Build thread for mx3frik's 2013 XV Crosstrek, Canadian's Sport package.
First post will be somewhat of a summary/place holder/table of contents as more information is added in subsequent posts eventually. Lots of inspirations on this forum and around the web for the mods, this is just to document how I have done some of the things, since I tend to like going for shortcuts, and hopefully will be helpful.
Interior and audio:
Factory head unit equalizer tweak through "hidden menu".
LED strip overhead cargo lighting.
Backup camera to factory multi-function display.
Upgraded LED glove box lighting.
Older generation Subaru under-seat subwoofer.
LED interior lighting throughout.
WeatherTech DigitalFit floor mats. Great for messy winters and trails.
Generic economic cargo and seat-back protectors.
Hardwired descrete 3-port 12 V accessory sockets
Cubby hole LED addition
Body, exterior, and lighting
DRL moved to fog lamps at full power (rather than high beam at a reduced power as stock).
RTX Scorpion wheels as winter rims, found cheaply on kijiji, likely painted bronze.
Fumoto oil drain valve. Great to go with the skid plates.
LED front corner lights.
Primitive racing skid plates (with oil drain hole machined) with factory mud tray retained.
Rear bumper protection pad, window, and hood deflectors - can be seen in images below at the bottom of this post.
Headlight protection film - *removed due to distortion in lighting pattern.
9005 LED high beam (claimed 3000 lm each): removed due to excessive bream spread from unmatched focal regions to halogen bulb in this car's headlight housings.
PlastiDipped front grill, chrome ring around front and rear bumper logos, and rear badges.
Please check local regulations before performing certain modifications. I am not affiliated with any manufacturers or vendors linked in this post, they are for references purposes only.
P.S. Thought this post was a bit lacking without pictures, so here goes.
