AUDI A6 HEADLIGHTS
Now in its 4th generation, the Audi A6 is produced by the German manufacturer Audi and succeeded the Audi 100. The headlights of the Audi A6 standout and enable the driver to better see the road and objects in front of them in the absence of natural light. All the models are fitted with High-Intensity Discharge (HID) projector headlights.What are the features of the Audi A6 HID headlights?
In recent years, HID lights, also known as Xenon lights, have picked up great popularity over the standard halogen projector bulbs that come as default lighting in most cars. The rising popularity is largely because of their bright light, which is three times brighter than that of halogen bulbs. They are also energy efficient and last longer.
Another amazing feature about it is the ability to switch and adjust the lights according to the terrain you are driving on. If you are driving uphill, the standard lights will point towards the sky. This makes it hard to see and is potentially dangerous. Another scenario is when driving through sharp bends. The normal lights will illuminate the path straight ahead, leaving the driver to guess the road’s curve until a complete turn is made. With their adaptive self-adjusting feature, Audi HDI headlights adjust accordingly when driving around sharp corners and along hilly terrain allowing for safer driving.How do I choose the right Audi Headlights?
