All these light bulbs swaps...such lights, much bright.

We need to figure out how to get those C LEDS on as DRLs.

Although, I had them on today at noon and you could barely tell they were on. They are not audi level.

I always looked at them at dusk and they looked sharp. Not at midday, they look washed out.

Perhaps subbie did it for a reason.

C-LEDs as DRLs? Such easy, no scare.

We've done the re-wiring of DRLs to the position lights on my Legacy a few years ago - its a quick job. It will be a PITA on a Limited but a breeze on Base/Premium halogen assemblies.

Yes, in stock form they are not evenly lit, need some acrylic rods to fill the C fully and possibly even stronger LEDs to shine brightly. They won't be as bright as direct front-firing LEDs but should be plenty bright to be visible during the day as well.

Do we know if 2015 WRX/STi share the same window/windshield as 2014 Impreza?

The stupid turbo noise thread got me thinking. Do you guys hear the same thing? Around 3K the whine starts along with a distinct sound of air being compressed like pssssshhhhhhhhhhh.

My A5 never really made any noise. So this is new to me.

^I thought I read it does but I'm not certain. I hope so...so the tinting place can just precut the tint using the imprezza's windows as a templet.

You must be in a hurry to screw up this car. There is a You Tube video of the designers explaining how they designed each spring individually to optimize the suspension...(I guess you can do better)

To each his own I guess....
