    On my tourer I have projector lights for my dipped beams. I was of the understanding that you can have xenon/HID lights in them as they create a clean line and stop the light from shining in all directions and blinding oncoming cars.

    Is there a factory upgrade from honda to make them xenon/HIDs or is it only after Market ones?

    Cheers

    Hi Jake,

    To get a stock halogen headlamp and convert to HID using Honda genuine parts is over 4000 pounds, alternative you can use aftermarket HID and here is a guide.

    i think i will give the oe option a miss for that much!!!

    and i don't think i will go down the after marketoption as I've never had much luck with them in the past
    (they kept flickering and blowing)

    Very true that is one of the reasons why my 7th Generation still doesn't have HID, my wife's car has HID and they have been troublefree so far.

    I do have LED through out on both cars and they are brilliant.

    staying on the theme of lights, i have wondered why i have round fog lights, yet every other accord I've seen has oval ones.

    Honda's way of differentiating between a Diesel and Petrol Prefacelift Accord.

    The facelift Accord both got oval fog lights.
