Default STI JDM HID/Non HID Projectors, glossyblack or flatblack?

STI JDM Spec HID and Non HID housings/projectors... are they glossy black inside, or flat? Semi-flat?

That's all I wanted to know, thanks! (the pictures I have seen seem to indicate GLOSSY BLACK, but I never have access to a good closeup).

There are two versions. The HID version that Imprezer has are glossy (perhaps metal) black/gunmetal inside the housing. SOJ has since changed them...

The set I bought from TaiChih are the new non-HID versions available in Japan on their new model year GDA/B's and are matte-black/plastic inside. I have no idea if the new HID-equipped projectors are still glossy or are the same as the new non-HID housings.

Thumbs up

Thank you very much Rob!

Got any pics of the "new" projectors? Are they any different than these?



I was going to seperate my lights today, and paint the inside, but want to keep a semi-factory look. Flat black would look ok, but not as nice as gloss (IMO), but didn't want to make a mistake.

The ones on the APC car above are the same 'new' JDM projectors that TaiChih sells -- the black finish is matte/flat.
