For 2005 model you should be okay, if you can't use the OEM headlight wiring to connect to the HID ballast, connect the ballast directly to the battery with a relay, that should work.

Huh???....As far as I know the electrical system in the WR is the same from 2003 - 2009. The oem headlight runs on AC and the DC circuit that charges the battery only puts out about 2 amps. It's woefully inadequate to supply an HID light. You need at a minimum to mod the stator and add a rectifer/regulator.
