Projector headlight

Does any body know the project headlight of the 5th gen works and looks good or not? I found it on ebay, it looks real cool but question about the quality.

Depends on who made them. No after market company makes projector headlights for the 5th gen. They have to be retro fitted. So depending on who made it. Depends on how good they are. Every pair is custom. Some have lexus projectors in them. Some have mercedes. Hell... Some even have S2k headlights.

for $400, you're better off paying a little more and retrofitting to do it the "right way". talk to prelude1897... he's on most if not all prelude boards.

Those ebay projectors use LED in the projector. Thats why you see those wires coming out of the back of them. Supposely they give less light output than halogen bulbs.

go with phillips 4300k and contact the person doing your retro and see if he knows how to do whats called a color mod to the cutoff.


how do you mount the projecter? my freind custom makes everything just check out the sig and look at all hte top end cars hes's done he's big with the 5gen accord but he does any type of car. and he can do any type of projecter/ shoud combo.

For a good blue tint, go with Phillips 6000k bulbs, but for the brightest light output, go with 4300k...I wouldn't suggest going any higher than 6000k bulbs

i disagree, have you experience any color moding at all? you can use 4300k bulbs and still get a blue tint in the cutoff with a color mod its simple. anything above 5000k is pushinging it, you wont be able to see the road as well

uh, just to let you know, you're talking to the guy who does the retrofits...... and he means for an overall blue tint. not just the cutoff. but you're right, anything above 5k is just not practical.. i just dont understand what the big deal is to have BLUE headlights. i think its ugly. mine are 4300 i believe. and they actually look blue to me.

thatrs what i'v been trying to say. lol but you dont need an overall blue tint. a freind of mine who owns the prelude he hass a retro and when i see him comming down the road i see his lights and they have a blue tint. all you need is 4300k and if you want blue tint you get a color mod to the cut-off. besides if their too blue your gonna attract attension your not gonna want, ppl messin with your **** or cops.

For a nice blue tint onto the road and still have great output, go with 6000k bulbs and I wouldn't suggest going any higher than that.. A 5000k bulb is pretty much just a color shifted 4300k bulb, so you'll not going to notice too much of a color change. I've had had all 3 temps of bulbs. I've gone from 4300, to 5000, and now I'm running Phillips 6000k bulbs. LOL, I like how you asked if I've done color modding before. Color modding is just when you add a couple of washers so that the cutoff line itself has a thicker blue/purple cutoff.

He's done plenty of color modding. Desired blue tint in the beam will have to result in a higher kelvin bulb. If you desire a blue cutoff, washer modding is needed. The flicker that is created from a projector is directly due to the physical and optical properties of each projector. Most people want the flicker but make the mistake in assuming that higher kelvin results in more output.

Even the Phillips 85122+ Bulbs are not rated at 5000k, instead they are just ~4300k bulbs that are color-shift resistant.

nah, thats cuz of the angle i took the pic at.

and just for the information. i got a local friend with a prelude. SAME EXACT projector retrofit as mine except he got color mod and i didnt. if you guys decide to get projectors. GET THE COLOR MOD. it looks way cooler. just sitting still it has the same blueish hue to it. but once you start rolling down the road you get all sorts of colors. not just blue purple. but you get green and yellow too. sometimes on mine at certain angles you will get green but mostly blue.

For the price difference between the retrofits and the ebay headlights...I will choose to go with the ebay ones... They are cheaper a price difference of 300 to 400 dollar...

im a firm believer in you get what you pay for... the price difference is there for a reason because what you're buying is cheap crap off ebay. brian makes his from quality OEM parts. and his work is proven. just ask anyone who has bought his headlights.. i dont know about you, but im not gonna be a guinea pig on a new product. if it fails now you gotta pay more to get a new set... and the price difference isnt all that much anyways. the way i see it, if you can afford a set of projectors for a few hundred bucks. you can afford a BETTER set for a few hundred more.

if you want something cheap and fast, dont expect it to be quality
if you want something cheap and quality, dont expect it to be fast
if you want something fast and quality, dont expect it to be cheap.

think about that^
and apply it to the ebay's projectors. you can get the ebay projectors fast, right? i mean, hes got an auction on ebay, that means hes got some available. so that means they are cheap to make.. i dont know about most people, but if it costs me 400 bucks to make a projector headlight housing, im not gonna make a bunch and try to sell them on ebay. so you can guarantee they are pretty cheap to make. and when something is fast and cheap, it aint quality..

from the maker himself:

However, comparing aftermarket parts vs. OEM, of course there is a fragment
of imperfection in that it doesn't come from the original manufacturer, HONDA..


But likewise everything else aftermarket and not modeled after a OEM item ("knockoff")
these lights are a NEWER item, and there are chances of minor defects/imperfections,
which I will service for you guys if they should apply..

I mainly want new headlights simply b/c my old one's are all dingy & yellow like some nasty old teeth. :D

New one's I've seen can be like $600 a set. And, the ebay one's look nice to me. Would like to see a pic w/ some on a car.

Can anyone give some examples of their problems? I think I read dull brightness before... any mounting issues, leaking, etc.?

If the lights aren't that bright, can a better bulb in the head lamp housing improve this? Can anyone who's bought these testify as to how they performed, maybe a picture of them on your car?

These types are all over ebay... many have different names, but they all look the same, clear or black, usually halo projector in the name...

Any advice is appreicated. ... and, if someone knocks those lights, can they provide a link to the lights I "should" be buying?

Thanks!
