Our HIDextra HID conversion kits are designed to be compatible with almost any vehicle on the road today. We’ve seen that HIDs are most common on European and luxury vehicles, but what about the popular makes on the road? Aftermarket HIDs are the most common upgrades for any vehicle, regardless of the year. And you don’t have to wait until your boring halogen headlights go out before you upgrade.
This is a rare case of halogens lasting 10+ years. But upgrading to HIDs is always better late than never. Check out this HID installation on Mike’s 2002 Honda Accord (6 cylinder, 4 doors).
It seems like for this year, make, and model, the bulb may be locked into place via a twist lock. Simply remove any plastic coverings to get to the bulb socket itself and twist the base to remove the original halogen bulb. A screwdriver was not needed. Don’t forget to use gloves -- this will help keep oil smudges from getting onto the HID bulb.
HIDextra Guru: Mike, do you see a difference compared to your halogens?
Mike: [Laughs] Absolute big difference, not only in straight ahead vision distance but side to side or lateral acuity is greatly improved.
