Keep the lights you have. They are superior to the stock WRX lights with or without the HIDs. The Prodrives are also hard to replace at this point as they are no longer being sold in the US.

I don't understand why your stock lights would appear to work better than the Prodrives, it shouldn't be that way. The H7 projectors, properly aimed, should easily outperform the OEM lights. Those "bright as hell" factory reflectors with HIDs will produce too much glare to oncoming traffic, they are not made to accomodate HIDs.

i find that hard to believe. i have had a GC, drive/ridden in a bugeye, and now own an 04...the bugeye are the least in performance, amoung the last couple of versions of the impreza. mulder is right about the glare. that "hella" bright is nothing but glare. you are better off trying to retrofit hid's in the uk's.....i installed a set of mucculoch HID's 6K in my friends rx8 and wow....that is all i have to say

I installed a set ok 4300K Hella ballasts/Philips bulbs in my Prodrive lights. It's definetly an improvement over the halogen in the Prodrives and the stockers. I don't see how these Prodrives are not working out for you. You probably can get a better deal by selling these. You'll be able to make enough $$$ to buy a better HID set(like Hella) plus a set of stockers off of this site. I see stock 02/03 lights going for $100. You then can get an HID set for $200...close to anyways. You can sell the lights for close to $700. Good luck on whatever you choose to do.
