Default 2016 WRX Limited C-lights and Halos

Much of the explanation for opening the headlight assembly and c-light installation can be found on this thread:

https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/sho....php?t=2785117

I wanted to focus on my installation and experience with installing halos. Note that these steps will apply to 15-17 WRX Limited models and 15-17 STIs since they'll have the factory LED projectors.

I'm not sponsored by Diode Dynamics but I have found that their products work exceptionally well and awesome customer service. The product pictures of their halos specific to the WRX show non-LED headlights and they seem to have different shroud sizes. I contacted Diode Dynamics and they recommended to get the 70mm halos for the limited/STIs.

Here are the links to their c-lights:

And to the halos:

I used the same method of de-pinning the halo connectors so I could easily wire them through the rubber boot of the high beams. Some folks just slip the cable through the high beam socket and the boot but I wanted to have a better seal. So I cut a small hole, pulled the wire through, and then used the butyl sealant around the opening. I did that for my c-lights and no condensation issues after 4 months



Next was mounting the halos to the shroud. I drilled holes and used 26-gauge wire to hold the halos.







You can't really notice the wire unless you're staring 4 inches from it. And when the lights are on you have no chance of seeing them.











This is the second time opening the headlights and I would highly recommend DIYers to do the same. The halos and c-lights set you apart from stock headlights and the added benefit of switchbacks from the Diode Dynamics c-lights has a really cool effect. For my halos I went ahead with the 70mm cool white (6000k) non-switchback but they have switchbacks, reds, and amber as other options. Super happy with the installation!
