Do you have any pics of either setup? I have yellow overlays over stock bulbs. I wonder what yellow bulbs with yellow overlays would look like.

Yeah man, I'll work on getting a few pics up! The HID low, yellow high, and amber LED fog setup looks great, but I'm going a different direction..

Just lowered my limited and upgraded my rear sway. Any thoughts one how I can get rid of my stock springs and sway. Only 4500 miles on them.

What brand did you use? I noticed both Nokya and Putco make yellows for our car. I have the Nokya yellows in my highs and they look fine, but I hear the Putcos offer a more true yellow color.. Was considering getting those ones. I've been running amber LED's in my fogs, and they look great, but going yellow halogens now instead..

No, I don't have block heater and not planning to get one.

Just out of curiosity, are those the Nokya Hyper Yellow 9009/H16 35w bulbs? If so, have u noticed any melting or issues with the stock housing? I was interested in replacing the stock psx24w bulbs and those bulbs were a easy fit (just shave off a few plastic tips), however the wattage (overheating) was my main concern.

It's Nokya Hyper Yellow H16 5202 Stage 1 Twin Pack NOK7689

Correct, 35 watts, no melting or overheating issue so far.

Installation was easy, just had to shave off few plastic tips.

The cusco one is sold for 200 or less. 180 is about the best price I have found. CUS 694 541 A is the cusco part number for the 2.0i impreza and will have to be special ordered by a cusco dealer because these are made in japan. Dont get part# CUS 692 541 A because it wont fit. I bought one and found out the hard way. Its designed just for the wrx/sti and has curve in it to fit around the intercooler. Well that curve goes to far towards the back of the engine bay and hits up against the firewall making it impossible to install.

The subaru lip adds a nice look to the car, I have it in mine. Its a little over priced but I got a deal on mine used. Its not super aggressive though like the wrx lip is.

There are unfortunately no intakes made for the 2.0i that i know of at this time. I am sure you could find a universal one that would fit. There was actually a nasioc user (whose name I dont remember) that lived in CA and brought his car to k&n research & development for a week so they could design one. Well in the end they said the sensors in the intake were to sensitive and by the time they got it so the engine would run right there were little to no power or mpg gains. Best bet is to just buy a k&n or AEM air filter for the stock air intake at $40-50.

Hope I helped answer all your questions.
the FRONT is actually 694 540 A

the REAR is 694 541 A

The 08+ WRX Perrin strut bar apparently works too.. Unsure about any rear bars or sway bars other than the Cusco and Whiteline ones..
