Default Swap '07 sti hid parts into '07 wrx headlights?

Do the wrx headlights have the same housings as the sti's just without hid stuff?

My sti headlights are trashed and I don't feel like spending $700+/ea for new oem ones if I can buy new oem wrx bare headlights for $230/ea and just swap my sti stuff into them.

I know the wrx has halogen lenses and I'll need to swap my hid lenses in but is there a place to mount the ballast and levelers and all that jazz?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Everything will swap. It is a completely bolt together affair, aside from baking them in the oven.

Just to let you know the lenses of the projectors are exactly the same. The entire front half of the projector is the same. It's the rear half of the projector that is different, the reflector bowl.

Just for curiosity's sake, does this mean you only need to swap out the reflector bowl to essentially do an HID retrofit (as opposed to a complete projector swap/retro?)?

Yep. However, good luck finding just a set of STi reflector bowls. Even the entire projectors are hard to find.
