Default What kind of HID bulb???

Ok so my friend ordered a set of HID headlights for his Celica but they sent him the wrong bulbs. And he seems to think they go to a Subaru. So my question is what kind of HID bulbs does my 2002 WRX take???

...by design, your 2002 WRX doesn't take "HID bulbs", it takes halogens (9007 application). Also, placing "HID bulbs" in the USDM reflector lamp housings of the '02-'03 WRX is a really bad idea.

Remember that all to familiar thing called rice? Putting HID bulbs in a NON-HID headlight is just that. Follow this ^^ advice, and don't do it. If you can't afford the suit, don't just buy the jacket, it makes you look like a tool...
