NA Adaptive Headlight Trade

Hey guys, I have a questions for all of you that have the clear side markers in the headlights versus the amber. I wanted to know if one was willing to trade me the clear for the amber or if someone in Europe could purchase them for me and then ship them to me. That one might be tricky, but I suppose it is do-able. Basically I want to get the Euro AHLs. Thanks,

Nick

I don't think it's much of a conversion. I think its a "one for one" swap. Can anyone else chime in to confirm that?

I remember when I had my WRX, I baked my HID headlights to open the enclosure up. Then I was able to remove the amber and seal it back up without having any problems for as long as I kept the car. I'm thinking that it might be possible to do the same with these headlights. I'm thinking I might try it when my car arrives in a week or two.

I've heard of that before too, I'm not sure I want to do that with the Adaptive Headlights though. I'm thinking that these Xenon lights are going to be a bit more sensitive than regular H8 bulbs.
