    Aftermarket headlight and fog bulb replacement

    Hello everyone ,

    I'm just going to say sorry now if this question has been asked already

    I have a 08 wrx sedan . My headlights are redone . I have bright white led halos. I would like to replace my stock bulbs for my headlights . I do not want to go the HiD route anymore . I want bright white . LEDs or halogens. Something that will brighten up the road with out Being to expensive .

    And for my fogs, I am looking for a bright yellow . I have yellow ones in there now . They are dull and does not give off a sporty look

    Any suggestions with brands would be greatly appreciated . Thanks Guys

    Osram Germany makes a couple of replacement bulbs that are very bright.
    Lifespan is shorter than standard brightness, but the level of brightness is considerably improved.
    Osram Nightbreaker
    Osram Rallye 65+

    PIAA Japan also makes a couple of bulbs that are very bright, also not as long lasting as stock, but again, powerful by comparison.
    PIAA ExtremeWhite+
    PIAA S.P.A.R.K.

    all are standard bases, using your OEM wiring configuration, no additional hardware required.
    Good luck, and pics when you get it done!

    I wanted hids. They are a bit expensive n don't last as long as I would like . I had a set and a bulb burnt out in a month . I just want a nice white prob 6k n fogs 3k for a price that is not through the roof n a decent brand

    If you're going to do HIDs, you need to do a proper retrofit with quality parts. This will ensure proper light output without blinding other drivers, as well as proper installation and wiring so they don't blow out in a month.

    That'll run you $500+, and HID isn't always better...

    I had my headlights professionally done . If I got hids I would go back to the guys who did them . I def would not try to attempt that job

    Professional install of a typical HID kit will be just as crappy as if you DIY

    Phillips Xtreme-Vision are what I would recomend for the headlights. For the fogs I actually like the Nokya or Narva Gold selective yellow. A good place to get them is here:
