Shop Headlights and Headlight Parts

A car’s headlights come in a wide variety of types, from classic sealed beams to modern halogen lights, xenon, and even LED bulbs. Finding headlight replacement bulbs is crucial to a safe car ride and heightened visibility.

Good headlights will help you out in inclement weather with a wide but focused beam of light that can save your life from nocturnal road hazards or an oncoming driver with limited visibility on a stormy night.

What Are The Different Types Of Headlight?

Headlight technology has come a long way over the past few decades.

Where we once had to settle for dull and discolored headlights, now we can choose from the brightest white light or a 7-color RGB DRL Bar headlight that mounts on the top of your Ford F150 or Jeep Wrangler, virtually banishing darkness. Clear, bright light output is key to nighttime visibility and safety.

But not just any light goes into your car or truck. It's important to know what kind of parts you need. Do you need a whole replacement headlight assembly, or do you have an H4 conversion, and you only need to find a headlight compatible with your housing.

Reflector Headlights

These are the oldest of the bunch and were often considered dull stock headlights. If one of the lights burned out, you were forced to replace the entire headlight housing. This inability to be customized has seen the sealed beam style reflector headlights phased out of use.

Today reflector headlights use mirrors instead of lenses to guide the low or high beam of light they put out. Replacing a reflector headlight today is incredibly easy as the housings are no longer sealed.

Projector Headlights

Projector headlights were once only found in European performance cars, but today they are common, and most new cars use this style of headlight.

The only real difference between projector headlights and reflector headlights is that a projector uses a lens to magnify the beam’s output, which gives improved night visibility and a more homogenous light.

H4 Conversions

This is the most accessible aftermarket upgrade the average driver can make to their driving lights. An H4 headlight assembly kit is compatible with multiple bulb types and is an easy switch from the factory headlight assemblies.

So ditch the genuine headlights for brilliant LED light or any number of our high-quality replacement headlights in a choice of styles at NAPA AUTO PARTS.
