    Just my opinion, but I think chrome rims would look better on a silver car. Silver is a pretty reserved color and chrome wheels will give it some pop.

    Are you going to remove the roof rails? That would kill.
    You think i should go black with a chrome lip? or just complete chrome?

    I was thinking about the roof rail delete but i use the rails in the winter for my snowboards.

    I'm not a fan of black wheels, but that's just the photographer in me. A black tire with a black wheel doesn't have much definition. And on a silver car, you're going to have a neutral color on another neutral color. That's just my opinion, however. Maybe someone has pics of a silver WRX with black wheels? I just think an all chrome wheel would add some flash and focus to a color that hides pretty well.

    So I decided to Ground my Wrx better and wire my HID's in at the same time. It was a fun morning!
    -this is how i started out


    got of set of texon hid h1 bulbs and ballasts and relay kit. looked like it was gonna be a little tought to figure out the wiring because there was no freaking directions. but i managed.

    http://www.texonstore.com/servlet/Detail?no=106

    I also picked up a 9007 female end (from ebay) so that i did not have to splice the wires off the stock head light socket.





    there was a RED, BLACK and GREEN wire.
    The RED Wire is for the High Beam
    The GREEN wire is the shared NEGATIVE (Goes to both High and Low Beam Negative)
    The BLACK wire is for the low beam.
    Even if you didn't buy the HID kit, you should buy this harness to use for the non-hid bulbs. saves a lot of hassle.

    -Ballast Passenger Side

    See it peeking out? its the silver thing. I have it being held with heavy duty velcro.

    -Ballast Driver Side


    -Mounted the Relay There

    Little Black thing towards the top. And i grounded it where the yellow wire is. I have both relays hooked directly up to the battery. (RED WIRES ON THE POS+ SIDE)

    On the passenger side i grounded the relay here.


    -The relay had 4 wires coming out of it.
    In the Tube was a black and Red Wire that goes directly to the battery.
    Red - POS+
    Black - Neg(-)
    then there was another Black and a yellow
    Black - Neg chasis ground
    Yellow tube and black tube - Power from Headlight
    (one side was yellow the other was black)

    pretty simple. they give you enough tube to place one relay on each side of the car and then run the battery power wires to the battery.

    So when that was all said and done, i popped the headlights back it.


    I like!

    Also grounded the battery better. used the daisy chain method
    8gauge wires. grounded 2 differnt spots off the battery. (Engine and strut top)

    From Battery to Driver side Strut Top

    From Driver Side Strut Top to Passenger Side Strut Top

    From Passenger Side Strut Top to Chasis Ground


    So i was pretty happy with my day. started at 830am finished at 1130. with a trip to radio shack for more connecters. not bad.

    Nice wagon. I wish I could afford those headlights. Did you use the yellow film on your foglights? If so where did you get it?
