I bought a base model forester a few months ago and now I am interested in upgrading the factory headlights to hid xenon ones. Does anyone have any budget recommendations for xenon headlights that are both reliable and affordable? Thanks!

Budget, Reliable, Affordable, and work well are not in the same area, Pick two? I would suggest a Subaru forum probably for your best answers. I doubt your going to get much of a response here.

Don't put hid bulbs in a halogen housing, they aren't designed for it. They will appear brighter but they won't actually give you better visibility. Plus it sucks for other drivers to be blinded by idiots with a hid kit. Don't be an idiot.

You have 2 options.

1. Upgrade to JDM or EDM HID headlights and if necessary swap the screens so they work for RHD instead of LHD.
2. Retrofit your current headlights. This will probably be the best option for you. TRS sells quality products. I don't think they have a specific kit for the Forester, but if you contact them the Impreza kit might be a direct bolt on.
