Hello all, although I have been a member for a couple weeks and posting comments and whatnot, I just stumbled across this, so I figured I might as well post something. Well, I am new to Subaru, and in love with Subaru already, and new to modding my car. I have a dark grey 5 door Impreza with a 20% window tint. I would of liked to get the WRX, but my insurance would of been more than I could handle at the moment. I have already recieved great help from everyone one here about what I should do to my car. One thing, I want to get different light bulbs for the headlights. Any recomendations?

for the low beam are you looking for a HID kit or just changing the OEM bulb for better, nicer, stronger one ?
for the high there is no need to get HID, and even if the colors is not so legal its ok since you usualy turn them on just when there is nobody on the road
another nice touch to have is to get LED bulb for the license plate, make it look like a lexus rear end :)
there is a list of which bulb number you need in the Styling board

Yeah I guess the HIDs. I just want a brighter light. and yeah the led bulb would be a nice touch ;D
here what the license plate LED look like on my car



For the HID kit, keep in mind that the Higher Kelvin you get, the less light output (lumen) you will get and the more blue/purple they will be

OEM HID on lexus, benz etc. are 4300K... if you want a bit bluer 5000 will be a fine compromise... and IMO 6000K is the acceptable limit
over that (8000k, 10 000k, 12 000k) you will get a nice look but you will really have bad light output
