All good things come in pairs
Avoiding safety risks through light
Until they do, they’ll be driving with just one headlight. This
leads to a level of low light that drivers often underestimate,
resulting in a significantly reduced field of vision and there-
fore to an increased risk to safety. But drivers can prevent
this by being more proactive in replacing their lamps before
they go out.
Always in pairs
Over time, the amount of light produced by headlights di-
minishes. This means that drivers should regularly check
that they still work – and replace them if necessary. It is rec-
ommended that they be checked once a year and ex-
changed every two to three years. But replacing just one
lamp and not the other can lead to an imbalance in spot-
light. The one replacement lamp will be brighter than the
lamp that was not replaced, so it is important to replace the
lamps in pairs to ensure optimal light output and visibility.
Not doing so could also be a potential safety risk.
Products that add more value recommended
The quality among headlights can differ widely. Thinking
ahead and replacing lamps before they become an issue
will give you more time to consider which lamps suit your
needs best. Not all replacement lamps provide the same
level of quality that comes with the lamps in a brand-new
car. The best option is to go with a good quality, value-add-
ed product you can depend on and that offers a suitable
design, light output and lifetime. NEOLUX’s broad portfolio
offers customers a diverse selection of adequate lamps
based on their preferences and needs.
These include the “Standard” products as well as the per-
formance lamps “Extra Light”, which provide everything its
name implies: extra light. With a longer and brighter light
cone, these performance lamps provide better light com-
pared to standard products, helping drivers spot dangerous
situations sooner and more accurately, and thereby increas-
ing valuable reaction times. Offering garages and customers
good quality and performance products, NEOLUX’s broad
vehicle lamp portfolio makes sure drivers can always see in
New lamps provide a greater amount of light than
If just one of the lamps is replaced because the other
seems to still be working, the spotlight beam may become
unbalanced. The driver may struggle to see the road
ahead because it is not properly illuminated. And anyone
approaching from the opposite direction may have trouble
seeing the oncoming car – or even mistake it for a
Once one lamp is broken, it won’t be long before the
other one fails
Changing in pairs reduces the risk that the other lamp will
fail while driving. Plus, going to the garage or store twice
for two separate lamps would take up more time than
necessary, and installing the lamps at two different times
amounts to extra work you could save yourself.
Most drivers think they have nothing to worry about as long as their headlights function – all
they have to do is change their lamps if they break or burn out. But what if it takes a while
before they get the opportunity to replace a broken lamp?
It’s common knowledge that tires, brakes, shock absorbers and wiper blades need to be
changed in pairs. The same goes for lamps.

Exchange your lamps before they go out in the dark
Lamp performance and power decreases over time, gener-
ating less light as they near the end of their lifetime. This
reduces the drivers’ field of view and impacts visibility at
night – making situations less safe.
Do it right from the start
When choosing lamps, it’s important to consider what you
need in terms of lighting. By sticking with a brand-name
manufacturer like NEOLUX, you get a good solution to keep
your drives illuminated for a long time to come.
