I just installed this kit today, red, to go with the red light in my 11 WRX. Snaking the wires was easy but took a bit of patience. It is tight in the dash. Removing the glove box helped. I did not remove the center console nor do I think you need to. I am happy with the results. I am also happy that they dim along with the other dash lights when you adjust the dial. The light looks cool and I kind of enjoy it while driving at night.
