the dome lights had good bulbs. the lights were dim and sometimes would not come on when doors opened. i paid 50.21 for an entire base (light system part @ honda dealor) + $7.90 for 2 bulbs. then i was charged by installer 126$'s. so new bulbs want work. u need the entire base system/ excluding the sunglass port. (two systems)

My radio went out mid-2009 about the same time that my co-worker's '03 Accord EX's radio went out. Honda's only solution is to buy a replacement unit which costs around $800.
