Bought this little gem almost two weeks ago.It's a 2008 EX with only 62k miles. Replaced the headlights which were just starting to get a little cloudy. I like the updated look although having them installed for a day now, I'm a little concerned that they may be too bright at night (might be my imagination). Also including a picture of my 2017 EX (it's more my wife's than mine as I always give her the newer vehicle) that I drive mostly on the weekends.

As long as you don't get flashed for having your brights on, when you don't, I guess you are good.

Nice! So, those are not OEM headlight assemblies? What brand are they and what bulbs do they have in them? LED's? Details! We need details!

LOL. I'm not sure what bulbs they are. They came with the assembly which is not OEM (but they fit perfectly). I found them on Ebay. Here's the link:

Thanks for that link - I will check them out. Looks like they just use the stock halogen bulbs, but with the projector enclosures you could put the LED's in.

Now that I've had more time to look at it, you are right (I had them installed by my mechanic so wasn't sure). In that case, I guess they aren't unusually bright as they're the same bulbs I've always had. Now I want LED's! Haha!

Congrat on the V's. The headlight are good looking, how are the light output from those projector? I was looking at those in the past, was skeptical about their light output, so I went with the retrofit route. If the output pattern on the light are good, then putting LED in will significantly increase down road visibility. Some pictures will be nice as well.
