That's why I'm ordering H1s. You can modify your stock housing to fit the H1s.

I'll update the first post with info that I posted on www.akdsm.com.

Is this an Alaskan I-club exclusive? I would definitely be interested in this (and quite possibly a few friends of mine, three basically for sure), but I'm (we're) down in California.

WRXnFX1974 -- if you would, shoot me an e-mail at JSiwek@scu.edu and tell me weather or not we can join in on your group buy. Thanks!

Alaskan's get screwed on shipping. I'm trying to keep this in Alaska and shipping to one address for local pick up. We'll see how participation goes and decide from there.

I just saw a set of JDM headlights go for $745 on eBay. Try the classifieds on this website, too.

Actually the glare you dont see they are hotspots and Its unlikely you will see them driving unless you pull into housing and start lighting up windows

If you have h4 bulbs please get shields I dont know scubbies so I dont know if they are dual filament h4 bulbs but if they are please get Shields

The WRX uses dual filament bulbs 9007(HB5), I think that's the right numbers, and H3s for the fogs. By the way, you will lose your high beams with the stock housing.

These lights will work with any aftermarket light that accepts these bulb types:

H1, H3, H4, H7, 9004, 9005, 9006 and 9007

This is a complete kit with bulbs and ignitor ballasts.

Believe the Morettes use the H7 for the low beam projector lens, and the H1 for open high beam reflector. The H7 is a common size in Europe, but not found much in the US.

I dont think they are interchangeable cause the h1 bulb is different than the h7 in size and locking pin.

Plus keep it where it should it was meant for the low beam so chances are the design is different cause the bulb is bigger.

Oh I knew you knew they were different but just stating they wouldnt work cause the locking pin is different most likely

Glad I helped cause I thought it was a bunch of rubbish from how I worded it
