Default *** BRZ fog lights same as IMpreza/xv****

Hey guys i just got off the phone with Subaru dealership

The IMpreza, XV, BRZ and outback all share the same part # for the fog light assy.

It's 84501b

So LED or even this, what i'm getting, will fit

Good to know although think projector fogs are overkill. Im sure there are people out there who think all projector lighting is overkill.

Still... post a picture or two when you get them installed.

The BRZ and Impreza foglights are plastic, I like a lot of people on here upgraded to 2010 or so Outback foglights which are glass and use a better bulb.
I think the projector light is nice and if I didn't already do it I would get those. Would look good with projector headlights too.
I got my foglights from Rock Auto for $30 each.

Agreed. This is really for aftermarket interest. I order mine going to put hids.

Yes they do. They look exactly the same except they are glass and H11 bulbs. U will need to get adapter plugs.
The 2010 Outback lights were actually marked dual purpose lights and supposedly fit the 07 Sentra SeR

Would these (select BRZ in drop down menu) fit in my 2012 Impreza 2.0i then? http://www.subispeed.com/2015-subaru...l#.U5ixgWlq0uo

Interesting about those fogs, around the same price as the outback ones, right?

Received the fogs a few days ago and had a chance to install everything today.

The housing is pretty decent quality. It fits well into the fog bracket, not much of a gap when the cover is placed. The bulbs are h3. Ill be changing these with a Narva range power +50 in a few days. I upgraded the wire harness from the one provided with a thicker gauge wire. The power inverter for the ccfl seems like your typical inverter. I dont know how long it'll last as Ive always seen them burn out. The ccfl gives a nice white glow. I tapped the power for the halo ring to my parking lights. I had to solder a wire to extend it so it would be able to reach. I also applied a clear lamin-x to the front to protect the lens. The projector def throws light better, but the h3 bulb they provide isnt the best. I will try and get some night shots soon. The phone camera just doesnt like to pick up the lights properly.

Nice, glad to see they turned out good! They'd look great with a projector retrofit.

Waiting for more pics!!

Was able to get the DSLR out tonight and grabbed a few more pics.
Unfortunately the narva range power bulbs I wanted from candlepower were out of stock so Ill have to wait to swap those bulbs out. Still decent output from the projectors.

I'm liking them! Hmm, I wonder if they would look good with the chrome bezels...

Do you think you could get a shot of the fog output ten feet from a wall?
