Question Rear Trunk light?

I think I don't have a rear trunk light in my STi.

I saw you can purchase a Impreza rear trunk light for 35 online and it says if you have the security system it adds trunk protection.

I was wondering if anyone has installed or if you can install this in the STi.

Thanks.

Your STi should have one. Mine does. It is on the under side of the rear deck just off to the left. The light has a frosted looking plastic cover over it.

Yeah, I looked before and saw it.

Thanks.

Now, do you know if it alerts you if the trunk is open? I have no indication that my trunk is open from inside the car.

Other than the fact that you can't see anything out the rearview mirror!

Seriously, there is nothing to let you know the trunk is open. Having such a heavy spoiler on makes it stay down and not just pop right up when it is open so I can see your concern. I can say that with the upgraded security system there is protection on the trunk. One of the ways to arm the system is by hitting the all lock button on the drivers door and then closing the doors. Once the last door closes it arms. Well it does the same thing for the trunk. If the trunk is open it doesn't arm until the trunk is closed.

Ummm...when I pop my trunk whether I am inside or out...the trunk lid pops up a good 4 inches.

I wonder if the springs are adjustable? I have not personally stuck my head under there and looked.
