Ok i was just being nice about it earlier, yes you most certainly can put them on your car and you can do what you like nobody stopping you. But when you write a page write up on something that doesnt benefit anyone and expect comments, dont cry when you have ppl "saying" what they want. Heres my opinion bud i dont care what you think, you make the community look horrid. You know how we get the name ricer "YOU". You know how people get blinded by an idiot 16 year old "YOU". Plus if you traffic a forum properly, you would have seen 293837 write ups on HIDs and see the negative feedback. Not one post about is about "omg HIDs are the best". The dont even work properly in iur cars!! U walked into this one. Dug your own grave. Oh by the way u must care u continue to post and wanted our opinion. Now u got it cheers!!

I agree with them on this. You have to realize that ppl are just telling you what they know from experience. These ppl know what they are talking about. Anyone "can" put them on thier car, we are just saying that it might not be a good idea. The ppl posting were being nice about it until you opened the door and got negative. Hope you the best.

I'm sorry that you feel this way. I might've been a bit harsh. But, all my points were valid and I'm clearly stating is what is needed to fix the problem.

Those are two top notch retro fitting sources that have a high reputation of doing good work.

Sorry but no difference in glare that I can notice on MY cars w projectors. Perhaps all hids should be banned as proposed by congress years ago. Anything that might endanger others should be. I hope none of you break the speed limit or any other traffic laws that could cause someone to be injured. Loud exhausts hurt my ears.

And succeeded in doing. These are illegal for road use. That's why the box that it came in says "off-road use only".

Stock 08 WRX headlights with HID h11 drop in kit (Glare)

Well since this thread seems to be a hot topic. I for one cant stand HID's. Done the right way or wrong way.
I wont ever put them on my car because I dont care to piss the other drivers off that are driving towards me or in in front of me. I always seem to get the one $sshole every mourning that blinds me with his gas guzzler truck so I dislike them even more every day.
I know people that went messing with headlights kits that resulted in melted wires and blown fuses. Good luck to anyone that wants these lights on their car, don't be surprised if you have some kind of misfortune with them, be it malfunctions,tickets or accidents.

CHEERS!
