I got TLs off ebay and did it myself, but its a decent amount of work and sourcing all the parts was a real hassle. I'm happy I did it myself only because I got to experiment and I ended up with TLs (people will retrofit TSXs for you but I didn't find anyone that would do TLs).

For TSXs, unless you want the experience of DIY, I would suggest just going here:

Subaru Products & Services | LightWerkz.net

I've never seen his stuff in person, but everything I've read indicates he does a good job.

To give you an idea I spent just over a grand on parts (I could have done it for ~$850 but I ended up needing an extra pair of headlight shells) when all was said and done. By my math he is charging $1080. I would say the reduced hassle, and likely better finished product, is worth the $200 or $300 premium.
