What do you guys think?

I got Mortimotos 5500k and DDM Tuning LynxLed

I also did the interior to all leds

My only issue is when i hit a pothole or a bumpy road my HIDs jiggle.. I'm not sure why that's happening

They jiggle because the base isn't seated properly. There should be 3 screws in the back of the headlight, you can screw those down further, or alternatively, wrap a bit of (high quality) electrical tape around the prongs in the base of the bulb to thicken them.

I have a touring so I can't, but my old car with H11 bulbs had something like these - the bottom "Hi beam" socket, you can see the screws that tighten the bulb down. The civic may or may not have these.

The second part I talked about is this - the three prongs that rotate and lock the bulb in place, you can "thicken" them.

I know! Mine was the first si received by lemon grove honda. No one had it yet when I was calling around. Silver was the only color and they had nothing else. Since I'm a bit impatient, I drove off with it that same day.


I fixed my hids. I managed to realign the gasket.

Pushed in and twisted. I had the gasket upside down so there was wobble.
