Arrived today and installed: New Style JDM Subaru LED Fog Cover/Bezel: Looks way better than the old style and matches the hexagon pattern on the front grille.

Non functional vents, you can use the vents to make custom brake cooling guides.

You have options on how to install this. You need the harness - plug and play from either subispeed or smy performance. As for functionality it is up to you if you want to run it as drl’s etc. i used the smy performance jdm drl plug and play harness and tapped power from the headlamp sidemarker and turns on when park/tails are on.

I also used the "plug and play" harness from SMY and was disappointed to find out that it's not truly pnp and requires splicing additional wires via quick taps. Their harness also doesn't include any instructions.

I saw a lot of debate on tapping the sidemarker or the 3 wire plug directly below the headlight adjuster (which is essentially accessory power). But I really wanted the LEDs to sync with the C-lights. I read the FSM and thought I had it figured out, but I was missing one wire. I found that I needed to tap both wires 6 & 7 on the headlight harness connectors. I then ran the grounds to the existing grounding points on the frame.

Passenger headlight:
  • Tap wires 6 (black/blue) & 7 (red/green) and Y the connection to the red power wire on the harness. It's recommended to use diodes on each pin.
  • Run the black ground wire on the harness to the existing ground point on the frame.
Driver side headlight:
  • Tap wires 6 (black/green) & 7 (red/green) and Y the connection to the red power wire on the harness. It's recommend to use diodes on each pin.
  • Run the black ground wire on the harness to the existing ground point on the frame.
Someone else made a super helpful video and wiring schematic that I can't take credit for. Just passing along the information.

YouTube:
2018 WRX STI - JDM S4 Bezel LED Running Light CLight Wiring - YouTube

Wiring schematic:
Shared album - Ryan W - Google Photos

The only downside is that the LEDs still won't dim with the C lights, but that's not a big deal to me.

Will the old LED models fit into the new design bezels?

Which old LED model? Are you referring to the earlier 2018 version LED lens?
