Acura TL vehicles feature beams with Xenon High Intensity Discharge (HID) that offers you a better field of vision when you are driving. TL headlights also feature halogen high beam bulbs.
Are LEDs headlights legal?
LED lights are not illegal, except where the headlight is concerned. You may use LEDs in unregulated auxiliary lights.
Can you replace projector headlights with LED lights?
Projector headlights have typically used halogen or HID bulbs since they were first introduced, so how do LEDs compare? LED lights are up to 300% brighter than standard halogen headlights and around the same brightness level as HIDs. So LEDs are definitely bright enough to be used as projector lights.
What are jewel eye headlights?
Jewel Eye® LED Headlights On low beam, the LEDs help reveal the road more clearly without blinding oncoming traffic. The lenses are precisely aimed, yet focus the LED beam over a longer, wider area. Engaging the high beams illuminates distant objects 200 milliseconds sooner than conventional lights.
Are 6000K LED headlights legal?
Any light above 6000K will start to look very blue. You can purchase headlight bulbs that go all the way up to 12,000K, which produces a light that’s almost purple. However, not all of these bulbs are road legal.
Are LED headlights worth the upgrade?

LED headlights are much brighter, revealing more of the road and your surroundings. This benefit also goes two ways, as oncoming traffic will have an easier time seeing your vehicle.
What is better HID or LED headlights?
Technology: LED lights use electricity while HID uses gas (typically xenon). Energy use: Both have high energy use compared to halogen, but LEDs are slightly more energy-efficient. Life span: LED lights might last up to 45,000 hours while HIDs have a life span of around 15,000 hours.
Will LED headlights melt the housing?
#3: The brightest LED bulbs are proven to create the most heat. #4: Even on the LED bulbs that create the most heat, they are still not hot enough to damage anything in/on/around the headlight housing.
Which is better projector headlights or LED?
LEDs in Projector Headlights Halogen bulbs are not bright enough. Also, they don’t use the full potential of the lens. Hence they are not efficient when compared to LEDs. Installing LEDs on a projector will make the headlight more effective.
What are chicane lights?
