Jump onto Yahoo Auctions Japan using Google Chrome browser (auto translates). Look for BP BL headlights. Once you've found a set you like, get Jesse Streeter (search that name) to buy it for you and ship it to you.

Jump onto www.partsouq.com and enter your VIN number and you'll be able to find the part numbers you're after.

Be prepared though, HID's are $$$$$ :shock: For my 07 spec B wagon I think they were $1K+ PER side IIRC...

I recently bought second hand JDM HID's for my '05 GT from ebay for ~$500. Came in pretty top condition. Seller was Jdm.13.
Wiring was a little bit tricky. I took some notes when I fitted mine. Happy to share if you go down that path.

The JDM HID's I got came with different plugs (similar but different) to connect them to the ADM loom. Also the wiring was slightly different, I ended up taking the plugs off my ADM lights and fitting them to the JDM lights.
I've got some notes on where the wires go into the plugs at home. Will post them in a few days.

Sooooo it turns out my notes are shit haha. Sorry dude. I've had a look at the car, pretty difficult to see without removing the airbox or the battery but I can tell you this much;

JDM HID loom uses a 6 pin connector with all 6 pins used. AUDM loom uses a similar 6 pin connector with only 5 pins used. The pins for both types of connector are the same and pretty straight forward to pop out of the plug, if you look into the front of the plug, there are little tabs that you can pop up with a small flat screwdriver, pins can then be pulled out.
I've taken the JDM connector off the the new HID lights and swapped it for the connector from the AUDM lights being removed. 5 of the pins from the JDM headlight loom are placed into the same numerical positions in the AUDM connector. I've soldered (poorly) two of the wires together on the headlight side and where they go into one of the pins, unfortunately I can't see which pin they're actually going into because the airbox/coolant overflow bottle are in the way. Wires joined together are a red and a yellow.

If you can get a wiring diagram for AUDM,JDM it'll help. Hope I've been of some help to you man.
