    Xenon STi Headlight Swap?

    I'm going to be getting a new WRX in the next month or two. One thing that cheeses me off is that Xenon headlights aren't offered on the WRX, only the STi. Anyone tried doing a swap with the STi headlights? I assume they'd fit out of the box.

    The wiring is most likely not plug and play due to STis and WRXs having different harnesses.

    I was actually wondering the same thing. I was looking at LightWerkz.net but there is a huge waiting list. I was just kind of wondering if you could swap the whole housing.

    I was looking these guys too. Don't know anything about them. Does anyone else? I heard there was a pretty hefty waiting list at LightWerks.

    it's a few weeks. But they're good about letting you know when to send them, and getting a good turn around.

    I've only heard the best from them. I have yet to hear an unhappy customer. Check NASIOC.

    Crucial Racing sells HID kits and from what I read the install does not seem too hard at all (complete plug and play, just make sure to wear gloves when touching the bulbs).

    Don't buy one of those. They will still have glare, hot and cold spots, and piss you and other drivers off.

    It's less noticeable on 06/07's, but still... the only way to go in my opinion is lightwerkz.
