Car Bulb Buyers Guide

Choosing and fitting a new bulb for your car can be a lot trickier than it should be, so Halfords are here to help.

Our standard car bulbs

Our standard bulbs are easy to fit and don't need any changes to the wiring of your car. They're made to all vehicle manufacturers' original equipment standards and are safe and legal.

Need something extra? Try Halfords' Brilliance range.

You can buy sat navs with different amounts of mapping information. They range from sat navs with just UK street maps (including motorways, major and minor roads) through to ones with full European mapping (45 countries).

Features to look out for

We stock a range of bulbs which can throw more light on the road than ever before, all thanks to Xenon gas technology and precision filament:

  • Brilliance - these bulbs are up to 30% brighter than standard bulbs.
  • Super Brilliance - these bulbs are up to 50% brighter
  • Extreme Brilliance - these bulbs are up to 90% brighter.
  • Ultra Brilliance - these bulbs are up to 120% brighter.
