Question Good dual beam hid kit

Looking for a dual beam hid kit for my 03 wrx (9007).


What are some good packages and where can i buy?




Not looking to spend to much. Realize that is not going to be perfect but anything to change the stock.


thanks,
For the input

they suck. bad.

we all know how bad the placement of a HID bulb is in a halogen reflector, but nobody realizes how much worse the second bulb is on dual bulb kits.

the manufacturers just slap on a ****ty halogen bulb to the base of the bulb assembly with no regard for light output. the bulb filament is nowhere near the specified focal point of the reflector.

if you are going to get an HID kit against everyones negative opinion of them, at least forget the dual bulb. they are pointless. they dont light up like normal highbeams, and are considered useless.

the wiring is a pain too.

Aren't the dual beam kits made of ONE hid bulb with a little tilt/position actuator?

no, youre thinking of bi-xenon projectors.

dual beam HID kits are set up using an HID and halogen bulb on the same base.

a bixenon projector uses one HID bulb and a solenoid operated sheild to produce the different hi/low beams
