Default Lighting Question...

Simple question for all the boys and girls:

How can one tell the difference between the JDM and EDM halogen projector lamps for 2002/3 WRX? Is there a difference in the appearance? Or do they look the same with the exception that EDM is for LHD and JDM for RHD? I'm curious since i purchaced a set of EDM lights however the leveling motor is a 6 pin connector and from what I've read, the JDM is a 6 pin and EDM a 4 pin..

I found the part number for the EDM lamps however the lamp itself has no marking.

....Please help!!
Thanks!

wow i'm searching for the EXACT same thing right now. i have a 6 pin levelling motor harness but i have EDMs... they definitely have a LHD beam pattern and have never been opened or modified. I did buy them used, but can tell from the seam that they have never been taken apart. I cant find a part number on my lights either...
maybe if a mod edits the thread title to be a bit more descriptive it'll help with some responses.

you could just plug them into a 12v power sorce and see what way the light shines.

i KNOW they are EDM... i've had them on my car for quite some time. i'm in the middle of installing a headlight levelling switch in the 6-pin harness... which doesnt make sense.
the EDMs should have a 4-pin harness, and the JDMs should have a 6-pin harness. i'm just wondering what gives here...
i cant find a part number on the light itself... does anyone know where to look or can anyone explain the EDM light with 6-pin levelling harness thing ot me?

yea, i know you know, but i was reponding to the orginal poster

So, you are saying, that your edms have a 6pin motor? if so, get the 6pin switch and be done with it.

oh ok it seems that the original poster and myself are in teh exact same position, in that we know the beam pattern indicates LHD and that is how they were described, but they have the 6-pin wiring harness. i bought a 6 pin levelling switch and am in the middle of installing it right now. i'll post back confirming that it works fine when i'm finished.
