    headlights

    hi i have an 02 wrx that has a xenon kit installed from the previous owner,but the ballasts messed up and now have a new hid kit to fit it all but my problem is that the bulbs on the new hid kit arent the same and are smaller.So i was wondering if theres something i can install in the headlight assembly to accept the smaller bulbs cause i have a different headlight kit from someplace named VALEO

    I have the same headlights - if that is your car in the pic.

    Those are morettes - and they are probably one of the most sought after headlights out there for a WRX.

    You need to get an H7 Xenon kit. Those are the bulbs that are in the Morettes as your normal headlights. I don't know what the bulbs are for the brights, haven't had to replace them yet.

    The light spread on the morettes is pretty damned good, I'm not sure but a Xenon kit might actually be "too much".
