Very much so. May just need to reattach the the pieces unless you left the glue intact enough.

TRSAndrew, what wiring are you using to swap from your stocks to the Hellas? Pics!

Cool, back sounds easy. I have a feeling my fronts will take some more ingenuity...

I think RA sells the small, kind of s-shaped screw driver. Probably can get it at any hardware store also. Get that. It will make the rear a lot easier.

I hope it works on the Xv since that is a future project of mine. I put them in my Impreza today and love them. The stock horns sound so weak after hearing the hella.

Ya I had a small screwdriver and it wasn't as good as the s-shaped one.

Also, I noticed the fronts didn't fit perfect so I used a wing nut on the end of the screw so it pressed it up against the wheel well. Others on here have used vacuum caps. It took me a few weeks to realize the knocking noise caused by the gap.

Just ordered a hella super tone kit from amazon! Not sure why it's taken me a year to do this mod. Stock horn sucks!

It's actually double sided auto tape, I bought some 3m stuff on amazon and used that to put back on the splash guards

Ok, that makes sense. Thanks, Angelus.

Anybody know where to get the red rear fog light?

Is everything included in that price to wire it up to our cars too, or do you need to do a little more leg-work?

Here is ZURCALED's install thread;

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2487540

He lists the price of the parts that he used that did not come with the kit. Our USDM cars don't have the wiring pre installed, so it's not just plug and play...

Do any other companies make pre-cut flaps for our cars, or just RA?

Yeah, man. Just another thing we get screwed out of in the USDM. For being one of the largest markets, we hardly ever get the good stuff. Especially with this Impreza.

Seriously install them! And when you do, make sure you put the caps on the front screws otherwise the rattling will annoy you like crazy. Mine are still rattling and I've been too lazy to cap off the screws because I have to take them complete apart again before I can install agh!
