    HID reverse lights

    So being that i like limo tint on all my vehicle's, i recently had to upgrade the reverse lights so i could actually see behind me. I retrofitted a set of HID's into the reverse lights and its been great! my question is, does anyone know what type bulb is currently in the reverse light on the civic's? i want to order a kit for my civic as well (once i get one of course) and just trying to judge if it will work on this one. thx

    Hey that's a good idea actually. TO be honest the civic's reverse lights are already pretty bright, no trouble seeing behind when I reverse

    Could be different on a sedan(8th) though since the light is smaller. on the coupe the light reflector area is huge, apparently on the new gen they look pretty huge too, so I'm guessing they'll be pretty bright too

    I would be far more worried about the brake light part...you know, the one that tells people you are stopping.
