i soon will have a set of INPRO ST170's for sale. not yet though. they were on the car for about 3k miles. they are practically brand new. i have already re-sealed them due to condensation. they perform great now!

the down side to mine is that they have a hole in the backplate where the HID harness is at. you can have the HID kid that is currently installed.

the InPro version has black housings too.

if your interested, ill save them for ya. im sure you know how muh they go for new. PM me an offer and ill give you dibs.

^^^i read that the ST's may handle HIDs better than US housings but there was no clear answer. so i decided to try it out for myself. they do handle it a bit better. there is still glare but nearly as much. there is still an actual beam cutoff. its ok, but not great. i now find myself getting rid of them and putting projectors back in the car.

yeah i have always preached about hids in projectors here and after getting the ST's without having the awesome light ouput, i became hypocritical. it sux. it happens to everyone. but again, im going back to projectors.

^^I almost did the same when I had My ST170s. I ended up using My HIDs for the highs. Still, after having projectors, I desperately missed the HID output



To the OP, I recommend buying them from Scrammer, but if You don't, I would recommend www.european-parts.net You won't end up with the HIDs, and shipping can be a little slow(parts are coming from Germany, IIRC), but if You are looking to have new ones, E-P. net is a winner, from My experience.

i got them from european-parts.net. the time it takes for them to get to the house really sux ass. its normally 3 weeks or so before i get any of my shipments.

this is good news for the OP, it will be to his house in less than 1 week

Exactly why I recommended You first, bud. I just wanted Him to have the option for new ones, as per the OP's desire.

You are right on the shipping, I thing Mine took almost 6 weeks, but I had ordered during the Holidays last year, apparently the day after They took 3 weeks off. But it was worth the wait, IMO

I might have a set for sale. How much would you be willing to pay?

They are brand new for the most part. Probably on the car a total of 500 miles. I bought the car a year ago or more and they were new on there and I never drove it cause of all the problems it had so they are virtually brand new. No scratches no broken tabs nothing. Here's pics of the pass side
