    Subaru XV Crosstrek Replacement HID Bulbs

    These replacement OEM-size HID bulbs will upgrade your OEM bulbs, which are slightly warm in color, to a cool white, modern color. These are quality bulbs, with better performance than most other generic ones on the market. They will not flicker, and they will work every time you turn them on.

    Manufacturer: Diode Dynamics has been distributing replacement OEM HID bulbs for over six years, and we have evaluated nearly every bulb manufacturer on the market. We've seen the best, and the worst, and after testing them all, we selected CNLight, because their bulbs are always superior in performance and last longer than others on the market. Look around, and you'll see other top suppliers also providing these bulbs, although some brand them under their own name. CNLight is simply the best aftermarket HID bulb manufacturer currently on the market. Even if you don't purchase them from us, make sure you get CNLight!

    Bulb Construction: As we said, CNLight manufactures superior HID bulbs. What does that mean? All HID bulbs have basic parts: connectors, a plastic base, a device that holds the glass tube, and the glass tube, or bulb, itself. Most bulbs use plastic bases that are made up of multiple pieces and a plastic holder for the glass tube. CNLight bulbs use a one-piece base design, and a ceramic holder, which isolates heat from the base, providing much better reliability. It's more expensive to do it that way, but it's the best way to do it!

    Color: The most common issue with cheap replacement bulbs is that they don't match perfectly in color. It's a real pain, and it ruins the look you're going for! Why does this happen? The color of each bulb is determined by the yellow stuff in the little bubble in the glass tube on the bulb. This stuff is a chemical mixture of halide salts. The composition of these salts much be mixed perfectly and deposited in precisely the same amounts to ensure a pair of bulbs matches. Cheap manufacturers skimp on this, because it's also an expensive material.

    CNLight does it right, and their bulbs will always match perfectly. If you buy another pair of the same color a few months down the road, those will match too! We confirm exact color output by testing our bulbs in-house with the required scientific equipment. Any reputable supplier should have the necessary equipment to conduct this type of quality control, to ensure perfect color uniformity.

    What if you get them, try them out, and don't like the color? We offer exchanges with no fees. Just let us know, and we can swap them out. That's our satisfaction guarantee.

    Warranty: Do not be fooled by overrated "lifetime" warranties from other manufacturers and distributors. HID bulbs, under normal use, will last about 2500 hours, or 3 years, if used about 2 hours a day. We provide a three-year warranty to back them up for this entire period. Also, keep in mind that the warranty is only as good as what the company actually replaces. Our warranty is through Diode Dynamics, LLC, so you can be assured that you will get fast and friendly service should you have any problems. We have been in business for over 8 years, and we'll still be here for years down the road.

    Shipment: We carry our own inventory, so no waiting for them to be shipped from overseas, or waiting on generic, unreliable suppliers to ship them. They ship right from our own inventory, in St. Louis, Missouri, usually the same day you order.

    Your order comes with:

    *-One pair HID bulbs in your choice of bulb size and color
    *-Three-year limited warranty on all components
    *-Diode Dynamics 30-day satisfaction guarantee

    Hey Nick bought some really cheap LED strip lights to mount under my dash, Ebay $2. Like to know if you could help me what color wire is it that I tap into the door switch. So it'll operate only when I open the door. Thx

    I was not aware that ANY Crosstreks ever came with OEM HIDs. Which year/trims were these? I have a '15 Limited and halogens.

    I can't recall the exact trim level, but it is listed as an available option

    One easy way to tell is to check your bulbs, or just simply see if there are ballasts

    Can anyone else speak to this? It certainly wasn't an option in USA for 2015 on the non-hybrid...

    No USA models have any option for hid. I believe it's only available for Canada and Australia as extras.
