looks like the same projectors I have except he retrofitted his blinker. You can find them on almost any online store.

what's different about them besides the blinker portion? I bet with some fabricating work you could make mine look like them...I don't know how good you are with that kind of stuff...

The fact that yours are total trash and those are extremely high quality? Orciari's are WRC headlight clones that were very well designed by an Italian company and used Hella 90mm low beams. Yours were designed and built by a 3 yr old Chinese boy and use optics I wouldn't put in a $2 flashlight.

I'm sorry...

And the nice thing about these headlights Subajet, is that you can install a better projector kit because they do not like to aim right with the way they come when you buy them.

The only thing that sucks about buying used is you wont actually know if your getting the real deal until its in your hands if your looking for real Morette lights be carefull because there are companies that make Morette style lights but are not near the quality the real ones are. But if your not worried about quality and just want the look then go for it.

Just my 2ct.

There is no such thing as a Morette clone.

Maybe for other cars, but not for Subarus. In 9 years I've never seen one. I've seen those el cheapo lights baumgartenb has sold as "Morette JDM style", but that's it.
