granted this listing is for a 08-10 sti.. but the 11/12 wrx has same body shape as the earlier GR sti's. One thing I'd do with this bar though, is make a proper bracket to mount it to the factory license plate area. RI provides the bar with two tensioners at the top and that I'm not a big fan of.

SUCH IS MANGO!
Bringing this thread back from the dead!!! Wanted to update this thread a bit. I originally installed the H9s back in November of '11 and believe it or not, I'm still rockin' those same bulbs! I used the Sylvania brand and they've been fantastic. On a sour note, I am still also rockin' the stock foglights. Oh well.
I still have my H9 bulbs from the install I did Fall of 2012, little over a year now on the H9's.
So I read through this thread and just want to confirm: The only thing I need to do with the H9's is trim the tab on the bulb itself. How about re-installing the light? Something about the tabs on the outside that hold the light in place?

And are the results that noticeable? People on Nasioc made an observation that MY11-13 were not noticing that big of a difference from MY10 and older were. But then again someone pointed out that they may have been using older halogen bulbs so when you buy new they are always going to look brighter/better.
I'm lined up for 4 H9's on amazon right now.

My '09 was noticeably better after the conversion. Highly recommended, but I'll still be moving to a full HID retrofit at some point.
