WRX all the way. This is my 2012 that I picked up 7 months ago. My brother had a 2012 Mazda 3 that he just traded in for a WRX because he loved mine so much more.

Did you get the HIDs and LEDs from DDM tuning? If not, where did you get them from? I heard the 55w HIDs can melt the plastic in your headlights because they get so hot.

You're going to run into that issue with any aftermarket kits that uses ballasts. I personally do not trust them and would pay for an OEM part.
I have seen too many horror stories related to aftermarket ballasts.
