Default My 2013 2.0i modded wagon thread

I, like most of u can't leave our cars alone. I always got to do something to them, either oem accessories, aftermarket or diy. I just thought I would add another thread of a project always in progress.

First was debadging: I took off "Subaru" & "Impreza" and may take off "symmetrical" & "partial zero emission vehicle". Haven't fully decided.

2nd: Piaa extreme white low beams and Piaa plasma high beams.

Ordered but waiting for release or another company: H&R springs

Have but waiting for springs: universal RA mud flaps

Ordered and waiting for delivery: customled rear led reflectors and JDM mesh grille from HK (eBay)

Will post pics once I read how to do it on this forum.

yea, so far i only have an aftermarket roof rack system, rally armor mudflaps, and a set of 2011 WRX wheels.

planning on installing short shifter and bushings this weekend (Perrin).

in the near future -- getting the 19mm RSB, front strut tower brace, H&R sport springs and a light bar.

can't wait to see how yours turn out.

Looking forward to seeing how the suspension mods go, as well as the light bar!

I'll keep you guys posted. I got an email from the Rally Innovations people about a light bar and they said they're planning on releasing one end of April / beginning of May.

We'll just have to wait and see.

The one I see on ebay is $99, then $34 shipping. And it's not painted, and you may have to drill mounting holes. I don't know how much painting costs, but the OEM might be that much less effort.

I offered them $80 + shipping so I got it for $20 less than what the auc was for. I may leave it black like the lower grille and my car is dark gray so it wont be too bad.

Today I received the led rear reflectors from customled.
I'm gonna do turn signals.
I'm pretty good with hooking up extra blinkers but just have a couple quick questions:

It looks like just 2 spring like clips holding on each reflector, am I right?

How do I route the wires up to the taillights?

where did you get the led reflectors?? i googled customled but couldnt find the ones for our car...do you send in the reflector and they add LEDs to it?

please send me a link. thank you! how much did it run you?

also, does it flash when you tap the brakes (meaning it stays on constant like parking light and then lights up brighter when you press the brakes)?

I installed the lights yesterday. The wires on their instructions are backwards to our cars. I followed their colors of the wires and it made them parking lights and I wanted brake lights. They only turn on with the brake pedal cuz there are only two wires (pos & neg). $82 with shipping. Funny thing is they are oem reflectors with a led strip added. I maybe could have done it myself but may have broken them in the process. I love them.

Is this the jdm grill you were referring to? Isn't this the same as the optional sport grill ?

No that one is probably just the OEM one just classified as "JDM". Mine is a generic grille. Basically a shell with mesh grille. It has no holes and no emblem.

That car on eBay is not mine and I dont know who said that, I didn't see anything about anyone saying that.
I didn't install mine yet. I haven't decided if I'm gonna paint it or leave it black. I guess I will figure it out when it comes time to install it.
