So I installed 6000k Hid's and now it makes like license plate light look like crap! (Btw, easiest and coolest mod ever!)

I was wondering if there are any license plate lights that would match that 6000k light blue tint that I have in the front and one that doesn't throw codes!

Thanks for the help ahead of time! (Links to the products are highly appreciated!! :) )

What is the difference between these and the kit that Ecstuning is selling for around $50?
i would go ahead and spend the money to do it right once, rather than dealing with flickering bulbs and irritation in the future. I've had that kit from ecs for 2 years without a single issue and it looks bright as fack.

If looking for a slightly blue light then is not 6000k that you need

And paying $50 bucks for the exact same bulbs that you can get for $10-20 is not something that you could call a hasel after.. Is not a cv joint

More money doesn't always mean it's better. I've had my eBay ones for 2 years. They've sent me one replacement that whole time and it was free

I got a set off ebay.co.uk, just me around $22 shipped, super bright, nice fit, plugged right in, took about 10 minutes to install. My rear end looks super nice now I have led plate lights to match my tails, especially now that I have the led rings in the inner tails.

Thanks everyone for the advice! I think Im just going to go with the cheap Ebay set and if they don't work out ill just buy the whole kit from ECS.

Off topic: I just bought fog lights, and before I install them I was thinking about tinting them yellow, what do you guys thinks about it? Is it too ricey?

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the 2013 CC's led plate lights fit our cars. I have not done it myself yet, but really want to. All the pictures that I can get makes it look possible. The unit in the CC is one sealed unit, unlike ours which can be opened in a minute to replace the bulb. To me it looks like the whole housing unit with the leds inside would just replace our unit. I think it's a much cleaner look than the bright blue leds you see striking out the back of all the Honda's running now.

pics dont do them justice, the parking side markers have a light blueish halo around them, and the licence plate ones are very strong.
