Interestingly the foreign market cars with OEM HIDs don't have side reflectors.

I do find it strange that it still uses the 9005 bulb for highs, since the D2r's probably have over a thousand more lumens... I guess the cutoff actually cuts off the lumen output?
Highs are angled up higher to improve distance vision, but they also add some light close in, if they were too bright your eyes would focus close in to the car and negate the whole purpose of the high beams

Dirty Impreza Sport in vacation mode. I snapped some pics while on vacation, waiting to head home. I knew the BBS wheels were coming off as soon as we got home. Wife hated them.

I think so to, but its not my car. I kept them on for our trip up north. Her stock wheels have summers on them. They are 17x8, 5x114 (adapters) with 225/45 DWS tires. I sold them yesterday.

Did '11 WRX Wheels in November of '12. Did Quad Exhaust in the Spring of '13. Put on Side Skirts last fall. Now I'm going for some Crosstrek Hybrid Taillights... to surely continue the trend of confusing folks. "What car is that?"



Pricing information, photos, and details about this swap are all on my blog> '12+ Impreza LED Taillights

If you smoked those tails they'd be even more confused with the LED's peeking through. haha

Default Aero mudguard installation

Hey,

Soon to be first time subaru owner! awaiting for my 2014 impreza sport to come in in a week or so from today. after looking at all the pictures in this forum, I'm really feeling the aero mudguard look. Wanted to know how the installation of those are. Is it as simple as a couple of screws or do we need to drill holes?

Any tips appreciated! Thanks!
