I bought mine around 70 USD. Subaru of Australia's part number is SA1062 for the Headliught covers. These covers are tougher and much more protective than the stonegards.

Here's a link to a previous groupbuy

Oh btw, I saw someone selling this on the Private forums a week ago. Do a search if you're interested.

ok.. so I am confused guys... think I messed up my order...

I only order 2 amber bulbs (the rear taillight SOA bulbs), but upon looking at my headlights their are actually 4 bulbs that need to be changed? high beams and blinkers? or are the blinkers already amber? So do I need 4 amber bulbs or 2?

thanks in advance

You only need two if all you want to make amber is the turn signals. If you want to make all of the bulbs that are covered with amber plastic amber again, then yeah you'll need 4... ALL of the bulbs in the headlights of the '04 are clear bulbs.

But I didn't think there were bulbs behind the amber side pieces?? There's only the parking light up in the corner that's already got an amber bulb in it. That piece in the corner's just a reflector isn't it?

The turn signal/parking light and the corner marker bulb are both behind seperate pieces of orange plastic. The side piece is a reflector with no bulb behind it... correct. But, ALL of the bulbs are clear. So yes, if you want all the bulbs that are behind amber plastic to be amber, you'll need 4 bulbs. I just used amber bulbs for the turn signals. and left the others clear.

There's nothing stopping you from clearing your lights this weekend. You can put the bulbs in while the headlights are installed in the car. Just clear them and put the bulbs in when they arrive. You should take a look at your lights man... open the hood! =]

I think he's saying what's the big deal? =]

Just put in the amber turn signal bulbs, leave the marker bulbs white, and clear the lenses. All the marker bulbs do is illuminate when your headlights are on. They don't blink (i'm 95% sure at least). Then if you really need yellow bulbs when your headlights are on, put the other set of ambers in when they arrive.

Why do you want amber marker lights i guess is the question. Not that i care... i don't even know why i'm responding... to each his own man, if you want them get them!

As stated earlier in this thread, in California, No, it's NOT a big deal. In fact it's completely legal to have clear blinkers.

When you bake the headlight, does the headlight become deformed in anyway. One would figure that the bottom of where the lights sat while getting heated would melt a bit. So my question is after taking the thing apart, was there any noticeable defects? Thanks, but awesome post!
