The site has no real help for specific applications. Do the 08+ WRXs use the hi/lo?

I personally don't have a 2008 WRX. I'd suggest consulting with your owner's manual, dealership, or simply pull out one of the bulbs to read what type it is right on the bulb.

Yeah, I've done that before... If you have trouble seeing at night then these are a great addition to safety features, but I hope you don't get upset when people like myself, who have excellent vision day & night, see someone who has lights two times brighter than everyone else and throws up a flash. They look much better from behind the wheel, lol

The '08s do not use a high low. Your high beams are also your driving lights. You need h11 bulbs for your low beams. For anyone who needs help finding the right bulb, go to:

Lamp Replacement Guide (Sylvania's Website)

For anyone out there with a Bug Eye, you'll need a hi/lo kit.

What about a Peanut eye, or whatever they call the 04-05

Do we need a hi/lo kit?

It is much more simple than even that - simply order the kit in the bulb type you need for your application - lows, fogs, highs, etc... You can find out your bulb type easily by pulling out one of your bulbs and reading what it says on it or ask your dealer or mechanic.

If your car uses one bulb for both low and high beams then you need a hi/lo kit. If it doesn't then you need a single beam kit.

Only the 02-03s use a hi/lo. I hope that helps everyone.

02-03s use:
9007 Bulbs (this would be a hi/lo option if you want to maintain hi beams) - You'll also want to either disable the DRLs, or drive with your headlights on to not risk damaging the ballasts or bulbs from having them constantly ignite/turn off, etc. The low beam circuit is what lights up on these models.

04-05s use:
H1s for low beams
9005s for high beams

06-07s use:
H7s for low beams
9005s for high beams

08-09s use:
H11s for low beams
9005s for low beams - it should be noted that driving lights are powered through this circuit. Your car will not always run sufficient power to ignite these. You'd either need to disable your DRLs, or drive with your headlights on to not risk damaging the ballasts or bulbs from having them constantly ignite/turn off, etc. I don't know which lights function for 04-07 WRXs.

Also - another way around the DRL problem, you can have a relay wired up to give full power to them any time the DRLs are on too.

This is great information - thank you for posting it up. You guys know your vehicles much better than me as I don't personally have one - as much as I'd love an STI.
