Looks good! Have you got any pics of Accords with LEDs in various holes as all the ones I've seen behind red plastic look much worse than standard, would be interesting to see what better quality LEDs look like.

congrats on your new start up. I think it's a great business with cars switching more n more to led even laser lighting you'll stand out with your emphasis on quality.

 

I only briefly checked your site but do you do 35w slim kits? All the ones I have tested have been inferior to fatty balasts.

 

Thanks Salim, yes we stock those slim ballasts along with a 2 year warranty on them too. Do you need the Canbus or Non Canbus ones?

Hi Trev, not sure what you mean, when you say red plastic I am assuming the brake and tail lights? 

 

I have full LED conversion on my Accord and for the bulbs behind red plastic you really need to buy CREE LEDs which have SMD LEDs around the edge so they also fill up the cluster with light as well as the projected CREE beam out of the housing. Most importantly you need RED CREE bulbs and not white as they will just look horrible through the red.

Yeah I said on here a while ago that white LEDs don't seen to produce enough of a range of frequency for anything to show through the red filter of the lens, it's just that I've tried a few different LEDs in my rears and they always look pap!

 

So would you be able to put together a post with the recommended bulbs for the various gen Accords?

 

For my 7th:

These in red for the rear lights?

These in white for reverse?

 

Which 7443s for brake bulbs? These? It doesn't give the 2 outputs just says 16W - so is it 32W for brake output?

Are indicators 7440 as well? So same as the rears but in amber? Or would 30W or 50W be better? Are the fronts the same?

Right Guys,

 

Below is the compete list of what bulbs the 7th Generation Accord 2003-2008, takes if your looking to do a full LED conversion like myself. I believe the 8th Generation Accord is very similar if not then the same. I am sure Brett will be able to confirm with us all. Please note that you don't need any CANBUS bulbs unless you like a particular bulb which only comes in a CANBUS model.

 

 

Interior LED Lights

 

  • Front Courtesy Lights = x2 31mm LED Festoon Bulbs

Link - PURE WHITE

 

 

  • Rear Courtesy Light = x1 31mm LED Festoon Bulb

Link - PURE WHITE

 

 

  • Driver & Passenger Door Cards = x2 501/T10/W5W Wedge LED Bulbs

Link - PURE WHITE

 

 

  • Glove Box & Boot Light = x2 501/T10/W5W Wedge LED Bulbs

Link - PURE WHITE

 

 

  • Vanity Mirrors = x2 Special Sized Festoon LED Bulbs (we don't stock these yet, but if there is demand for them from Accord owners then I will get them)

 

 

Exterior LED Lights

 

  • Front Sidelights = x2 501/T10/W5W Wedge LED Bulbs (the Accord has a lot of room in its headlamps so you could go for a longer bulb as in the link - more light output)

Link - PURE WHITE

 

 

  • Front Indicators = x2 7440 Wedge LED Bulbs (if you want them to be seen I recommend going for CREE LED bulbs - I have tried and tested both)

Link - AMBER - we have a choice of 5W, 16W, 30W and 50W, I personally use 30W in mine, you will also need resistors for these to fix the fast flashing, I am still to add the resistor packs to our website, will update the thread with the link soon.

 

 

  • Rear Indicators = x2 7440 Wedge LED Bulbs (if you want them to be seen I recommend going for CREE LED bulbs - I have tried and tested both)

Link - AMBER - we have a choice of 5W, 16W, 30W and 50W, I personally use 50W in mine as they are important bulbs, you will also need resistors for these to fix the fast flashing, I am still to add the resistor packs to our website, will update the thread with the link soon.

 

 

  • Rear Sidelights (the two bulbs fitted within the boot lid) = x2 501/T10/W5W Wedge LED Bulbs (you can only fit the ones in my link, limited space here)

Link - RED

 

 

  • Rear Brake/Tail Lights = x2 7443 LED Bulbs (if you want them to be seen I recommend going for CREE LED bulbs - I have tried and tested both)

Link - RED - we have a choice of 5W, 16W, 30W and 50W, I personally use 50W in mine as these are important bulbs.

 

 

  • Third Brake Lamp/Middle Brake = x1 7440 LED Bulb (if you want them to be seen I recommend going for CREE LED bulbs - I have tried and tested both)

Link - RED - please only go for the 5W Retro/16W option due to the design of the housing, the 5W Retro and 16W disperses the best light output in full 360 degrees.

 

 

  • Reverse Light = x1 7440 LED Bulb (if you want them to be seen I recommend going for CREE LED bulbs - I have tried and tested both)

Link - WHITE - I use the 50W in mine because it actually helps with reversing at night, that said the 16W and 30W is better than the factory fitted ones, I have smoked rear tints so hence why I use the 50W.

 

 

  • Rear Fog = x1 7440 LED Bulb (if you want them to be seen I recommend going for CREE LED bulbs - I have tried and tested both)

Link - RED - I used the 30W in mine, as the design of the actual Accord's rear fog has a built in projector so helps with better light output, although you could go for the 16W or even the 50W!

