Headlight Self Install...

Went to a local shop and asked about getting these installed. It is the morrette kit with plug and play harness. They told me it would take 4 hours and be over $200. They also claimed the bumber would have to be taken off and everything. Here is the result after only 1 hour 10min. of doing it myself. I also did the grill. What do you think? I think I did a pretty good job.

Here is the link to where I got them. Best price I could find. They even painted them factory color to match before shipping. Just open the box and pop them in!

MASTRO!!!!

that's where i bought my wrx. i've looked, and their MRT prices are usually the same or cheaper than the MRT site. plus they don't void your warranty when you have them do performance mods. the morettes look sweet, too bad the JDM (more expensive) headlights look better on silver.

Speed limits don't apply to AWD.

looking good, I love the BS the retailer told you on how they would have to take off the front bumper and it would take 4hrs. !Laugh! It took me 30 min to do mine.....

Its fairly simple if your mechanically inclined. Find all the bolts that secure the stock intercooler, and remove them, you will also need to loosen the hose clamps in between your intercooler and throttle body as well as the exit hose clamps coming from your turbo, and thats it. (easier said than done)

somebody please correct me if I wrong

**BTW you should have posted this in the performance forum**
