Sorry but that looks worse to me (not because of your photoshopping either). Couldn't one just get the HIDs and paint the casings and cover weatherstripping body color. I think that would help tremendously.

I don't know if you can find it with the search, but someone posted some really good "headlight conversion" Photoshopped pictures a few months ago. They looked very close to real.

Here is the post: http://www.i-club.com/ubb-files/Forum1/HTML/012481.html

I know what the driver of the car in the pic is saying to the other guy. "Remember the deal was I test drive this for you and in return I can test drive an Evo and your sister."

If somebody could make the front end look like beachbum did, I'd be happy. I might even consider getting one.

Maybe.................

Hmmmm...

Did something quickly here. I don't mind the new lights. But I figure if it's something different it might as well not borrow from the old style too much:

Greg I was thinking the same thing last night. Great job now I'd like to see someone say that's not Agressive and it still looks like a neon.

rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

i apologize for my venting, im sure u all have heard this many times, wasnt what i was setting out to do when i started the post.

For some reason, GregI's version reminds me of a Storm Trooper from Star Wars.

I like Greg's version too...anything but those silly looking round ones. There may be a silver lining to the ugly lights- if the stock WRX looks silly, fewer people will buy it (gotta stay rare, dang it)

I like the very top one best. Except I would like the metal below the light to be turned into glass and more light instead.

someone familiar with bodywork needs to start designing and producing these headlight conversions. I'm sure there will be PLENTY of people that would like to change the looks of their brand new Turbo Impreza when it comes out here!

Man those are all horrible, no matter what you do it would still look ugly. They need a converseration like the Acura Integra where they modified the whole front lights with the Acura TL lights, it looks bad as hell man!
