Default 2013 Honda LED Look-alike Bulb?

I have a Honda Accord 2013 Sport

Has anyone ever noticed that for the new 2013 honda accord headlights, with the exception of the Touring, there is a LED look-alike underside on the headlights and there is IN FACT a separate light therefore indicating you can change the lightbulb to a brighter white to make it look more LED like or even change it to blue to make your car look pretty unique. I was wondering if anyone knows what bulb is needed to change out this fake LED part on the 2013 honda accord headlight and how can you change it out?

I believe the underside LED looking lights are the parking lights bulbs.

I noticed mine blink when I hit the fob button to lock it.

Well everybody i went underneath my hood and checked out the bulb and discovered it is a W5W bulb. Meaning that is the size of the bulb and the watt is 5 watts. Here is a picture of the bulb

If you look inside the hood toward your lights you can see where the bulb is by using common sense haha! And i believe the manual book for the 2013 honda accord calls these lights to be the parking lights

You can follow the instructions but i just went from above through the hood. You have to kinda reach but it isn't too hard!! Lastly don't be afraid to turn the bulb a little hard to take out the parking/DRL because i literally spent about half an hour being to scared i was going to be scared of breaking my light but sometimes you just got to grow a pair haha.

This is how my lights looks now after changing the bulb to LED blue

Looks nice right!? haha.
And one last thing, i found the lights to be a little too blue for me and hopefully no one will copy me haha but I looked everywhere for a pretty cool unique color and i found a teal LED bulb!! I think it looks really nice with my 8000k HID lights!!

I hope the information i gave was very useful for all those people who wanted nuts lights with their 2013 Honda Accord!!

How much it cost for the new Accord 2013 model ?.
Overall does it look nice ?. How about the engine performance and torque power ?.
Does it looks better than the Accord 2012 model ?.
