Are HID lights Interchangeable between Makers?



There have been a lot of advances in the technology used in the cars that we love over the last few decades and not the least of which can been found at for headlight technology. HID lights are becoming the new standard and that means a lot of people are considering upgrading their older vehicles with HID conversion kits to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their headlights. But, this raises a lot of questions. Let’s take a look at one of the more common questions I have heard.

Are all HID lights interchangeable between makers? Well, the simple answer is not entirely and that is why you have to be very careful about making sure that you are buying the right part for the right vehicle. Picking out the wrong part could cost you a good chunk of money and, more importantly, a lot of annoyance and time.

Speaking of just the HID lights, almost all of them fit into the headlights of multiple different vehicles produced by many different makers. The different makes and models that use a certain size and style of HID light can be found easily online and should be listed on the packaging for the light itself.

The biggest confusion comes when talking about conversion kits. These are much more than just HID lights and are designed for upgrading the system of a particular car or series of cars. For example, a BMW HID kit designed for the E39-5 series will not work for a 2012 Ford Mustang, but should be interchangeable between the cars in the E39-5 series. Within the Mustang line, you will see different kits for different years grouped into chunks of 4 or 5 years. Make sure to do your research and check that the conversion kit you are looking at is going to be the right one for your make and model.
