semiconductor device, whose ability is to directly convert electrical energy into visible light, with the characteristics of power saving, long life as well as high brightness. The technology is very reliable, but can also fail if moisture gets into the case.
The HID light-emitting principle is that the arc generated by the high-voltage discharger between the two electrodes emits light. A quartz tube filled with high-voltage xenon gas is used to replace the traditional tungsten wire, so the emitted light has a higher color temperature and more concentrated light. As automobile headlights, compared to halogen headlights, the manufacturing cost is higher, and the corresponding price will be more expensive, but the light it emits also has advantages.

1.How can know if the headlights need replacing?
If your headlight shell has obvious and serious scratches, it is very likely that water will enter the inside of the headlight, resulting in water mist and affecting the lighting of the headlight. At this time, you can choose to replace the headlight to ensure that you can drive safely on the road.
In addition, when your headlights emit dim light or power outage, and excluding the failure of the bulb, the biggest possibility is that the headlight circuit is short-circuited, and you should also replace the headlight at this time. If there is no damage to the headlight housing and the wiring, then the maximum possibility is that the life of the bulb has reached its limit.
2.What is the lifespan of headlight bulbs?
Generally speaking, halogen bulbs can last 3 to 5 years, but the actual lifespan depends on how often you use them. And LED bulbs will last longer than halogen bulbs because they don't have glass bulbs or filaments.
3.What factors need to be considered when buying?
When buying headlights, you first need to see whether the model and headlights match each other. Only the matching headlights can provide good lighting effects during driving and ensure safety. Secondly, you need to consider the price of the headlights, whether it is in line with your budget. Finally, you also need to check the relevant manuals to ensure that the quality of the lights is verified by the manufacturer.
4.How much is a set of Honda Civic headlights?
The type of headlights you buy determines the average cost. For example, halogen headlights, due to their relatively low manufacturing costs, generally sell for $250 to $500 for a set of headlights on the market. The halogen headlight mentioned above is a particularly premium and on sale one, so the price will be lower than other stores.
