Arrow Want some LEGAL headlights for my '01 Civic

Hey guys,

Totally new to the forums and just spent the last hour reading a bunch of DIY's and a bunch of threads. I recently bought an '01 Honda Civic. Had a lot of stuff already done to it, so that's pretty cool.

One of the things I would like to do is get some new headlights instead of the stock headlight bulbs. But HID's are supposedly illegal?

So can anyone point me to a link where I can buy some bright headlights that will fit my car? I'm not into the blue or purple headlights. I want more like a diamond or crystal white color.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Try Sylvania Silverstars, you can get them at Autozone. Be prepared to replace them within six months to a year though. Aftermarket bulbs typically don't last very long.
