Legacy '92 Legacy projector headlights

Does anyone know of a company making aftermarket headlights for a '92 legacy and if not how about eyelids? Been searching for a while with no luck...just wondering if you guys know of any manufacturers that make em.

Cibie or Morrette makes some I think (I dunno if they are projectors but I assume). Good luck finding them though.

They exist. Its not first gen, its 2nd gen (or 1st gen facelift). I believe they're JDM headlights, check out eBay.

Yeah, I've seen em, and really want a pair, but how would this help our friend with the 1st gen Legacy? Are you suggesting fabwork?

No, he has a 2nd gen (technically? I guess). 90-91 is the first gen, 92 had a facelift with completely different (and better) headlights and I'm sure there are JDM projector headlights availiable.

i've got an idea...how do you think 1992-1997 3 series BMW lights would work. Now i know this would require some modification to the grille, since bmw lights have more of a vertical cut on the inside and my generation legacy headlights are angled more. But it appears that the hight and overall width of the headlights are very close.

I've seen people suggest bimmer headlights before. If you'd like to, you'd have a nice unique (and very awesome) look. Try it out!
