Sorry about a simple question, but after searching the internet and forums, all i have found is scrambled mumbo jumbo and no definite response to my question.
- 2017 WRX Base -
Im trying to replace my dull amber halogen headlights into something white, and ill be doing the Boomerang, Low beam, and Hi-Beam.
Im trying to find one that i can plug the headlight into the socket with little to no modification.
I was reading that LEDs and HIDs need a different retrofit housing to install so that the light doesn't go everywhere.
I also saw that subispeed had LEDs that were plug and play into the original headlight bulb (Not sure i trust them)
My question is, can I switch to LEDs without changing the factory harness or anything inside the headlight? Are they just plug and play?
Do HIDs need a different headlight retrofitted or can i just plug in an HID bulb with a ballast and it works?
Same thing with LEDs : Can i just plug them in and put them in the stock housing Without having to shave, cut, or modify the existing mount.
Im looking to go the cheap way, get some Sylvania LEDs (I prefer LED over HID) but what else do i need besides the bulb?
If i buy an LED bulb, how do i get it into the wiring harness if the connectors are different?
Im trying to stay under $200-300 for the front lights LED upgrade, and then purchasing LED taillights already smoked and installed
Thanks for all your help!
