A headlight is required for every vehicle, for illuminating the path when driving. It is very big, and is used in both two wheelers as well as four wheelers. It generally consists of a single light for a two wheeler. For a car, brighter and multiple lights are used, since a larger space has to be illuminated for driving purposes. These lights have been used since the making of car in early 18th century. Earlier, there were lamps used for this purpose. But these would exhaust soon, and could not be used in bad weather. With the advent of battery and electricity, lights began to be used. These are provided with the automobile during the manufacturing process itself, and can also be installed afterwards. These are basically for illumination purpose, and have very high intensity lights. Apart from their basic purpose of providing visibility for driving, these are also used for improving the looks of the car as well. A smart and stylish headlight can be used to get a makeover of a car. These lights are placed at the front of the car, and so, are the ones which are noticed at first in the car. For those cars which are to be driven more in night, these become even more important. For example for heavy duty vehicles like trucks, etc, which run on night, bright headlights are required. These are very essential, because these types of vehicles run at much higher speed than the normal ones, and so require better safety mechanisms than required by others.
This accessory is available in various types of shapes, sizes and colours also. These lights provide vision for the car, and makes visibility better for the driver also. While buying a headlight, the car model and type should be considered.
