Did you search google or this forum? Because this has been asked a lot over the past couple years on this forum. Even threads where people show the difference in what a hid bulb will do in a stock projector lens vs a retrofitted lens that was actually made for HID bulbs. The glare difference is worlds different. Sorry...like I said. I'm not trying to be mean. If you know which path you want to take either retrofitting the stock headlights to accept HIDs or if you just want to swap out your front head light assemblies for the STI headlight assemblies. Let us know...I know there are two different websites that will retrofit your headlights. You just have to ship them your headlights. Which is why some people just buy the headlight assemblies instead.
Again...its a much better idea to not just throw in a HID kit into your stock headlights. I was naive at one point with my 06 WRX TR and did that also. But, people keep doing this and I'm starting to get annoyed at how people glare the crap out of me with their HIDs in a headlight that wasn't made for that bulb. I practically get blinded at times when people install them in their Nissian frontier. I digress...this is where the hate comes from. People that blind me with a cheap and poorly done mod. HIDs done properly are a wonderful upgrade. Which is why I'm trying to stress the right path.
