    get on lightwerkz and look at their forum. Their forum deals a lot with our headlights. Subaru headlights are easily modified, and they do a lot of work on them. The forums are free, and you can see pics without signing up for them.

    lol dude. i hope you didnt pay much for the car and had a full car fax on it. sounds like one of those commercials *cars on fire, firemen puttin the car out of its misery, as you see the typing of the words "car was just in a fire incident<backspace> NEW EVERYTHING: HOT PAINT* lol!!!

    he probably took his front brembo calipers and put some old crappy wrx ones on there. sucks for u that u didnt notice that. lol. ur engine is probably gunna go soon, along with ur turbo, tranny, any thing else that the dude probably ****ed up and put back on the car and sold for as a "NICE 06 STI FOR SALE CHEAP!!!!" LOL!!!

    Why would someone swap out STI HIDs for Impreza headlights?

    unless maybe they were smashed? I don't know...

    Yes I think the car was involved in a front end collision but nothing serious because the frame of the car does not have any signs of being repaired. The guy that had the car before me had a serious jet ski accident and spent a month in the hospital so after the injuries he decided to sell the car for 18,500 wich is a bargain here in puerto rico for a sti that has 19,000 miles. I ran a free carfax report on it and it says that there is no evidence that the odometer was rolled back. The car runs, feels and looks new. Maybe it wasnt even an accident, maybe it was that after 5 years the plastic headlights went dull or yellowish and since he wanted to sell the car for a profit he decided to put a less expensive headlight. As far as the brembos go Im having difficulties beleiving if they are good or not, I have read of a couple of people having problems with the brembo calipers on the 2004 sti and thats maybe the reason why they have so many brembo calipers on egay. The calipers that he put on front are Tokiko and are not gold but are not bad either, they brake nicely. I wonder if they are from the wrx as well lol XD thanks for your replies guys.

    Yes I did I noticed that the buzzer was missing so i went to my nearest audio store and bought a small one for 12 bucks and installed it and know it chirps when I lock or unlock but the lights dont blink. They do blink when I hit the lock button 3 times as the key fob says, maybe its because of the the wrx headlights and all the disconnected plugs that I know have at the time.
