How many watt's are these lights? Also will they fit behind the STI Mesh or Solid foglight covers for protection when not in use?

Seeing how the fog light holes for the 02-03 vs. 04 are completely different they would not fit in the same spot.

What is the light pattern like? If I turn these things on, is it the equivalent of turning on brights (which is to say, it would blind on-coming drivers, so use with caution)?

I would hope these are atleast twice as bright as high beams so you should only use them when no one is around. Any way we can get a shot of these in use? from inside the car looking out and outside the car looking at the beam pattern.

actually they are pretty damn bright, my headlights seem more like parking lights now. I've got a set on my car, and if you don't aim them properly then you'll get plenty of people flashing their brights at you.

the only thing I regret about it is not having enough money for the HIDS

Any chance of them fitting a 04 STI ??

If they do, you have a sale.

Seeing how the fog light holes for the 04's both WRX and STI are different then the 02/03 they won't fit. Just look at the size of the opening in the bumper for the 02/03 vs. the 04

Any chance we can get the vendor to respond to this thread

Click on the FF1000 light. that is what is used in the Prodrive kit. Also check out the Xenon lights, for comparison. Now those are bright.

did you click on the "luminator xenon's"? I think those are the Rallye 4000 motorsports. Those are crazy!

The FF1000 Xenon's are the Prodrive Xenon Driving light kit that is also offered.

As far as brightness goes, I would not be surprised that the pictured driving light (on the Hella site) is the standard 55w bulb that they come with. The Prodrive kit uses a 100w bulb, as I recall. I'm sure they would be pretty comparable to the Cibiés. I was told the wiring can handle up to a 130w bulb on the FF1000. I personally think Hella has the absolute best lighting technology in the world. Plus that bracket is sooo sexy.

I would have to buy some covers for the lights, I still wonder if the STI solid fog light covers would fit over them to protect them when I don't need them.

Vendor not posting answers about product?

Product not listed on their site?

Guess she/he really wanted to head out early for the weekend or really doesn't want to sell this item, eh?

Sorry guys. I left the office early last week to set up for HIN LA.

Ok...

HIDs are $1214.23 (none in stock at the moment).

As STiTuner mentioned, these are bright. I don't have any pics of them on, but I'll see if I can get a hold of Prodrive's car to take some pictures.

The Prodrive kit does use a 100w bulb.

Unless you're willing to cut a giant hole and fabricate a mount for the bracket, these won't work on the '04+ cars.

The lights aren't up on the site because I am taking e-mail and phone orders for these only right now. Giving NASIOC members a chance to get them before anyone else.

Again, sorry I didn't get back to this thread sooner.

Stupid NASIOC members....they want all of this *yesterday*!!!!!

Thanks for the reply!

These are essentially plug and play with the stock wiring?

I think I can handle this mod

They don't fit behind the GC fogcover.... no way no how!!! I bet the same would be true for the GD.

I don't remember prodrive having the driving lamps on their car when they were out here in florida. BUt I was too busy admiring the brake setup!!!

you have to cut and splice the stock harness after the connector. I would imagine that you could buy that pigtail at a dealer if you don't want to splice up the stock harness.

These are driving lights, not fog lights, correct? Meaning legally they should only work when your high beams are on, not lows. You're using these in situations where there are other cars on the road?

They are driving lights. Yes. So no, you wouldn't want to be driving down the road with them on.

Covers - the STi covers won't fit. Might be able to get some clears around those, or you could just 3M them.

You basically cut the stock connector off, attatch the new connector, plug everything up and off you go.
