The GE Nighthawk Xenon headlights are a great option for those drivers out there who want a little more out of their headlights, but don’t want the hassle of installing an aftermarket kit. These lights aim to meet OEM specifications for your factory headlights, install in less than five minutes, and are brighter than the stock headlights that came in your vehicle.

You can see from the photos above that the bulb has a slight blue hue to it.
As expected, the headlights were a simple plug-and-play, and installed in just a few minutes. The image below shows the stock bulb removed and the headlight cable hanging loose under the hood of the vehicle, showing how easy the install was. Simply unscrew the old bulb, plug in the new bulb, and screw it back into the housing.
The four steps in the photos above took less than five minutes, including the time it took to take the photos. Once the headlights were installed, we turned them on to test them out. Here’s how they looked once we turned them on:
