Did you know that headlights can dim up to 20% in 2 years, which can affect driving visibility? It’s recommended to check your headlights at least once a year to make sure they are working at their highest performance. Sylvania has a few great tips you should keep in mind-
- Checking your headlights- Park on a level surface facing five feet from a building wall or your garage door, then turn on your headlights. If the circles of light are bright and white, they are in good working condition. If they are yellow or dim, the bulbs should be replaced.
- Always change headlight bulbs in pairs. Because bulbs dim over time, the new one will likely be brighter than the old one, causing an uneven field of illumination.
- If the lenses on a vehicle’s headlights are cloudy or hazy, replacing the bulbs may not be enough. Consider a headlight restoration kit, which restores headlights to like-new condition and light output. The Sylvania kit includes a UV Block Clear Coat that protects headlights from UV rays – the number one reason headlights become dangerous. After use, drivers should see a considerable improvement, as the product enables up to three times more light to shine on the road.
We checked out headlights out on our Van when we got the SYLVANIA SilverStar® ULTRA and SYLVANIA SilverStar® zXe headlight bulbs. They were changed just a year ago, so we didn’t think they needed replacing at all. Think again! I couldn’t believe the difference, really, what a huge difference. The headlights we replaced on our other car were even worse.
SYLVANIA SilverStar® ULTRA headlight bulbs provide up to 40 percent increased down road visibility, up to 50 percent increased side road visibility and up to 50 percent brighter light compared to worn standard halogen headlights. For some drivers, that will be about half the length of a football field.
SYLVANIA SilverStar® zXe headlight bulbs feature a unique blend of xenon and halogen gases, and are the newest and whitest color temperature product in the SYLVANIA SilverStar® High Performance Series of headlights. These bulbs give vehicles the look and feel of HID (high-intensity discharge) lights.
We have gone through all three of our cars and replaced the bulbs, I don’t think we’ll be switching anytime soon from using Sylvania. My husband was taken back at the difference and he knows his cars so for him to say these are much safer and more reliable says a lot.

Make sure you replace your headlights on time, or at least test them to see if they are in good working condition!
