Subaru WRX Replacement HID Bulbs

These replacement OEM-size HID bulbs will upgrade your WRX's OEM bulbs, which are slightly warm in color, to a cool white, modern color. These are quality bulbs, with better performance than most other generic ones on the market. They will not flicker, and they will work every time you turn them on.

Manufacturer: Diode Dynamics has been distributing replacement OEM HID bulbs for over six years, and we have evaluated nearly every bulb manufacturer on the market. We've seen the best, and the worst, and after testing them all, we selected CNLight, because their bulbs are always superior in performance and last longer than others on the market. Look around, and you'll see other top suppliers also providing these bulbs, although some brand them under their own name. CNLight is simply the best aftermarket HID bulb manufacturer currently on the market. Even if you don't purchase them from us, make sure you get CNLight!

Bulb Construction: As we said, CNLight manufactures superior HID bulbs. What does that mean? All HID bulbs have basic parts: connectors, a plastic base, a device that holds the glass tube, and the glass tube, or bulb, itself. Most bulbs use plastic bases that are made up of multiple pieces and a plastic holder for the glass tube. CNLight bulbs use a one-piece base design, and a ceramic holder, which isolates heat from the base, providing much better reliability. It's more expensive to do it that way, but it's the best way to do it!

Color: The most common issue with cheap replacement bulbs is that they don't match perfectly in color. It's a real pain, and it ruins the look you're going for! Why does this happen? The color of each bulb is determined by the yellow stuff in the little bubble in the glass tube on the bulb. This stuff is a chemical mixture of halide salts. The composition of these salts much be mixed perfectly and deposited in precisely the same amounts to ensure a pair of bulbs matches. Cheap manufacturers skimp on this, because it's also an expensive material.

CNLight does it right, and their bulbs will always match perfectly. If you buy another pair of the same color a few months down the road, those will match too! We confirm exact color output by testing our bulbs in-house with the required scientific equipment. Any reputable supplier should have the necessary equipment to conduct this type of quality control, to ensure perfect color uniformity.

What if you get them, try them out, and don't like the color? We offer exchanges with no fees. Just let us know, and we can swap them out. That's our satisfaction guarantee.

Warranty: Do not be fooled by overrated "lifetime" warranties from other manufacturers and distributors. HID bulbs, under normal use, will last about 2500 hours, or 3 years, if used about 2 hours a day. We provide a three-year warranty to back them up for this entire period. Also, keep in mind that the warranty is only as good as what the company actually replaces. Our warranty is through Diode Dynamics, LLC, so you can be assured that you will get fast and friendly service should you have any problems. We have been in business for over 8 years, and we'll still be here for years down the road.

Shipment: We carry our own inventory, so no waiting for them to be shipped from overseas, or waiting on generic, unreliable suppliers to ship them. They ship right from our own inventory, in St. Louis, Missouri, usually the same day you order.

Your order comes with:

*-One pair HID bulbs in your choice of bulb size and color
*-Three-year limited warranty on all components
*-Diode Dynamics 30-day satisfaction guarantee

Hello there. This might be a stupid question, but bare with me please. So these HID bulbs are a direct replacement with the stock HID bulbs? So no other installation required except fo swapping them out? I love my stock HID bulbs but I would like to have the white bluish tint (6500k). I believe our stock ones are 4000k...btw I have a 2014 wrx. :) thanks and Good bless!

As long as you have a 2014 WRX Limited they should have some proper bulbs that work correctly. Just keep in mind that you'll be getting slightly less light out of that temp than the OEM temp bulbs. If you don't have a WRX Limited, then you cannot run them.

4300K is the OEM HID color temperature

5000K is a pure white, with no hint of color. (My personal favorite)

We are in the process of updating the site's listings to include the newest model year fitment, but the 2015+ WRX/STIs use the same bulb models.

If you have any questions about which models to select, please contact us. We are here to help!

Thanks,
Nick C.

We recently released a video explaining the differences between lumens, lux, and candela and which of the 3 determine the true output of an automotive LED bulb or lamp. Check it out above!

Also, don't forget to PM us for free standard-economy USPS shipping!
