Is there a reason for replacing the bulbs on an Acura RDX?

Even though the newer models may have LED headlights, the rest of the bulbs will probably be HID. Owners that want to unify the look of all the light bulbs on their cars is a good enough reason to want to replace them.

Also, even If your car has been only several years old, you may encounter a situation where some of the bulbs may burn out and stop working. Non-functional lights, especially exterior ones, can be dangerous and may even get you in trouble with the law. To ensure that you avoid situations like that one, replacing the busted ones with LEDs is an excellent reason.

What do you get with replacing the stock bulbs with LEDs?

LEDs have many advantages over the traditional halogen or HID bulbs.

Owners that do a lot of driving at night will like this one. LED bulbs can shine a lot brighter than the other types of bulbs meaning that replacing your headlight bulbs with LEDs will improve your visibility.

People often think that lights that shine bright do not last long, but it is the exact opposite when it comes to LED bulbs. The technology behind them enables them to last much longer than the halogen or HID bulbs. Comparing both sides, you are looking at bulbs that can work at least five times longer than the outdated ones.
