You have to find out type of bulbs that both vehicles use.
Second you need to get a set of projector light housings for those vehicles
you really shouldn't install HID's in halogen housings ( I know people do)

I believe the 2008 Honda Civic take a 9006 bulb for low beam, and a 9005 bulb for high beam. I would get a 4300k, or a 6000k. I would not get any color over 6000k. most kits come with installation guides IF you get a good kit. i would do a little bit of research on which brand of kit you want.

Also take great care in the wattage of the system you get. You may be tempted to get a high wattage but with that comes increased radiant heat from the bulb which will result in melting of your lenses. May offer differant wattage for the same vehicle.

Best to find some fan clubs for each vehicle and see what others are using.

And I agree with Saisofine, I have only used 6k kits as anything after that produces just too much of a blue tint resulting in not only decreased visibility but also more unwanted attention from the popo.

Also if either vehicle uses the same bulb for High and low beams you most likely will need the use of a relay kit, which most sellers will provide at an extra charge but it is well worth the money>hassel of building one yourself. Mine was a whopping 15 extra dollars.

By first look the Rav 4 is a such a kit being the same part number. The honda appears to use different bulbs. Could be wrong though. Good luck

Yes, if the vehicle didn't come w/ HIDs then they are illegal.

Just b/c YOU haven't gotten pulled over doesn't make it legal. I usually drive 5 over the speed limit but I've never gotten pulled over. Does that mean it's legal? No. I know Chevyboi has said he's been pulled over for HIDs before.

The fact remains the same, if they didn't come w/ the vehicle then they are illegal.

you underestimate common vehicle knowledge. Doesnt take anything to look at the housing the bulb is in and know its not a projector therefore didnt come with it.


NOW. Sure there is a glare without a projector in there BUT if the bulb is adjusted properly it wont be a major issue at all for oncoming drivers. The issue is when they are not adjusted. I put HIDs in my bike recently and there is a cut off line you can see reflected on the garage at an angle. Get that line adjusted properly and it wont be in drivers eyes or rear view mirrors. That is super hard to do in raised or hi vehicles. I have HIDs in the stang and several times last year went out with friends to check if they were an issue and after adjustment they werent. I should say that both of my HID kits have diffusers installed so the bulb itself isnt directly visible either.


Illegal? Sure.

But so is lowering the vehicle, tinting windows (at levels we want), tenting tail lights, performance mods, loud exhaust, and so on.

Pick Your Poison I Say.

Headlights & Fogs On. Night of install still not adjusted in this image yet. The cut off line showing on the bushes further down needed to be brought down about 4ft
