I would get any of those things. They are cheap and dangerous. I ordererd a set, and they light had fallen out of the socket during shipping, and they were very well packed. Plus they are not sealed (ie. water can get to the bulbs), plus the harness sucks, plus it is cheap brittle plastic, etc.

Save your money and get morrettes if you need a dual headlight.

get the morettes! those other ones are crap!! they suck for lighting, are build crappy, and some one i know had both bulbs burn out with in the same day. the insides are the driving and the outsides are the highs.
did i mention THEY SUCK and in my opinion they look bad and make your car look cheap. Go for the real thing unless your going for that "i wanna be like the guys in Fast and Furious" look. I know a place you can get a tare design decal for your car and o ya, might as well shop the IMPORT isle at Pep-boys and get that new light up exhaust tip w00w00.

please dont make our cars cheap, buy the real thing and DAM the APC for making things for subarus!

Morette quality control isn't fantastic either. There are a lot of odd gaps that need to be corrected. Mine have the clips for the grille too low so there's a gap between the grille and the hood. This can all be fixed with some filler and a dremel, but the old Morettes are by no means a high quality fit and finish. They are made of a nicely flexible plastic and hold fantastic lamps, however.

granted you do have a nice car, and i like to think so do i....as for the whole morettes vs POS's...i dont really care.....i was asking where i could find cheap replicas, as in will be used for a small project ./.....i am not gonna pay for morettes just so i could screw them up....plus i am a great deal happy with the stock lighting....as well as my auxillary lighting

This guy right HERE has them. Don't know if they're cheaper than what you've seen, but he has them. Good guy to deal with as well. I know him personally.

AJ

PS: Nice front end.
