Default Companyís that sell custom headlights?

Got an 05 Sti and was looking for any companyís that can fully restore headlights? Previous owner butchered my current ones pretty bad had deep scratches. Plus he put some kind of Halo eyes in that donít work plus the seal around the lens is horrible. I may need a completely new headlight. I know new oem headlights are an absurd amount of money so thatís out of the question.

Also would WRX headlights work with my headlight harness? I know they wonít have that tilting feature but they are far cheaper than the Sti.

So if any has any recommendations or previous experience with a certain company it be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

If you don't mind some work, you can get some wrx/rs headlight and just use the lens on them but use the rest from your current unit. At the same time you can work on the halo while you have it open.

Circuit Demon does many different WRX/STI years with a bunch of options. You can either send your headlights in, or they'll source OEM spec lights

Even though these are not OEM subaru, you can buy headlights new from DEPO, and have headlights that have a warranty as well as look good. They have good results for a decent price. Unfortunately, nothing is as good as subaru unless you want to spend some big $

Hope they are still in service. We'll work on my friend's new STI project after we finish installing the suspension and brake pads from 4Wheelonline onto the Wrangler and clear the garage.

Suggest if like diy do some retrofits. Not bad to do just takes time and fine tuning at a fraction of the cost. Money towards other mods.

Anyone know if it's possible to buy just replacement lenses? My OEM headlights are factory blackouts and I'd like to keep them but the lenses are pretty shot.
