Any recommendations for shops in the area, preferably Geico friendly? Geico has a partnership with Safelite, so I can aways go that route, but I wasn't sure if other shops can do it at a better price and quality.

Thought about DIY kits on Amazon too, but they seem sketchy. Has anyone had experience with those? Thanks.

I had my car back at the dealer for them to fix the fuel door again. The TSB didn't work but the new parts they got in (entire saucer assembly with new spring from TSB) seem to have done the trick.

Moritmoto Retroquik Kit.

I would rate the install around a 6 out of 10, 10 being the most difficult. The main difficulty I had was I didnt want to drill into anything, so I had to unscrew a 5/16" nut out that was very difficult to reach.

The other difficult part of it is getting the aiming exactly right. This might be easier for you, but I don't own a garage nor did I own the proper sized socket when aiming.

The actual baking of the lamps, mounting, and re-sealing, only took one night (around 4 hours).

Anyone with an 06-14 WRX or STI w/o bixenons wanting an upgrade, I full heartily recommend. As you can see, the projector uses both a bixenon solenoid and the stock halogens for your high beams (4 total bulbs).

Very clean. Well done

I don't know how I feel about those valves with how our drain plug is angled towards the ground.

I feel like I would snap one of those suckers right off on a speed bump.

Got any pics of how it looks mounted up?
