When I first got into subaru's it was the bugeye I fell in love with. The peanut eye grew on me, then the hawkeye after a year... Though it would be a good little project cause I was getting bored with the way it was looking. Hopefully getting some new pictures up soon!!!

I have aftermarket HIDs so the main beam of the headlights were a snap, just switched bulbs (be sure they are the same wattage though). I used the stock harness from my 07 to make a patch to the bugeye harness, sorry I don't have any pics...
You should be able to figure it out just by looking at how they are wired:
The one thing you will run into is the hawkeye has two running lights, one city light in the main housing and a second for side turn signal area. You may have to split the single running light from the bugeye to the two bulbs.
You can probably use the side marker wires on the bugeye to power the corner turn signal on the hawkeye.
The biggest issue will be with the high beam. The hawkeye has a split low and high beam, where it is all in one housing on the bugeye. I was able to easily swap because the harness was separate, but for the bugeye I believe the high and low beam are integrated into one circuit, so splitting it will be a pain. Check out any wiring diagrams online (not sure where) to figure this one out... The guy I swapped with didn't finish his by the time he went to work so I don't know how it came out.
Good luck tho!
