Default Building STI HID's

So some kid cut me off the other week and cracked my headlight. I want to upgrade to HID's but can't swing that $600 price tag. I found someone with a set of STI HID housings for $185 shipped. No ballasts, no bulbs.

I looked on ebay and found a set of ballasts for $150. They say they are OEM but with Ebay I can never 100% trust anything. OEM?


As for bulbs, I keep finding "OEM Compatible". I don't want to go with some aftermarket cheap-o bulbs, if anyone can show me where to get OEM bulbs for a good solid cheap price, that would be great!

2002 wrx....its tsxy


theretrofitsource......they have OEM parts for cheap, and very good quality alternatives. The prices are good too. Bulbs/capsules are pretty much interchangeable, just make sure you don't get one's above 5600k, 4300k ideally. Ballasts are kinda the same, just stay in the 35 watt category. Me, I have 35w 4300k morimoto capsules and gen 4 matsu****a (nastysocks retarded sweat filter edits...so respell matsu-sheet-a) ballasts from TRS. Mail them...they'll take care of you properly
