Hello all. I've done a search for this but cant find any vendor info. I was looking for white citylights for my b5.5. currently have the philips blue visions but they arent white at all. i recall someone having superbright leds but i cant seem to find where they are sold in the US. can anyone offer any advice or point me to the right direction? thank you!

I went and got my white bulbs from a Honda tuning shop. It looks blue on the outside but lights up white when lit.

be careful with the 6 LEDs bulb...IIRC, it won't fit the citilight bulb holder on B5.5's headlight

I think you need the 4 LEDs one

Comes on with the headlights and also comes on if the headlights are turned on with the engine off as the "Park Light" as we know them.

ycharles, you might be disappointed with the LEDs from superbrightleds if you are looking for a WHITE led. I ordered WHITE and received what were supposed to be WHITE leds but upon install, they look very blue to me. In fact, they don't look much whiter then the above picture of the BLUE leds.

HTHs!

ok, just got my leds yesterday and took a few min to pop in. they are actually a bit smaller than the w5w bulbs. honestly, i got the bluevisions for free and they were a tiny bit whiter than the stock w5w bulbs but still very yellow. these leds are defitely white sans the blue tint. not sure how much brighter 6 vs 4 leds, but i am definitely happy with these. here's the link for the pix i took.

The six led bulb will not go through the city light hole. I pushed and pushed and it would not fit. You can stick in the hole but it will not go through.

They were from superbrightleds. How do yours look? I had the white ones but they were still too blue for me.
