Default Does a 2004 Honda Civic come stock with HID bulbs?

I have a 2004 Honda Civic and I was wondering, do I need to install a HID Kit or does my car already come stock with an HID kit? If it already comes stock with an HID kit, can I just swap out the stock bulbs for HID bulbs?

When I searched it, all I found were that my high beams are 9005 and my low beams are 9006. They are both Halogens. But my friend's 2003 Honda Accord had 9006 Halogens and all he did was swap out the bulbs for HID bulbs.

2004 civic does not come with HID kit. that is illegal aftermarket lights. although many people have it now that it's pretty much useless for cops to pull you over. HID kits are not just bulbs. It comes with a ballast which is like a battery or amplifier for the bulbs. you connect the wires to the ballast and the bulbs to the ballast as the bulbs are gas charged and not halogen. it's a very easy installment.. basically plug and play. stores such as autozone or napa does not sell HID kits.. you can buy them on ebay or go to local import stores that carries them.. be sure to get the right bulbs. with the installation of the HIDs, you'll lose your hi beam as most HID's does not come with hi beam bulbs unless you buy the Bi-Xenon HID kit which is a little bit more expensive.

hello your car does not come with HID bulbs from factory. if you want a true HID kit that is similar to the same techonology as the BMW, and Benz than is more than a bulb. If you go to your local auto store you will find a bulb called Xenon or HID and is simply a halogen bulb that is painted with blue tint. Those bulbs cost around $35 to $49.99 and is a waste of money. if you want a true HID kit go to we carry top quality kits and true HID colors. Our kits are German made and every kit is plug and play. meaning that is easy to install.

please email us with any questions