 

 

 

Xenon/HID/Fog Solutions

 

  • Front Dipped Beam = H1 Xenon HID Conversion Kit either 35W or 55W, you don't need CANBUS. 55W is slighter better and brighter and goes a much longer distance. Colour temperatures are 5000K, 6000K, 8000K, see the link for more details about this. I use 6000k as it matches better with the side light LEDs as the Accord even has the blue tint on the headlamp housing.

Link - if you really want to go all out then the Fast Start Slim Kit is our latest one. Fast start simply fires up and gives full brightness within 3 seconds, so like your OEM BMW, Audi, Mercedes etc... traditional HID kits will always have a slight warm up period of around maximum of 30 seconds, which is normal for them.

 

 

  • Main Beam = H1 Xenon HID Conversion Kit either 35W or 55W, I would not suggest it because they are not suitable for flashing, because of the warm up time. Even if you want to go for the fast start kit, it will soon die with all the flashing as the ballasts are not designed for that. I would stick to 55W high quality halogens such as Philips/Osram. Unless you use your main beam a lot (constantly on - country roads) then it is possible to fit Xenons, just buy two HID kits.

 

  • Front Fog Lights = H11 Xenon HID Conversion Kit 55W or 50W Cree LED Bulbs - I have Xenons in mine as they are better and act more like fog lights but you can also fit H11 Cree LED bulbs in them, depends on your choice wether you want purpose or style. Both links below.

Link - PURE WHITE Cree LED

or

Link - Xenon HID Kits 35W/55W (55W is ideal for fog lights)

 

 

 

Right thats the complete list for the Accord, if I have missed anything then let me know, please note that the indicators on the 7th Generation Accord are already LED. If you want to do a full conversion then just go through the list and add them to the basket as you go along, even if you don't want a full conversion you can still do the same with the bulbs which you do want, that way you won't be confused and keep having to come back & forth and checking etc... Please be vary of any stock delays, and remember that all bulbs apart from CREE LEDs are sold in pairs.

 

Any questions then please ask me on this thread, or drop me and email at Info@HorizonLEDs.co.uk. Check out our other products at www.HorizonLEDs.co.uk, remember you get 10% off all orders and free delivery over £50!!!

Hi J4JAV

 

I have seen your YouTube video recently - showing the Cree LEDs. Very nice.

 

 

Nice of you to include a list of suitable bulbs, i was going to ask you this question. Well done in pre-empting requests.

 

I do have a question - do you sell or can you get the HID ballasts that fit inside the lights, by that i mean behind the dust cover?

 

Thanks

Hi DMW,

 

Unfortunately we don't sell any small HID ballasts unless you want to go down the LED option which you can fit inside the headlamp. But HIDs are always better for the low beam/dipped beam. You can actually fit the ballasts to the original location where the OEM ones go, under the headlight. All models which don't have factory fitted Xenons have this space and all our are water and dust proof :-)

 

Thanks,

 

Jav

Hey Guys & Girls,

 
Sorry its been a long time since we last posted on here, hope your all doing well! We now have the H1 Cree LEDs in stock and we have tested this model too. They were tested on a 2007 Honda Accord, which had the same issues as the Civic (the rather tight H1 bulb opening, which wouldn't allow previous H1 generations to be fitted). Here is the new range of the H1 LED Headlight kits which we now stock: -
 
 
Here is the bulb kit used in this test: -
 
 
The difference between the two is firstly the design, the Generation 1 is a fan based kit and the Generation 3 is a copper heat dissipation belt based kit. The Generation 1 uses Cree LEDs and the Generation 3 uses Philips Lumileds, the brightness is the same for both and they both will fit the Civic. 
 
Below you will see a video which we have made to show how they perform. Of course in reality these are much better, a video only can show a limited amount. The issue we had with these is that we cannot flash the main beam only without the dipped beam switching on too, seems most Honda's operate this way. 
 
So we let the HIDs cool down fully hence why you can see the discoloured blue/purple startup effect as they start to warm up when we flash the main beam. The pure white is the main beam, further in the video you will see the distance these can reach when activated. The furthest sign post (black and white arrows on the roundabout) is just slightly over 0.4 miles according to the trip computer. 
 
 
So in a nutshell although they are not extremely over powering as HIDs which used to be in the main beam, but they are purposeful as they can be used for flashing and there is no warm up time like HIDs, even the Fast Start HIDs we sell will not warm up quick enough to flash, something which a lot of drivers in the UK tend to use. Also when you use these to flash the LED driver does not get damaged over time like the HID Ballasts, so its an all round good product especially for those who want to match their main beams with their Xenon HID kit.
 
Now you may be wondering which one to go for, well the Generation 1 is only available in 5000K and the Generation 3 is available only in 6500K. Depending on your HID kit, you have a choice here, but if you have OEM factory fitted xenons then the 5000K is going to be the best match.
 
As always if you need any help or information, just let us know. For further enquires or order enquiries you will get a faster response from Forums@HorizonLEDs.co.uk, as we don't always monitor the forums as regular.
 
Currently at time of posting this we have stock of the Generation 1 H1 available, the Generation 3 does have some delays and is on pre order only. We will be getting this back into stock very soon, but please email us for a more accurate date as we are still taking pre orders for this as we speak. 
 
Thanks for reading!
