Looks like a super clean install and glad your wife is happy with the improved lighting.
I highly doubt anyone outside of this forum would know that's aftermarket let alone the noobs at the dealership. Regardless in this car market you'd probably be better off buying out the lease and then reselling or trading it in yourself.
Only thing you could do to improve it now would be a light bar on the roof. I've been debating putting one in the front grill. You're giving me ideas!!!
Thanks! We actually did buy out the lease. I could have traded it in for almost $6k more right after I bought it out but I would be out the 3 year monthly rental fee, my down payment and would need something else for more money.
The roof lightbar is OK if you have a basket or something and for the purpose like @Flybox1 has
. I found on friends trucks/SUV's even at the beach that they added a lot of glare off the hood and dust glare in front of windshield. The Pod hood bracket ditch lights work pretty good but again some glare. 2x 6" bars would fit on the sides of the H, just need to cut some grill stuff and fabricate mounting. They also make the front bumper license plate mini push bar
looking thing that you can mount a bar to. On the list I will probably cut the lower grill some and add a pair of Diode Dynamics SS3 or SS5 lights. Not sure if driving or combo. My driving lights are always relayed and tied into high beams. If I can't use the high beams because of other cars, I have no reason to blind them with driving lights. My driving lights have always been for distance (Hella Rallye 1000, Rallye 2000, Hella 500 and 550) Now if I'm on my own on rural highway, off road areas then I can use the high beams. WAY back in time I had some that were separate switch. that got old real fast trying to turn off when cars came the other way. On car with small round 4 headlight system "possibly" had some larger wire 250W 12V aircraft landing/taxi lights
. Other cars got Hella or Cibie H4 and H1 headlights with brighter bulbs, relays, wiring etc but all aimed correctly. Mountains roads get dark at night in winter.
The Pilot is daily driver and trip vehicle so a little more subtle but excellent performance is more the goal. The fogs on Pilot will probably be upgraded to DD SS3
or the new Elite
and changed to go on with parking lights and stay on with high beam. If I was off road a lot more than maybe different.
Now if money was more available I would probably add a set of Lightforce HTX 2's
Here is the XPR LP. I just touched it to the battery. It works well and is convenient. My son said same thing on the camera added glare. Not too awful unless you change the camera view to look down toward hitch. The cell camera again makes it look a bit brighter but it is good. This was JUST the XPR no other lights.
