Especially when driving at night the light of a car makes a lot. For many tuners also changes come into consideration, such as the attachment of additional lights. In addition to the Coolfactor, the right auxiliary headlamps can also improve the visibility of the driver. However, there are strict regulations, what is to be considered when attaching additional lights.
For whom are additional lights the right one?
Especially in the 80er years additional headlights were announced by many car owners. At that time, the light was not always very strong at work, so behind the additional lights often a practical sense, namely the improvement of the view, was. Since the headlamps of modern cars are usually already bright enough from the factory, you can see additional attached headlamps on the front today rather rare. Nevertheless, additional lamps are available for modern cars on the market, which can be attached. Especially with larger off-road vehicles or pick-ups, additional headlamps will continue to be used, but hardly any longer in normal compact cars. Nevertheless, there are also options for retrofitting, for example, for all those who have no fog lights as standard. Even the daytime running lights can be retrofitted, for those who want it.
What is to be considered with additional lights?
Since the light of a vehicle contributes to its safety, there are strict regulations that must be observed during cultivation. First, it is true that, no matter whether car or truck, in Germany only a total of four high beam headlamps are allowed. These must always be fitted in pairs, at the same height and distance to the center of the vehicle. When purchasing additional luminaires, make sure that they have an officially recognized certification mark. The most commonly used test mark is this ECE test, a circled "E" with a number behind it, which is recognized in 62 states, including almost all European countries. Another mark, a small "e" with a number in the rectangle, is recognized in all states of the EU and is therefore also a guarantee for the legality of the headlamp in Germany.
In summary, additional lights offer depending on the variant for many car owners. If you want to make your SUV or pick-up for more visibility, you can attach more high beams. The vintage car fans can provide even today with additional lights for better visibility, in addition, additional lights in cult cars like the Volvo 240 formally include! The compact car drivers can also provide their car with additional lights by retrofitting daytime running lights or fog lights.
