Hello everyone,

Don't bash me on this but is there a post somewhere on here that tells us what all the bulb sizes are on the 2016 civic? I tried searching on here but I came with no luck or I might get bashed on that I haven't tried hard enough.
I tried locating in the owners manual but maybe I'm looking in the wrong area as well. I did also search online but nothing really comes up under 2016 civic bulbs but I may be looking in the wrong area.
It'd be great to know if those of you who knows what bulb sizes are on the civic. For ex. low to high beam, interior to exterior bulb size.

Thanks

Are you going to upgrade your interior to LED's?
Driving lights are H8

This is a link to the LED's for the interior trunk, and reverse lights if you're going that route I have them installed and they are great!

Those are the call-outs from the Honda parts catalog, available online in several places now. Bulbs (non-LED) only in that list. Did not bother to get the LEDs since they are not replaceable as "bulb" only, and no real interest in them since no need to replace them unless failed. The OM is pretty clear on which ones ARE LED. (DRLs, headlights for Touring, taillights, license plate lights, front and mirror turn signals for Touring, and maybe some others.)

Are any of these listed factory bulbs LED?? Which ones are LED, the DRL's and brake lights only? (and headlights on Touring)
Headlights, brake lights, license plate lights, blinker lights are LED on the Touring, interior lights are not, driving lights are not, trunk lights are not.
I ordered a kit for the interior and trunk, listed above to convert to LED, and got the driving light LED's on amazon arrived today, but I have to get them installed.

…brake lights, …blinker lights are LED on the Touring
Don't think so based on available data (OM, OG, parts catalog). Touring brake lamps (3x) and rear turn signal lights (2x) are 21W red and amber incandescent. Front turn signals are LED for Touring and incandescent for all other.

Will research/edit my post for the bulbs on non-Touring that are LED on Touring. (Front turn, low and high beam headlight.)

I'm glad I brought this up and is happy with all the replies I'm getting. I know from my previous forums, they would have all that information sticky somewhere from bulb sizes, vehicle specs, tire and wheel sizes, and etc.

It'd be great if we had a thread that simply puts "Everything you need to know about the 2016 Civic LX, EX, Touring, etc." For ex. (From ToyotaNation) please click the following link to the thread http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/149-10th-gen-corolla-2nd-gen-matrix-general-discussion-forum/365333-10thgen-everything-you-need-know.html

I think it would really help a lot but just my two cents.

Thanks All!

I respect that this is all preference but please everyone do not upgrade to the blinding bluish headlight bulbs that are popular in the high school crowds. Do not take away from the quality of these cars. Honda has already put together a nice package. Soft white / white is good.

Is there an LED equivalent for the Fog lights? Do I look up H8 LED, or does H8 imply incandescent?
H8 is the bulb number for the driving lights, from there you select a color. I'm going with LED White to match the headlights on my Touring
I did see a yellow though

There is a difference and these are fog not driving lights.

What is the difference between a fog light & a driving light?
Fog lights provide illumination forward of the vehicle that enhances visibility in fog, rain, snow, or dust. Fog lights are intended to be used in conjunction with standard headlamp low beams. Driving lights are mounted to provide illumination forward of the vehicle and intended to supplement the high beam of a standard headlamp system. It is not intended for use alone or with the low beam of a standard headlamp system.

So I just recently purchased H11 4500k Morimoto Elite kit. I got to say it is way brighter than stock and I now have more visibility at night. One thing that is weird is that after I made that bulb change... My engine light came on which is strange. I'm planning to swap back to OEMs and see if it is still the case. If not, planning to take my car to the Dealer to figure out why my brand new car now all a sudden has an Engine light.

I have to keep an open mind here. If your kit is that much brighter maybe it is a good idea. Are these bulbs a bright white? I have always been a fan of stock so I always hesitat. Let us know how the check engine light turns out. Hopefully it's nothing...

Yes, basically it is a a bright white color or white. It is brighter when I compared it though being HIDs, it may blind others and depending in certain states, they are illegal. The better option may be to go LED Low beam instead but it's on the preference of the owner. There's always other alternatives for better bulbs but you never know until you experiment.

Awesome! I can't stand the halogens against the LED DRLs. I ordered them on Saturday so hopefully they come in the next few days :D
