What are you talking about? its on sale for 49.99 for the basic set. The site you gave lists them at 29.99 each, and if you buy them from there you might as well buy the mega brights from the site i gave earlier for ten bucks more. Besides you would still need to buy resistors to slow down the blink speed.

why buy resistors when an LED flasher works with both LED and incandescent lights? it's super easy to install and it's not that hard to find.

That's what a "flasher" is basically, a resistor

I will let you figure it out yourself, I am tired of saying the same thing over and over again. The answer is in this thread.

+1 on a LED flasher. I ran one when I had my LED tails on my RS. Works great! Load resistors get hot and have the potential to melt plastic. I don't like that.

Do a bi-xenon projector retro in the low beams and then you can keep your blue LED bulbs.

I thought he meant the "2.5i" thing haha the "I" badge means Impreza, it's a JDM thing. Someone sells vinyl overlays that fit over the existing badge.

My "i" badge isn't an overall. You can buy it on a few different sites for around $15. I got mine from a forum member.

pictures of drop after the springs. coilovers are off and will probably stay off. the car rides too quiet and nice now for me to go back to the coils on the daily..









and since it was light out i took one of the wheels outside and took a picture with a good camera.

I actually bought the entire badge on ebay and replaced the subaru one. If you compare the two the "i" badge is actually a lot smaller but barely noticeable when its on the car. I tried the overlays and I just didn't like the look of it because I could tell it was a sticker ha

they're $20.99 to $29.99 depending on which ones you want. i had the $20.99 bulbs and didnt notice much difference between the more expensive ones.

Lol that reminds be of a story when I went to buy an oil filter for my ranger at a parts store...they asked me if I wanted the regular or the premium. I asked what's the difference, they said ten dollars

Either this thursday or friday I am going to attempt to paint my side mirror cards to match my spark silver body color..i've talked to a few other people about what spray can I should use and I believe I found the right color. If this works out well I plan on painting my door handles eventually too.

If anyone has some info on removing the mirror cards I would appreciate the help because I don't want to risk breaking them. If this works out well I will do a DIY write up for anyone else that is interested in the information.
