SYLVANIA Automotive Signs On as Presenting Sponsor of the Hot Import Nights 2013 Season

HILLSBORO, NH--(Marketwire - Mar 18, 2013) - Following a successful debut in 2012, SYLVANIA Automotive Lighting has announced that the company will be the presenting sponsor of the 2013 Hot Import Nights (HIN) series' domestic schedule, starting with the March 23 event in Fontana, Calif. The sponsorship will include the continuation of the popular Hottest Lighting Contest, which was introduced last year, and gives entrants with the most unique lighting modifications a chance to compete for $2,500.

New to this year's sponsorship, SYLVANIA is launching the SYLVANIA SilverStar® zXe Lighting Zone, which will spotlight vehicles at each event with the coolest and most creative lighting applications as part of its display on the show floor.

Knowing the attention to detail that performance enthusiasts have when it comes to lighting, SYLVANIA introduced its SilverStar® zXe headlights, the whitest color temperature product in the SYLVANIA SilverStar® High Performance Series lineup. And, for additional customization options, SYLVANIA Automotive Lighting introduced the LEDriving® product line, which includes daytime running light kits, and retrofit light sources for dome, map and license plate applications.
