Default 2002 WRX Sidemarkers (white)

I recently received the 2002 WRX white sidemarkers through
a buy from vsigma. The sidemarkers cost $90, which was a fair
price, considering vsigma took the time to dremel out a hole for
the light bulb to fit into (they don't come like that from the
manufacturer).

I believe these are OEM Australian/Japanese parts. I have a black
WRX, but think that they look great. Decide for yourself - they are
in an album at:
http://www.cartogra.com/home/viewown...&owner=andrewe

They installed fairly easily, although I did scratch the paint
behind the sidemarkers by trying to get them off. No big deal,
since I plan on keeping them on there and they cover the
scratches.

I think they give the car a 'cleaner' look and are a cool 'dress up' mod. I dunno, maybe I'm crazy.

Yeah, they look nice
I bought mine from Teagues Auto.com and they install pretty easily, i put cloth around my srew driver when i pryed the stock housing up and that reduces risk of scratches. i had to make the holes myslef though(the lights came from japan i guess because they had Jap. instructions with them.) cost-$100+$10shipping

Thumbs up Thanks Victor!

Got in on the same GB as Andy did and received my modified white sidemarkers from Victor (vsigma). They arrived in good order. Changing out the OEM's were a snap. Didn't even require a screwdriver. Used my fingers and popped them both out without indicent. Not scratches or anything.

To remain legal, dropped by my local auto parts store (Kragen's) and picked up a pair of orange bulbs (#194NA Sylvania's) for about $4 and popped them right in. They look great. White in the light and orange at night. No fuss no muss.

Thanks Victor!

Thanks Topcover. I just won a set on E-bay and should receive them in a couple days. You don't need a screwdriver. Its a little difficult but push the sidemarker up (slightly towards the back of the car) and out and they should just pop out. I found that by using latex gloves or a small piece of rubber it was easier to get them out and you don't have to worry about scratching the paint.

It should take no more than 10 minutes.

10 minutes? What are you all thumbs? j/k

Glad I was able to provide help. I was glad that you pull it out without screwdrivers. I always get creeped out dealing with metal against my car. Going orange or keeping the white bulbs?

Glad it worked out!

I'll probably keep them white for now. Too lazy to run to Kragen's or whatever they're calling themselves now. We'll see if/when the first fix-it ticket comes.

Of course, I'm also running without a front license plate. I've done so for years (knock on wood) on my Porsche without getting a ticket (also have European tail lights on it which are illegal).
