Yep, I got the battery harness too. I always forget about that... definitely worth it.

I also want to add HID to my 09 WRX. Would 55 Watt melt or burn anything?

I couldn't say, but 35W is what most HID kits are, and those are plenty bright.

Has anyone done 35w 5000K highs and lows and 35w 3000k fogs? I'm wondering if those numbers would truly give me white highs and lows and yellow fogs

5000K will give you a slight blue tint. 3000K will be yellow.

when you installed the HID kit did you have to cut into the light caps or anything else?

Yes, I had to cut holes in my low beam light caps for the wires to go through, but the kit I got from SharpHID supplied me with a rubber grommet that sealed everything back up nicely. Other than that, everything else (including the optional battery harness) was plug and play.

I should have mine sitting at home, so I'll post up a few photos when I get them installed tomorrow.

Well when I got home, I noticed that I got the HID's but I did not get the battery relay harness. I E-Mailed John so hopefully we can work that out, I plan on running the HID's without the relay for a few days until I get it in the mail (hopefully it won't cause any issues). I also noticed that the prongs inside the socket needed to be bent in order to fit inside the factory connections, anyone else notice this?

Unless you drive on long stretches of highway, and don't ever come across anyone on the roads, running HIDs on your brights is kind of silly. First thing is, they aren't meant for switching on/off constantly. It will wear them out quicker. Second thing is, when they turn on, it takes a few seconds for them to get to full brightness. Which if your area is like around here, by the time they get to full brightness, is when the next oncoming car shows up.

Do you have an image of the battery harness?

So no one has had any issues with the stock projectors that come in the 07-09 models?

I don't have a picture, but I've been running my HID's for about a month now (without the harness, just haven't had time to install it yet), I've only gotten flashed once or twice, but that's when I am going up a hill and my lights are projected higher. The cutoff seems to be pretty good, I just plugged them in and went.

As for the DRL's, you know that it's a law in Canada right? I don't see how you could get by for more then a day before a cop sees you.
