Bump, someone must have tried LED headlight bulbs in the stock headlights??
Decent LED bulbs have come down in price and good Halogen bulbs aren't much cheaper if at all. Guys also like loading mods on the old CRV's and LED upgrades are always popular.Maybe not. A lot of people who like older vehicles like these prefer regular light bulbs for the headlights.
Also, CR-Vs are popular because they're cheap to drive. LEDs are expensive.
No not projectors just drop in LED H4 globes that fit where the traditional Halogen globes would go. My question is how well does the stock CRV headlights/reflectors take LED H4 globes, sometimes the LED's work well with older reflectors, sometimes not.The globes you speak of I gather you are referring to projectors? It's not so much the headlight (except if the housing will take the mod easily or not) as the quality and design of the projector. Projector mods basically eliminate the use of the reflector. But if the headlight lens itself looks like it has lines and such through it, the lens is used partially to control the beam and will cause some weird looking effects in the beam pattern.
I can't remember if Gen 1 lens are pretty much smooth or not.
Also you are right, losing older vehicles is VERY POPULAR because LED systems are not that expensive anymore and most of us can't afford or can't justify a new vehicle then trying to mod it when older ones are easier and mods are far cheaper.
