Those are absolutely fine. Infact you dont need to drop 200 dollars for lights, its just that it was my thinking.. that replacing a bulb in the MDX is not as easy as other cars, some people remove the entire bumper, some people struggle with various tools including mirrors to get their hands through the closed area under the hood.. hence i wanted to take good opportunity of this replacement and install something that will last longer and look awesome.
Instead of going for a non-brand bulb from jdmtoys, i would suggest you to look into a reputed brand that can be brought for around a 100 bucks for a pair, something like a GE bulbs that manufactured under the name MTEC, you could look at these as well.
"US Distributor" Mtec GE 6000K D2R Xenon HID Bulbs | eBay
They are a genuine sellers on ebay for MTEC bulbs.
(Curious) Are the sockets the same for the door courtesy/trunk courtesy, license plates, and corner markers?
Yes all those are 168/194 socket, but make sure you dont buy something taller or wider that wont fit the housing of the bulbs in the MDX.
You can reach out to Fab he has everything that you need. Else just follow either LionSpeeds tutorial in the first link above, or just get the ones i posted.
Also, I can use any 9005 for high beam correct?
Very few members in here have changed their high beams, not saying you dont need to as well, but we rarely use them, so why to take all that hassle.
I came across several threads that mention where using some aftermarket bulbs, they get an error message in the console screen. What lights do that apply to? just DRL?
This is a hit or miss, many members installed the DRL led, and got away with it, and few hit upon errors after a few days/weeks/months.
I suggest either wait for V3 Triton by V-Leds which is due to be lauch by November end, or just get this one.

I have also received these bulbs recently, and i am installing them as its been shipped, so far i have installed the footwell leds for driver and passenger with ultra blue Festoon 31mm leds, have changed the leds on both the Vanity mirrors, changed the license plate leds.. however i am wary about changing the leds on the door courtesy.
Was reading around the forum, and realised lots of members have faced the wrath of mdx's electronic circutory being fried when they replaced their door courtesy leds, specifically the rear doors. I guess there is a safe technique on how to install those door courtesy leds, without blowing a fuse, or frying up your electronic circuits. A lot of members did not face this issue.
I am also waiting for a reply from the forum members asking them about how to avoid this issue. There's not much traffic on the forum these days, like back in the days few yrs back. Lots of members who have installed the leds are not at all active.
Others are just silent lurkers.
