Installed JDM rear fog/brake light this afternoon. I know there are many options out there but 1) Don’t care for the F1 flashing function. 2) Want a clean install using OEM mounting points for the wire and entry into the trunk. 3) Don’t t want to have to change out the entire assembly should the LEDs malfunction or burns out. With OEM, you just need to replace the bulb. I held off doing this mod because I also didn’t want it to be on full brightness at all times. I re-visited this mod earlier this year when I saw SubiBros duel intensity harness and contacted DJ to see if it can be used with the JDM light, he explained that it is indeed a viable option if it is coupled with a proper LED bulb. He even offered to custom make a DI harness to uses the JDM plug-in. However, I ended up putting it off again as I was unable to find any information on how to mount the wire correctly. So I elected to purchase the S208/S209 front bezels instead. About 2 weeks ago, I stumbled onto an old thread on NASIOC with posts by steverx05 that was buried deep in the thread about the mounting points. And with that, I went back to visit SubiBros and much to my surprise, they now have a kit put together specifically for the JDM light. So I took advantage of the Black Friday sale to made the purchase. In conclusion, I want to say a huge “Thank you” to SubiBros and DJ and also, to acknowledge that I have some serious OCD issues when it comes to cars. Anyway, here are some photos I took this afternoon if anyone else also suffers the same illness as I do.

This is the inside of the bumper, you can see the 3 mounting points for the clips. However, I was unable to find the 4th mounting point anywhere. I think Subaru may have changed the bumper on 18+ cars. So I used some foam and wrapped up the 4th clip to prevent possible rattling inside the bumper.

That red is such a good color. Looking great. Those front bezels really add to the aggressive look. I'm trying to decide between S4 w/ DRL and fogs, s209, or JDM w/ DRLs no fogs - your s209 look makes it very tempting. Looking forward to watching your progress.
