    HID kit for 2015 WRX

    Hi guys,

    I am new here. I just bought my first WRX. It's a 2015 wrx base model in white. I wanted to get some hid kit for her. Could you guys please help me find the right kit. I know the stock bulbs are H11 55w. Do I need a relay harness for the kit? Are there any sellers here who sells good quality kits?
    Any tips to where to look at and which kit to get. Max budget is $150 including the harness.
    Thanks guys.

    You need to do a proper retrofit with projector housings/lenses designed for HID bulb. Your stock halogen projectors are designed for halogen bulbs, and should be be used with HID bulbs with replacing the entire projector assembly.

    Thank you for the quick reply. I was afraid of that. I did my own retros for my Si with dual Mini H1 projectors. They were nice. Might have to wait till someone posts a DIY.

    I asked the sales guy and he said to get some plug n play ones and it should be ok. What if I got the 35w kit? Will it damage the stock projectors? Too lazy to do the whole retro thing right now.

    Respectfully (ok, not really), your sales guy is an idiot...read the first link in the thread Isaac posted, and understand why that's a poor idea.

    I don't know what bulbs come standard in the 2015, but I'll update that thread when I get that information.
