The low beams are H11 55w bulbs and the fog lights are H8 35w bulbs.thanks @2slo4u , where did you get the bulbs/what sizes??
Thank you! me too!Nice Job. Always liked the yellow fog bulbs better.
sadly I didn't think to take pictures of the OEM bulbs but tonight I will take pictures of the HID/Fog set up I have now . I do hope the thread helps those who do plan on adding a little extra to their Civic.Awesome Post! I'd like to see a comparison some day (or night) between the HID and stock LEDs. I suspect that the HIDs will provide a "sharper" light, one that shows road irregularities such as dips, cracks, and other discontinuities, better than the more diffuse LEDs. Just my opinion though.
Anyway, 2slo4u, thanks for providing such a clear DIY. I am waiting for the HB next year, and wonder if I might "have" to do a similar mod to it.
Nice! Thanks!hey look what popped up on my instagram feed just now
Did you want to go with the HID kit or were you just looking for a replacement halogen bulb?I did a quick check on amazon for "H11 55w" and I found a few different choices.
What's the one I should get for my EX-L? (Is there a better place to buy these?)
Also, is there any risk of mis-aligning the headlights if I replace the low-beam bulbs?
Honestly I've never used LED head light bulbs but I've heard many good things about them. The LED set you posted does look like a good quality set. Maybe you can take note of the specs on that set and find a cheaper set on ebay. $120 is pricey IMO.At first I was thinking of Halogen, but then I discovered HID replacements... and LED replacements.
The LEDs look interesting - especially this one: http://www.xenondepot.com/H11-LED-headlight-kit-p/h11-led-hl.htm
But to be frank, I'm a total newb.
I'd love for some more advice on this. What kind of HID did you use?
I haven't really mounted the ballasts yet anywhere permanent. I set them aside somewhere where they wouldn't move or were away from moving parts.Could you take some pictures of where you mounted the ballast in your install?
any idea where you might mount them permanently?I haven't really mounted the ballasts yet anywhere permanent. I set them aside somewhere where they wouldn't move or were away from moving parts.
I think it will be a good idea to mount it on some brace under the plastic cover covering the gap from the front engine brace to inner part of the bumper. Good amount of space to work with.any idea where you might mount them permanently?
