Ford Taurus Replacement OEM HID Bulbs


These replacement OEM-size HID bulbs will upgrade your Taurus' OEM bulbs, which are slightly warm in color (4300K), to a cool white, modern color. These are quality bulbs, with better performance than most other generic ones on the market. They will not flicker, and they will work every time you turn them on.


Manufacturer: Diode Dynamics has been distributing replacement OEM HID bulbs for over 9 years, and we have evaluated nearly every bulb manufacturer on the market. We've seen the best, and the worst, and after testing them all, we selected CNLight, because their bulbs are always superior in performance and last longer than others on the market. Look around, and you'll see other top suppliers also providing these bulbs, although some brand them under their own name. CNLight is simply the best aftermarket HID bulb manufacturer currently on the market. Even if you don't purchase them from us, make sure you get CNLight!


Bulb Construction: As we said, CNLight manufactures superior HID bulbs. What does that mean? All HID bulbs have basic parts: connectors, a plastic base, a device that holds the glass tube, and the glass tube, or bulb, itself. Most bulbs use plastic bases that are made up of multiple pieces and a plastic holder for the glass tube. CNLight bulbs use a one-piece base design, and a ceramic holder, which isolates heat from the base, providing much better reliability. It's more expensive to do it that way, but it's the best way to do it!


Color: The most common issue with cheap replacement bulbs is that they don't match perfectly in color. It's a real pain, and it ruins the look you're going for! Why does this happen? The color of each bulb is determined by the yellow stuff in the little bubble in the glass tube on the bulb. This stuff is a chemical mixture of halide salts. The composition of these salts much be mixed perfectly and deposited in precisely the same amounts to ensure a pair of bulbs matches. Cheap manufacturers skimp on this, because it's also an expensive material.


CNLight does it right, and their bulbs will always match perfectly. If you buy another pair of the same color a few months down the road, those will match too! We confirm exact color output by testing our bulbs in-house with the required scientific equipment. Any reputable supplier should have the necessary equipment to conduct this type of quality control, to ensure perfect color uniformity.


What if you get them, try them out, and don't like the color? We offer exchanges with no fees. Just let us know, and we can swap them out. That's our satisfaction guarantee.


Warranty: Do not be fooled by overrated "lifetime" warranties from other manufacturers and distributors. HID bulbs, under normal use, will last about 2500 hours, or 3 years, if used about 2 hours a day. We provide a three-year limited warranty to back them up for this entire period. Also, keep in mind that the warranty is only as good as what the company actually replaces. Our warranty is through Diode Dynamics, LLC, so you can be assured that you will get fast and friendly service should you have any problems. We have been in business for over 9 years, and we'll still be here for years down the road.


Shipment: We carry our own inventory, so no waiting for them to be shipped from overseas, or waiting on generic, unreliable suppliers to ship them. They ship right from our own inventory, in St. Louis, Missouri, usually the same day you order.


Your order comes with:


*-One pair HID bulbs in your choice of bulb size and color
*-Three-year limited warranty on all components
*-Diode Dynamics 30-day satisfaction guarantee

5000K will produce more visible output than 6000K

I personally prefer the pure white 5000K myself

Thanks!

Hi Nick, I send a PM on Friday inquiring about the HID headlight bulbs for the Taurus SHO, and today I got a reply from Justin. I must say that I am less then impressed with his response since he failed to answer any of my questions I asked....makes me reconsider ordering the HID replacement bulbs.....not hard questions. Here they are: First, do these replacement bulbs retain the high/low beam feature of the stock bulbs. Also, I was going to order the 5000K temperature bulbs, but when I talked to a rep on the phone last week (I had a friend who wanted to order the license plate bulbs for a car like mine) I was informed that the Festoon bulbs were not available in 5000K temp. I could have sworn that when I ordered mine, that you had told me that the 5000K festoon bulbs is what I should order....now, this has nothing to do with the HID bulbs, other than I love the color of the license plate LED bulbs, and if they really are 6000K temperature bulbs, then I do like the color and if that will be the same color as the HID bulbs, I think I want the 6000K rather than the 5000K...I was using the light output of the license plate bulbs to help me decide which HID bulbs I wanted. Again, very unhappy with Justin's reply and I really don't want to deal with him when I order my HID bulbs, much rather have you handle it. Thanks.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us, I apologize if Justin's response wasn't thorough enough for your questions. Let me answer them for you.

1. Our HID bulb replacements will produce the same lumen output as your factory bulbs. They are primarily meant to change the color temperature for cosmetic purposes. They operate identically to your OEM bulbs, and will retain the exact same features and functionality.

2. We don't offer a 5000K Festoon bulb replacement. Our XML2 fog lights, and HP5 194 replacement bulbs are the only LEDs we offer in a 5000K Color temperature.

3. Our license plate LEDs are a very crisp white and won't have any purplish hue like you may see with loosely binned LED bulbs.

Feel free to give us a call if I missed anything, we appreciate your support and are happy to help! (314) 205-3033
