Default Any 00-04 Legacy L owners want to convert to GT headlights?

I was going to do the swap but sold my BE before I got the chance. I have a parts kit (all relays, plugs, sockets, fuses, etc.) from Daniel Stern (of danielsternlighting.com), a Driver's side GT headlight assembly, as well as upgraded Low beam H1 Ultra High Efficacy bulbs (also from Mr. Stern).

You'll need a passenger side GT headlight assembly, wiring for the parts kit to complete the wiring harness, and your own time to put everything together.

I have a pretty long email string between myself and Mr. Stern that I'll forward to anyone interested. There's a lot of detailed information that he provides on the kit and the swap itself, you'd need to work with him on any questions beyond what's in the email. Please keep in mind that this isn't an everyday swap, so you'll need to put forth a little effort between reading the email and looking at the wiring diagrams on his site - this isn't plug & play but should make a pretty dramatic difference in light output and looks.

The parts kit was $59 and the headlight was $70 on eBay. I'd let it all go for $100 & shipping. Anyone interested? If not the headlight goes back to eBay and I check back with Mr. Stern to see about returning the kit for lighting upgrades for my FXT. Just figured I'd ask here first.

I must be out of the loop, because I never realized the L and the GT had different headlights?!? I guess my outback has the gt style?

Yup, L uses a single bulb, GT uses 2. Pretty sure the Outback uses the GT setup.

It's on SLi, Subyguy255 or something like that is the author.

It's a recent thread.

So is this something anyone would be interested in taking off my hands or do you think I should just eBay the light and return the parts kit? :dunno:
