Hello friends!

I am new to the forum as I just purchased a 2004 Honda CRV from a friend that is in incredible conndition. Are there any headlamp assemblies that would be brighter than the existing stock ones I have in the EX? Xenon perhaps (as in my Saab 95 Aero)? The headlights are very foggy and I would prefer to get new ones at this point than fussing and trying to clean them.

I am sure this has been asked a thousand times in the forum but I could not find it in the search engine. Thank you in advance for your patience with this newbie!

Look in the SIMILAR THREADS section at the bottom of the page, that might do the searching for you! :banana:



There are various aftermarket headlamp assemblies available for purchase on eBay and other places. Do some searching there (2002 - 2004 headlamp assemblies are the same). Then ask if other owners have experience with the brand you are considering. I believe some markets had Xenon fitted.


PS: You COULD polish (and coat) your existing headlamps. When you do, don't forget to check the aim...many lights point wrong after bulbs are replaced. I've never felt the need for upgraded lights on our '06 (after tweaking the aim a little higher).

Clean the headlights and get better bulbs, problem solved. Gen 2 crvs do not have brightness issues, previous owner probably put the cheapest possible headlight bulbs in. $25 and problem solved.

i agree 05 06 has 4 h1s no problem but if you put HIDs or LEDs in place of the h4/9003 it will have light scatter blinding oncoming traffic ,i did it on a 2003 so i ended up getting mini projectors HIDs they have a nice light cutoff ,they clipped right in place of the h4/9003 and removed the diffuser, and a relay harness is a must because of the voltage drop the HIDs demand more current on start up after 20 second they pull a lot less or they will have problems starting/flicker , that worked out great for 2 years then the vehicle got totaled in a bad accident, t boned,I replaced the wifes CRV with a 2006 , I got them off e bay,they have a 12 volt actuator that retracts a door for the brights to let more light through ,you just have to figure out how to wire it not plug and play ,if i was going to do another 02-04 i would go with the 5000k though the 6000k has a little blue in it also make sure you get good quality ballasts so its reliable, I would stay away from the LEDs if you want to listen to the AM FM radio ,but they make a h4 mini projector in LED also and would be cheaper than HID setup but spray out RFI/EMI
