When we are driving, the things we cannot see can prove to be fatal or dangerous to us. This is exactly the reason why all cars come with different sets of headlights and tail lights.

What you see in front of the vehicle is called headlights designed to illuminate the road ahead of you while driving at night or while driving in poorly lit areas. Headlights are one of the earliest safety features to be attached in a vehicle.

Nowadays, most headlights are electrically operated, emitting high beam lights straight ahead to maximize the good visibility. High beam headlights, however, send too much glare and cause back dazzle brought by the reflection from rain, fog and snow. Low beams, on the other hand, can control lights which go upward and reroute most of its illumination downward to either rightward or leftward. Low beams goal is to deliver safe and excellent driving visibility without too much glare or back dazzle.

Headlights come in many types. Xenon headlights, HID headlights, Euro lights, halogen headlamps and projector headlights are among others. Replacing your existing vehicle headlights with projector headlights is among the great ways to enhance the car's fa├žade.

Projector headlights, like a JDM Integra Headlights, are offered in chrome, blue, black, red and other colors and are crafted to look so sleek that they are often mistaken as though they were customized.

Its design works like a slide projector and it allows you to see what you need to see sooner and more vividly. In projector headlights, a filament is positioned at one focus of an elliptical and a condenser lens is placed in front of the lamp. At the image plane, just between the lens and the reflector, a shade can be found and the projection at the top edge of this shade is the one that gives the low-beam cutoff.
