So the reverse lights are useless in backing up in the dark. I even replaced with high power LEDs. And minimal improvement. Seems the engineering of this light housing was not followed through. I have the same problem on our 2012 MDX.
Acura needs to address this on the 2016 or MMC because the reverse lights simply do not sufficiently cast enough light to see what you might be backing into. That is one of the few disappointments with this car and should be viewed as a genuine safety concern. Maybe if they were made more directional rather than their current interplay/position with the camera. It could just come down to the angles.
