Your quick reference bulb guide from Ring

Home
Tuesday, April 02, 2019

A quick reference Ring bulb wall chart is included with this issue of Autobiz, providing and essential technical information on the full range of Ring 6V and 12V bulbs.

The chart is very useful for both garages and motor factors providing a full guide to replacement bulbs from the automotive lighting specialist. The chart features images, ECE references, dimensions, technical drawings and part numbers for over 600 replacement bulbs, which is 300 more than any other bulb supplier. This includes the most recently created references being fitted to new vehicles, as well as upgrades, so that motor factors and technicians can offer brighter, whiter blubs and other high-performance options available to customers. The chart also has guides for ECE references, to show applications for a comprehensive range of road-legal bulbs for 12V and 6V vehicles.

As well as this the chart includes information about Ring’s xenon HID range, which features well-established references as well as the newer D5 bulb that is now being fitted on a growing number of vehicles. Research from Ring suggests that xenon HIDs should be replaced every three years, to prevent a drop in light output and maintain visibility for drivers. This offers an opportunity for garages and factors, who can offer replacement at a better value price than main dealers but still make a profit on the more technical fit and higher value products.

Matthew Flaherty, Vehicle Lighting Product Manager at Ring, says, “The chart gives a quick reference guide for a wide range of bulb references. We’ve included some of the newest bulbs now being fitted to vehicles, including up to date HID references and the latest in performance upgrades. Our aim is to help technicians and factors identify the correct replacement and offer potential upgrades, so that they can give their customers the best bulb for their vehicle with up to date information and options.”
