White Bulbs?

2756 Views 31 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  TheDarkKnight
Hello everyone,
When I bought my CRV I didn't realise it had the old fashioned reflector lights with yellow bulbs. I had assumed (lesson learned there!) that it had more modern headlights with lenses - the other models I test drove did not have yellow lights like this. The photo doesn't really show how yellow they are. Has anyone found a bulb that makes the lights match the daytime running LEDs? I've seen LED bulbs on Amazon but when you read the description they all say they aren't road legal in the UK! Is there a legal way to make the main bulbs match the white light of the LEDs without replacing the whole headlight units (which I'm loathe to do)?
Thanks 馃槉

I'm happy to do it, or, if you wish to collate the material, then thats no problem either. Just highlighting that the "value" may be limited.

:)
Yea I'd be happy to work on it, we could put the material in your "Resources" thread !?

The value may not be measurable though, it would serve just as reference, it doesnt have to be commented upon.

I would primarily look for PDF's and/or images of brochures.

PS: apologies Persephone for hijacking your thread.
No worries - send me a Private Message and we can work on it together :)

What did you use for the interior lights - one of those packs from Amazon or did you go to a garage?

5th Gen has LED lights already.

For your vanity lights you need:


For the map lights & glove box & rear boot lights you need:


Not sure what other lights you need.

Post some pics, and I will tell you what else you need.
