Cool 2016 Accord Sport Headlight low-beam bulb?

What size bulb is in the low-beam of the 2016 Accord Sport Sedan? Is it still H11? (Looking for HID Kit)

quick question. i am looking at h11 hid bulbs on amazon.com and they have an option to enter in your vehicle information to see if the bulb fits. i've entered in 2016 honda accord and it says h11 doesn't fit. i've read that our bulb is h11 but i am wondering why it doesn't register on certain websites as being "fit" for 2016 accords ... is there something i am missing?

It will fit. I had my high and low beam replaced and got H11 light installed.

HID kits are not good. You have to retrofit with proper TL or S2000 projectors.

Here is your easiest website to get retrofit parts. I am buying mine next month and driving to NY to install it.

Dude, Accords 2013+ come with projectors.
No retrofit needed.
namngo1 go ahead and get your HID kit.

Here is a bulb chart for your viewing pleasure:

2016 Accord Sport Headlight low-beam bulb?

Lightwerkz will set up up with unbelievable output in a retrofit. An S2000 will blow out any bulb you can put in the factory projector. I'm doing my retro soon.

This is my S2000 projector after I tuned them



Camera doesn't pick up the width but it's ridiculous. This was just one projector.


Also an HIDPLANET member is selling a mint pair of S2000 projectors. He's been trying to sell for awhile. You might be able to offer $180 for them. Good seller too. I bought the Denso ballast he was selling a few months back.

Stick with the stock projectors so you won't blind in coming traffic.
While the projector pics above provide great light output, consider other drivers.
You will save money as well.

A proper retrofit will not blind on coming traffic. As you can see with that projector there is no light above the cutoff. As long as those are aimed where your stock cutoff is you're golden. Adding anything other than halogens to a halogen projector is more likely to blind on coming traffic.

I understand where you are coming from. It's more preference and proper alignment as you hhave said basically. But in your screenshots the horizon of light output is higher than a normal cars cutoff. Which is why I even brought up blinding other drivers. I'm not here to argue.
I also recommended using the stock projectors to save namngo1 some money. I was looking out for their best interest. Good day, cheerio!

That's just a picture of the projector. It's not installed in a headlight. As you can see its sitting in the trunk of my old car to get get some output shots

Also in the video I posted I am moving the projector up and down with my hands.

Sticking with the halogen projector will definitely save you money but if you are looking to do something it may be best to either drop in a 4G TL or another projector if you're skilled enough or can send it out to be done.

I think there was a misunderstanding. I recommended HID, not Halogens.
Anywho, no big deal.
namngo1 it's up to you!

This is amazing! Thank you for retrofitting. Can you match other OEM ballasts? I remember TRS recommended Mitsubishi for Accords, but they don't have them in stock anymore. I wonder what would be a good choice, I am trying to stick to OEM only. I looked at Denso as well.
