Acura HID Kits “A high intensity discharge lamp” is a type of bulb that produces a brighter and much focused beam of light. These bulbs are the new age of technology lighting. This technology was introduced into car headlights back in 1997. There are a few Acura’s that come with xenon lighting from the factory. They call it a xenon package. Xenon, by the way, is an odorless, colorless, tasteless, non-toxic, monatomic and chemically inert gas. HID Kit were not introduced on Acura’s as a factory option until recently, and not on all their vehicles. That is why the aftermarket car industry introduced Aftermarket Xenon Kits. Aftermarket HID Kit are available for Acura’s. Models such as Acura Integra, Acura RSX, Acura MDX, Acura TL, Acura RL, Acura RDX, Acura EL, Acura TSX, Acura Vigor, Acura CL. Acura NSX, are now able to have xenon Kit installed onto them, even if they were not equipped to do so. Xenon Kit include the xenon filled bulbs, which is the gas that burns inside of them, they also come with the ballast, and the plugs. Ballasts are small boxes that convert the electrical current for the xenon bulb. The reason the ballast is needed, is to make sure there is enough electrical current available for the xenon bulbs to ignite. Even though xenon bulbs use less electrical current to run, they do need quite a lot to get them burning when they first come on. But once they are on they use less electrical current. HID Kit are easily installable on to Acura’s. It usually takes about twenty five, to thirty minutes to install HIDs on Acura’s. The process usually includes removing the old Halogen bulbs, installing the HID or xenon bulbs from the xenon kit onto your Acura. Once that is taken care of then you can move on to plugging the bulb to the ballast, and then the old wiring harness that went to the halogen bulb would go onto the other side of the ballast.
