Looks great! It eliminates the ugly round driving lights on the front. Good job!

More important is how well they function. If Honda, who spends billions a year on R&D, can only manage to give the Accord marginal quality OEM LED reflector headlights, then I hate to think how poor these are.

I would be more concerned with how the car's computer will react. Changing one set of light with another of same or similar resistance is not a big deal, but when incandescent bulbs are swapped for leds, which consume a lot less energy, that significant change in load confuses the computer, then weird lights start to come on the dash.

Does the LED lights change colors? Looking to get some new lights to compliment the batman theme I have going for my car.

Nice accord by the way.

Not in a Honda. It’s not a German car with headlight out notifications.

I swapped out all the standard interior bulbs in my 2019 with LEDs, have the OEM LED puddle lights, added 2 pairs (front and rear) of aftermarket interior footwell LED lights, then swapped out the 2 front and 1 rear roof LEDs with larger/brighter LED units, added an LED bulb to the trunk light (replaced the incandescent bulb with an LED) and everything was working fine until I decided to change the trunk LED to a brighter one (this one -
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000274831224.html )

It's brighter than what was in there but only worked consistently for the first few minutes. Then, over the next couple of days, I would notice it working only intermittently. Then the other day ALL my interior lighting, including the puddle lights, went kaput. Removing it and going back one step to the simple trunk light LED bulb swap got everything working again.

At this point, I don't know if it's just that particular unit that's no Bueno and caused everything to crap out OR if that (on top of all the other lighting mods) was the straw that broke the camel's back... I ended up trashing the LED units/electronics on that light and saving the housing, board, and two prong connectors to try out a different trunk light (long thin multiple LED strip)...

Just change the bulb in your trunk light housing with an LED; you don’t need an entire unit with housing. I have various LEDs swapped in the car with no issues. More load causes issues, not less.

I did that to begin with but I was aiming for more light and it was under $5 so I thought I'd give it a shot... I also thought that the LEDs would provide less load than incandescent and going over wouldn't be an issue but something made it not work out...

More load causes issues that are easy to diagnose and straightforward to fix. Less load, when it is significantly less as is in case of incandescent vs led when the load is so small it does not even register, causes issues that may seem irrelevant at first and difficult to diagnose. For example there is a phenomenon in motorcycles called 4-way blink problem. This is a well documented common issue. Late model cars have much more complicated electronics so it will be a while for LED replacement issues to be researched and cataloged.
