Question Bugeye h/light upgrade problems

I have recently got myself a 51 plate bugeye WRX, and a few days after i'd bought it i noticed that some of the lenses on the H/light conversion have gone misty and so must be wrecked, which isn't really a huge issue (well so i thought) but i can't seem to find any traces of headlight conversions online, apart from the odd person who is selling the whole conversion again on e bay.

Has anyone else had this problem and where should i look?? (sorry for not being specific on what my lights are called, i can't find any trace of them, i guess i'm asking the wrong things?) there are three seperate smaller lights, two at the bottom, one at the top.

Also, when i first got the car i did a full service includng pads, and on all four calipers one of the pistons seemed very reluctant to move, is this normal or do i need to strip my calipers down??

Sorry if they're bone questions, any help will be greatly appreciated. cheers

Was going to say sounds like you have the morrette conversion,but as its 1 light on top and 2 below,sounds more like the one from the UK300

Hey mate, yeah, that's almost it, i think those lenses would fit, mine looks like that but has the top light situated a bit further out, still, it might just do the trick. thanks v much!
