    WTB: 2011 WRX Complete HID Conversion Headlight

    I've been searching and I cannot find anything for the +08 models, I have a 2011 WRX. I want to do a full swap like you can do for every other year WRX. I also want Halos, refrain from your opinion on these. I can't seem to find anything. I have seen the HID projectors you can install and do a retrofit however I'm looking for a compete custom Headlight. Any input? The STI assembly has been mentioned but I haven't done any research on how well these would work or how easy an install would be. I need a solution, I miss my HID head lights form my GTI, Bi-Xenon, and I need the bright output because I do a lot of night driving. This is more for function than anything else, except for the
    Halos because well I just like them but I can do without them.
    Something like this but not this haha
    HID Xenon + 06-07 Subaru Impreza WRX / STI LED DRL Projector Headlights - Black
    But I figured a visual ex. would help with what I am trying to get at.
    Thanks! Oh and keep on topic Please

    So it seems that an STI swap would be the best way to go. Agreed?

    Or buy a set of STI or WRX Limited lights from the dealer (or used from Nasioc or somewhere?)

    Or see what these guys say... https://www.facebook.com/ModGeeks
    They do services and may do HID retrofits as well (if not yet, they will be doing it soon)

    Said $550 for halos, Hi/Low, installed with 2 year warranty, includes bulbs. Good price?

    Yes, you need to retrofit HID specific projectors (like Morimotos or TSX or something) for proper dispersion of the HID light pattern. Are they doing that?

    They said they are not doing that," they have never had any problems ". Also they are taking my stock head lights. So in reality it's $550 plus my stock head lights. Seems kinda steep.

    Contact Ceaser at Lightwerks he has a bunch of options for you. I went with full OEM blubs, Ballasts, STI projectors, clear lenses, halos and OEM sealant. and spent under budget. You can easily get it done in a weekend. Sooner if you dont need to paint your housing. STI projectors are the most plug n play set up. No need on mocking up a mount for the projector since it uses the same projector mounting holes.

    You did it yourself I take it. How much did it cost you? I dunno if I am confident in taking apart my head lights, wiring everything and making it look perfect.

    Taking apart the headlights is really easy. Its definatly scarry but all you need to do is set the oven to 200 and leave for about 15min if you need more time just reheat for an extra 5min at a time. One of the guides I followed.

    The only problem with doing it myself is if I mess it up I am screwed, plus there is no warranty on the work if something happens.

    So light Werkz quoted me $1700 for a complete kit, crazyyyyy. So I decided to go with
    Retro-Quik: Subaru Impreza (06-12) - Complete Retrofit Kits
    And I am having ModGeeks do the work. So far the service has been AWESOME and RetroFit Source has been great as well. I hope it all goes well. I will let you guys know what the final price will be. It is going to consist of this kit, Blacked Out Housings, and Halos, & installation.

    I've been in contact with them since they first started coming around...yet they keep ignoring my emails.

    How about you ask them to contact Mike B back? Tell them he's been inquiring and they don't get back to me. I've asked what the next steps were after getting a quote of work to be done...and nothing.
