Default 03 JDM WRX HID Lens Size

Anybody know what size the lens is for the projector in the JDM headlights? I am looking to pick up some clear lenses but have found mixed answers saying they are either 2.5" or 3". Just want to make sure I get the right size. Thanks.

Why don't you just measure them. If there is a half inch difference you should be able to tell from measuring on the outside of the headlamp.

I can check that out tomorrow but i am pretty sure it is 3 in. Definately much larger than the TSX which are 2.5 in.

By the way the oem sti hid bugeye lenses are already clear lenses. I cannot tell how much it would help to put a different 3" lense,but i believe the reflector bowl is what restricts the output (see my retrofit thread with pictures of the chromed surface. Also the bowl looks narrow shaped and i suspect this is why the beam is not that wide. Possibly replacing the slightly cone shaped lens with a rounder One might help with the beam width?

I guess you already addressed the rhd beam pattern issue?
