Default Mostly a Subaru ;)

We had a new Saab Saabaru 9-2x in last week for some dress up / protective headlight and fog light covers. The owner wanted Smoke, but we also test fit some of our GT Yellow and HID Blue covers to see how they would look on the new Saab. They were hard to photograph as it was a rainy day and the shop lights are a bit strange, but you get the idea.





And with our Smoked headlights and GT Yellow Fogs outside in the drizzle.

Now that might be Subaru's solution to the Tribeca.

Thanks and yes we have them for most vehicles made in the past 10 years or so. The 04/05 WRX's headlights are harder to install than the Saab's though- funny bulge for the directional requires patience.

As for color, it is a personal choice. I would probably go with our HID Blue for the subtle up-scale look or GT Yellow for the sports car racer LaMans look! The white race car has a set of our GT Yellow headlight covers.

we've seen the smoke headlights for the 05 legacy.

they cut down on the amount of light.

they were not recommended for night-time use.

You mean these?



other red's here

And yes if you are looking to keep the lights bright as can be, we do suggest GT Yellow or HID Blue over the Smoked ones.

LOL, ok, your photoshopped smoke version is not dark enough. The passengers side yellow one is fairly close and the blue is too blue given the mid day sun in the photo.

Doesn't red jack your insurance up more than other car colors?

Nope. And I've never been hassled by cops more than any other car on the road.

White does though. They claim that white is harder to see and will get into more accidents. I say do a dam study and find out who can and who can't drive and charge accordingly.
