You can always just paint them and do a HID retrofit at the same time if your wrx didn't come with stock HIDs.

Definitely a great option!

bake, paint, allow to cure.. re-assemble.. bake again.. final tighten of screws...

done.. there's your black headlight inserts ;) Seriously, it IS that easy. However, make sure you do actually let them cure over night before re-assembly. I didn't and my lenses got a slight bit hazy. I have to bake mine apart again to clean up the haze from the paint off-gassing in the sealed headlight assy.

Other than that, there aren't any pit falls.. 200* for 12 min is all it takes for some tasty headlight disassembly.. then repeat for re-assembly after the painted parts are ready to go back in.
