Default Headlight Overlays and JDM Console Hood

Got a few things this week from UPS. Received my Cobb exhaust this morning. Hopefully I can get that on the car this week.

I also received a pretty cheap mod. Smoked overlay stickers for the amber reflectors in the headlight:


On my 2004 WRX, I baked the headlights and then removed the amber out. I wasn't about to do it to a 2016 STI so I found these on Subispeed and picked them up. Not the best pictures, but I wanted to show what they look like. I didn't like the fitment as well as I liked the taillight overlays, but for $14 or whatever they were, they do the job!

Before:


After:


I also installed the JDM Console hood into the car. Not the best picture, but it will do:

Default Cobb TBE Finally Complete

I finally got the Cobb CBE delivered last week so I put it on over the weekend. I was worried it would be too loud (my 2004 was way too loud). I think it sounds great and looks just as good. I am actually quite surprised by how much quicker it made me feel the car was. I know the gains are minimal, but I guess just hearing the sound along with the turbo kicking in makes it "feel" quicker.



I started to install an AFR gauge, but backed out after it took too long. While I had a lot of the trim pieces out, I decided to try plastidip. I really like the S207 red interior trim pieces on the Japanese model, so I decided to try it out on mine. I figured worse case was I'd just remove it if I didn't like it or it didn't hold up well for any reason.

Can you post a video/pictures of what the reverse and turn signals look like with all red vinyl overlays... Also where did you purchase them from ? I've been wanting to do all red for awhile but I thought is was illegal to not have any white displaying from your taillights. One last note your not having any issues at all with the Stock wheel with 25mm Perrin Spacers ? Congrats with your build WhatWarranty?

Unless there is something I am missing, not having clear is not illegal. But could vary from state to state. There is also a cool mod on Subispeed that is a red inlay, that leaves a little white showing, it's pretty cool.

Cflo23: I honestly never thought of the legality of the taillights until you brought it up. Uccracing is probably correct about it varying state to state, but in Kentucky I should technically have more white on my reverse lights when they are powered on. The red inlay Uccracing mentioned from Subispeed (same site I got my all red ones from) would leave white around the edges and looks pretty cool. That would probably keep you legal. In Kentucky, we aren't terribly strict about car rules but if anyone ever hassles me, I am sure I can get away with it by just pulling them back off.

I can throw a video on here when I get off work tonight. I haven't seen them on, but I would guess it will be a light red/pink color on the reverse lights. If safety is a concern, I would suggest not doing the red ones only because they do not illuminate the ground behind the vehicle as well as nothing on them will. At least they look bad ass, though! LOL.

Default Overlay video/little bit of that exhaust, too!

I'm late on getting this up here for you but here's a video of the reverse lights on. I had a tough time getting good lighting or quality of picture. Sorry for that. It's a slight pink tone, and I didn't do the turn signal in the video. The turn signal is more of a bright red so it's pretty noticeable.

Video shows the overlays as well as that turbo back exhaust LOL.



Let me know if you have trouble viewing the video.

If there is ever a Lexington/Louisville meetup I would be more than willing to make the drive from Owensboro for a long weekend. We try to do a Keeneland trip once a year and whenever UGA plays UK we go to the football games.

Also I plan to go out to Tail of the Dragon this year for the Boxer Takeover.

I'd love to do a meetup. I'm sure there is something around here but I missed the northern Kentucky one back in the fall. I get jealous of all the meet ups I see from postings and YouTube.
