HID's

How well do the HID upgrade kits work with the stock lenses? I read somewhere they work better with the lense designed for HID. So I'm asking here to the people with HID's and the stock WRX lense. How well do they work?

My HID's light up everything, no problem with the way the light is projected. Just make sure you adjust them after the install. Mine are made by Hella but have a no-name logo to keep the price down, I still paid around $500 for them, well worth it

My HID's are similar to the top photo as well....
The front of the car had absolutely no holes...
Just pure white light.... Absolutely cool!
Like Ian's, I had to re-aim it a bit ....
I used a Ray Brig HID kit..
Cost around $580 (converted from my currency)

All you have to do is order the bulb style that you have and it will plug right in. This goes for any car. Example, if you have H1 bulbs order the H1 HID kit

man it is hard to decide. I am either going to to spend money on a HID kit or PIAA Extreme white bulbs. Any opinions? I have already changed out my turn signals with 27 LED white bulbs and my park lights are white LEDs now as well. both sets of LED bulbs ahve a slight blue hue that is simialar to the STi's 4k color temp.

Replacing your bulbs does not compare to HID's, you want brighter lights get HID's

Yeah... I might actually find a justification for HID's, since I can get 5000k's for under $300
