My suggestion to you is if this is your main driving beam, stay away from leds.

Frankly, I’m a little tired of being blinded by 50% of oncoming driver’s LEDs, while my own driving path is in shadows when using low beams; and only adequately illuminated when using my high beams which are set to a low beam pattern (beam approved by several local police officers as “fine” - and have never received a “flash).

Did you go and watch the Headlight Revolution review video? The LED beam “coverage” was identical to halogens - just brighter.

My question was to doublecheck this by asking current Subaru drivers on this forum - doublecheck ease of install/fit and result.

I think my 2017 WRX Limited adjusts the LEDs downward to avoid blinding other drives.

That is a super idea if it is built-in.

Sorry to post my own thread, but maybe it will help. I used morimotos, they are a nice beam.

No problem! In fact thanks!

So to sum up: if we install the Morimoto 2.0 as they come in the box, WITHOUT adding your resistor solution, our daytime running lights will NOT function 100% correctly? Will they function at all?

Personally I don’t see that as a problem - in high risk traffic I would just put in my low beams.

Thanks!

They will be the same brightness as high beam all the time which is why folks complain about being blinded. If you unplug the factory resistor you can disable your DRLs and your headlights will otherwise operate normally.
