The last mile to full LEDs - the visors?

    I’ve replaced the last known (to me) conventional filament bulbs on the Clarity with pure white LEDs in the visor mirrors. It is now brighter & whiter. Are there any remaining regular bulbs?

    The cost is negligible on AliExpress:

    Has anyone found a warmer LED bulb for the visors?

    You've discovered the reason Honda used incandescent bulbs for this single application. I'm certain the company has the complete set of LED catalogs.

    I ordered the set of 10 warm white LED bulbs on Ebay. It is on the way. Will report the result when I get it installed Screenshot_2018-09-04-22-16-05.png

    Please post pictures if these work. I’d definitely be interested in purchasing the same ones if the light is at least somewhat warm.

    Sure I will. I have ordered this LCD bulbs more than a month ago but it still hasn't arrived yet. Sometime it takes about 2 months to get items from China sellers on Ebay.

    Just received the LED bulbs today and got installation. The color temperature of those LED are almost the same with the original, just brighter. But I didn't see it too glare. So far it is perfect for replacement.
    In the picture, the LED is on the left side.
    I bought a pack of 10, so if someone in Metro Vancouver is interested just PM me to take 4.

    I'm sure Honda would be very happy if you'd send them a link to those warm-spectrum LEDs. Well, maybe not, based on their response to every other contact described on the forum.

    I received the bulbs and replaced them today. They are whiter than the originals but not too white so they might pass with the Mrs. One thing that I found easier is that if you pry up with a small flathead screwdriver from the bottom of the cover they pop right off without any problems. Took less than 5 minutes to replace all.

    Do you have some pictures to show us? In my case, the LED bulb temp is even warmer than the original one, just brighter
    (you can see it clearly in my previous post, the LEDs is on the left in each pic). That is weird since you bought them from the same seller as me.

    I must have a different batch. They look like 6000K in color so they are white, very close to the reading light.

    I went a bit of a different route and bought the single led ones with the cool white bulbs and soldered on warm white SMD's I am pretty happy with the results. A bit warmer then the dome lights, but good for skin tone.

    I have a bunch of warm white leds left. If anyone wants their cool white ones swapped out, PM me.
