    What I really want to do now is:

    1) Add a body kit to give the car a heavy look (Front, Rear Bumpers, Front lip and Rear Spoiler)
    2) Add an aftermarket double din head unit and under seat bass box
    3) To avoid any more damage to paintwork, due to kids scratching etc, get it Vinyl wrapped in Matt black or Matt Grey and all chrome features changed to Matt Red/Maroon

    Any suggestions that you want to share or anyone else?
    Especially on point 3 about getting it wrapped.

    1) you could look for some OEM spoilers, or go aftermarket like a Mugen one

    2) I assume you have a Sat Nav screen at the moment ?

    3) I'm not a big fan of full vinyl wraps of cars

    Sorry for the late response Speedy, I have heard about the Mugen rear spoilers, any recommendation where to search for it?

    As for wraps. I'm not a fan either, but its either wrap or repaint... Im not enjoying getting small chip marks.

    And yes I have the Premium Sound System with the Sat Nav screen

    Have you got the links for the bulbs you've used?
    They would be really helpful to other members.

    We can pull them across from Japan, but be aware they're pretty pricey.

    Below is all the bulbs that you would require for a 7th Generation Honda Accord

    If you want, the lights are all from Horizon LED's (Horizon LEDs | LED Fog Bulbs | Buy Car LED Bulbs

    EXTERIOR FRONT LIGHTS
    1) DIPPED BEAMS - H1 XENON KIT 35w or 55w (Higher power) @ 5000k (White light) or 6000k (Slight hint of Blue)
    2) MAIN BEAM - PHILIPS 12V 55W HALOGEN BULB
    3) FOG LIGHTS - H11 XENON KIT 35w (recommended) or 55w (Higher power) @ 5000k (white light) or 6000k (slight hint of Blue)

    EXTERIOR LED LIGHTS
    1) FRONT SIDELIGHTS - T10 SMD 13 LED BULB
    2) REAR SIDELIGHTS - T10 SMD 5 LED BULB (RED)
    3) REAR BRAKE/TAIL LIGHT - T20 7443 CREE 50W (RED)
    4) 3rd BRAKE LAMP/MIDDLE – T20 7440 LED (RED)

    5) BOOT LIGHT – T10 SMD 5 LED

    The site is really easy to navigate and you'll be able to find the bulbs with ease.

    If you plan to do the Xenon kit for the front lights, you may want to browse other websites as you may find something slightly cheaper.

    Hope this helps

    Top info. I think we had a thread that was suppose to amalgamate all the bulb info. Let me try and find so we can add the above list to it.

    Ouch, that's not to positive. But for an accord 7th Generation its a good place to go and buy as they have them all.
    I agree that their customer service isn't great, I have a friend who owns a Mazda RX-8 and he inquired about the lights for that a few months ago and has heard nothing.

    But for my experience, when ever a light has gone faulty, 1 most recent as 2 weeks ago, I have been sent free replacements, but the main thing is that the lights for the Accord 7th Generation are above, I guess people can buy from where ever they choose, I just bought them from Horizon and they haven't disappointed me personally as of yet :Smile:
