Scooby Twin Headlights with Air Intake

Hi all, My 95 Impreza has got a twin headlight conversion but I want to remove the two inner lights and replace them with cold air intakes for the cone filter.
Has anyone done this before ? Where can I get a kit to do this ?

Thanks

Dont think theres a kit to do it with,with morettes the inner lights are usually the best part of main beam so aint gonna be great on dark lanes mate of mine took one of the inners out on a saph cos (the side the filter is) then just used brake ducting from the surround to the filter.still obviously sacrificing lighting though-if ya`d got piaa spots(long range not driving lights)ya`d probably be ok-cant remember with morettes wether the inners come on on their own for main beam or the outers get brighter too-

just pondering wether say if ya took both inners out an just had the lights in the bumper come on for main beam(if they`re spots) that`d be ok, (based on if the outers dont go brighter aswell) would it pass mot?

The outer lights do get brighter when I flick main beam on but they ain't great. Currently the inner lights don't come on at all, I'm not sure if they are wired or not, maybe the bulbs have gone. Either way, I will need to replace my driving bulbs with some good after market jobbies, maybe Xenon ? I tried these before and I wasn't that impressed.
I was thinking about wiring the spots in the bumper to the main beam to give a bit more light too.
I guess I'll just have to look in a few shops and buy some ducting to route the light pods to my air filter, has to look good though.
