Hello everyone.

1) My DRL bulb has died.
Could you please, tell me of what size is the DRL bulb in 2005 RSX?
It's not the high beam bulb, I checked. Apart from the high beam bulb, there is another bulb mounted above the high beam bulb (the one which is DRL bulb).

Together with the size, please advise which one to buy (brand, model). I would really appreciate it. The brightest one and a reliable, please.


2) Also, I want to replace my stock halogen low beam bulbs for something better.
Could you advise which one is the best for halogen?

Which one is the best for LED kits?
And which one is the best for HID kits?
As for LED/HID, I'm looking for "plug and play" with not too much wiring...

Thank you very much!

It's not listed as a DRL, but I'm guessing it's the front sidemarker light? https://www.superbrightleds.com/vehicle/2006-acura-rsx-vehicle-led-lights?make=1&model=1401&year=2006

168/194/921 all fit for the corner light, and the light that sits in the high beam reflector bowl (think those are DRL on the Canadian model) also the same bulb for the license plate.

The cheaper bulbs are a hit and miss, but I haven't had any problems with the more expensive ones from that site. Diode Dynamics also makes good bulbs, but they're a little more pricey.

I bought Sylvania ZEVO LED bulb. The color looks nice as it is first LED light I've ever got in my car. But it's not that bright. Only visible during a night time. But LED as I know should be visible during a day time as well.

Does any one have the same DRL on RSX as me? I mean the mini bulb above High beam bulb? If yes, please advise which bulb is the best.

Thank you.

Here's what the Diode Dynamics HP5 bulbs look like. The sun's directly on the car so you can barely tell, but they're very noticeable during day or night. I'll snap some more later.

Oh, mine looks the same. May be a bit dimmer. Thank you for the pictures. Will wait for evening pictures as well.
