FAQ - SanseAuto
1. What does the XENON HID light system kit include?
Every one of our kits is made from OEM grade materials that have been CE approved. Each kit includes: 2 direct plug-in XENON H.I.D. lamps, 2 ballasts (transformer / igniter unit), all necessary wiring, complete and easy to follow installation instructions and wiring diagram.
2. Why are Xenon lights better than traditional halogen lights？
- Xenon lights use less energy
Xenon lights only consume 35W making then 3 times more efficient than traditional halogen lights.
- Xenon lights have a longer lifetime
Xenon lights last more than 3000 hours which is 6 times more than the life of traditional halogen lights.
- Xenon lights save lives
Xenon lights illuminate 300% more than traditional halogen lights. In bad weather conditions or at night, you can see more objects like pedestrians, cyclists, road workers and traffic signs. This gives you more time to react and prevent accidents.
- Xenon light is more natural
The light emitted from Xenon light is closer to the natural light emitted by the sun. It is whiter and more attractive than the yellow light emitted by traditional halogen lights.
3. What is colour temperature?
Many people believe that the higher the colour temperature the brighter the lamp. This is totally wrong. The colour temperature is purely a scale to measure the colour of the light output. It is a reference purely for colour and could equally be called White, Green or Blue. The reality is the higher up the scale the lamps are the less bright they become. 5200K lamps are approx 10% brighter (measured in Lumens, not degrees K) than the 7000K. If you want lighting performance the 5200K HID lamps are the best. In our opinion 7000K has the best and most attractive light output.
Degrees K = ONLY COLOUR
4. What should I do if I touch the bulb?
Never touch the bulb glass with your skin as oil from your hands can shorten the life of the bulb. If you do touch the bulb, remove these oils with alcohol and a very soft cotton cloth.
5. How long do they last?
HID XENON lamps are designed to last for the life of your vehicle. Under normal conditions these bulbs will last a little shorter than your factory bulbs because they are so much brighter they sacrifice life for light. Off road or in racing conditions they will last shorter still.They will run for over 2000 hours. Our lamp kits and bulbs are made of the finest materials available.
6. It will happen flash after installation
- First check headlamps the stability of power or lines with the relevant equipment
- Replacement Ballast whether the fault still
- Replacement of light bulbs, whether troubleshooting
7. Could I Install the kit myself?
For anyone who is mechanically inclined, this installation is considered “do-it-yourself”. While a typical installation takes approximately an hour, it can vary depending on application (conversion or auxiliary). Our kits are ready to install right-out-of-the-box and come complete with everything that you will need. We also provide you a full set of easy-to-read, step-by-step instructions to guide you.
8. Could I re-install the original halogen bulbs after the XENON H.I.D. kit has been installed?
With the growing popularity of leasing vehicles, a big concern is whether or not you can bring the vehicle back to its original factory condition. Our kits install with little or no modifications to your vehicle. If need be, the entire kit can be removed and the original halogen bulbs replaced. This kit can be re-installed into another vehicle that uses the same bulb size.
9. Will I lose the ability to use the High beams?
All originally supplied XENON H.I.D. lighting systems from automotive manufacturers use a dual bulb configuration for High and Low beam. A traditional halogen bulb is used for the High beam while a XENON H.I.D. lamp is utilized for the Low beam. Our kits are intended to replace the Low-beam components of the lighting system while still keeping the High beam halogen bulb fully operational.
Some vehicles use a single halogen bulb for both the High and Low beam (like H4). We offer a kit for these vehicles as well, but the functionality of the High beam is eliminated. We are also offering the Dual Beam / Hylow H4 kit where both High and Low beam are preserved.
An alternative to this is to use the low beam H4 kit and install the XENON HID light system kit into the auxiliary lights of your vehicle. This way, you will still have full High beam functionality and will increase the effectiveness of your auxiliary lights.
10. Are these XENON HID light systems street legal?
Every country and jurisdiction has its own rules and regulations governing the use of automotive lighting. XENON H.I.D. lighting systems that are supplied with the vehicles from the factory are CE approved. Our kits are also made by the same OEM manufacturers that supply all the major car companies of the world. NO XENON H.I.D. lighting system available from any source is DOT / E approved if installed outside of the factory. These kits are not street legal for use on public roads as they are. As a result, we officially endorse the kit for exhibition and off-road use and will only sell the kit to be used for these purposes. We are not responsible for customers who violate the terms of sale in which they will assume all responsibilities for any unauthorized or unintended use other than exhibition or off-road use.
