NOTE: Recommendations are based on OE bulb used, not high vs low or WRX vs STI model (e.g., if your car uses 9005 bulbs, it will be the same recommendation of HIR mod, high/low beam or WRX/STI). This thread may not always be up-to-date on what models use what bulb, so before blindly purchasing upgrades, verify the bulb information listed is correct. If the information is not correct, create a new thread in this section outlining the OE bulb size used, and request advice. If I find the information to be outdated, I will reply to your thread, and include an update in here.
