Yeah, they weren't referenced in mine either. In fact, I was about to run out and get some to kill the rattle when I noticed them in the package.

Question for anyone with an AFTERMARKET roof rack..

I installed the Yakima Railgrab kit to my Sport.

Does anyone happen to know if the attachments for the Thule fairing would fit onto the Yakima round bars? I like the Thule fairing cosmetically way more than the Yakima one.

It's made to fit both round and sq bars. I had to ground a little off the clamp on pass side car for my Thule fairing to fit around my Malone yak rac clamp. But it was an easy install. The Thule fairing is pretty sweet IMO. I liked it the best.

If you want a legacy or outback go buy one now. Indiana plant got hit by possible tornado last night. It's pretty bad here. Called off production for 1st and 2nd shift today. I was happy for another day if hunting but hope to get paid soon.

That sucks, glad you ended up with another day of hunting though. I'm just going both weekends since work is crazy right now. Hope they can get production up and running quickly tho, being off unexpectedly throws a wrench in a guys plans for sure.

The bulbs are plug and play. I just had to trim a tab on each of the bulbs to fit them properly. Had mine in the car since Feb.

DRL = 9005 bulb. remember this is also your high beam, so you will lose the ability to throw light down the road.

FOGS = H16/2504 bulb. Same issue with light throwing.

If you don't use those lights for their function and just want the look, go for it!

Oh, and while we're on the topic of leds, anybody got some cash burning a hole in their pocket and want to guinea pig these?

I don't understand why anyone would willingly lose their high-beam functionality. I mean, even if you don't need high beams often, everybody needs them from time to time. If I'm driving down an unlit country road with no oncoming traffic (especially during deer hunting season), I love using my high beams.

But I'm a function-over-form kind of guy, so that's the way I roll. It's one thing to install a big, useless wing on the back of your 4-door STi--it doesn't add any functionality, but it doesn't take any functionality away, either.

But to remove the ability to throw high-beam light, well, that just seems silly and potentially dangerous to me.

Misread his post. I thought it was a regular headlight. I want lights that are higher lumens tand have better coverage than the OEM halogens but without needing a HID kit.

I feel ya, I'm the same way. That's why I plan on getting the HIR's for my high beams.

Funinc, those led h11's I posted a link to supposedly put out 2k lumens, and they are the low beams for our cars. Maybe you could try them out. I would gamble on them if I had the extra funds but I don't... :-(

DRL LED's here:

FOG LIGHT LED's here:

http://www.lightbulbs4cars.com/product/NOK9789



Everything is pricy but I assure you the 1600 lumen DRL LED kit is near high beam brightness. It's the one of the first kits of it's kind and is the best DRL replacement besides halogen bulbs in my opinion.

Good looking, Andrei. Those ijdmtoy's look similar to the vled's. 1600 lumens would be great for the low beams. Do they have fans?

The HIR's put out 2300 lumens for fifty bucks, so I'll stick with getting those for my highs.

And I like the fogs too. Man, I can feel my bank account shrinking...
