2005 GT Headlight Lens replacement

Postby Marvin » Thu Dec 07, 2017 12:20 am

About to replace my headlight lens. The jerk that owned the car before me put over rated bulbs in that made the lens plastic go brittle. So when I replaced the bulbs and put the wire spring clips on the whole back of the lens shattered.

Looking at eBay it seems there are two different shape lenses but they are both listed as JDM Subaru LIBERTY BPE BP5 BL5 STI OEM HID Head Headlights LAMP Blue Ring LEGACY and both claim to fit the 2005 GT liberty.

Below are the two pictures, the outside corner seems to be pointier on the ones on the right. See the red circles.
Any idea what's going on?
Will either really fit?

Also the description mentions "BLUE RING".
What's that all about?

If there are better places than eBay to get replacements let me know.
I'm in melbourne.

Ops the red circle on the left picture should be on the top right not the bottom right.

If it helps, I just purchased these for my Outback 3R MY04, sounds like the same item? (except maybe the blue ring whatever that is)

Great quality item. These are the JDM headlights which are HID and comes with ballast and bulbs.

No problem with fitment. Leo fitted and wired them up for me last week. Be aware there are some wiring changes required.

Thanks. I wound up ordering the pointy ones are they looked most like what I had.

Darn the prices are amazing. eBay around $300 a pair, wrecker $300 each and Subaru $860 each plus fitting.
Hopefully they arrive this week.
