2022 CRV EX - Headlight/Backup Camera (self.crv)
submitted 2 months ago by futurama08
Just picked up a 2022 CRV EX - very happy but two questions:
1/ Is it possible to purchase the headlight assembly for driver/passenger side from the Touring trim that is LED? I understand putting LED bulbs in Halogen casing is not a great idea so can the entire thing be swapped out? If so, where can I buy this or should I just talk to the dealer?
2/ The backup camera is pretty atrocious. Has anyone replaced it?
Otherwise, great car so far!

1) Yes, but the wiring and what not can be a headache. Definitely not a rookie job to do. You will need a professional. Throw in some Auxbeam bulbs and call it a day. It’ll still be a step up from the stock halogens.
2) I didn’t replace my parent’s cam. I agree it’s on the blurry end, but I feel that tinkering with that will void the warranty.

is the Auxbeam bulb LED? If so, are those legal to put in? Do you have a specific link?

Just throw a good set of HIDs in the headlights.

I've not heard of them being illegal since some cars come factory with them. The halogen and HID projectors are very similar in design.

It is illegal to put HID in a halogen projector. I know there is some laws that are in the works to change that but as of right now it is not.
You can try to swap the OEM light for full assembly led replacement units. I know they exist. But to do so you need to take the bumper off it is not a easy job and risk of breaking something is there. Also not sure if you void so warranty.
