    Thanks Diode Dynamics!

    Just ordered some new lights for my 2015 Crosstrek Premium.

    Trunk LED Strip, front turn signals, boomerangs, and plate lights.

    Have to wait until I install the signals and boomerangs for my next time pulling the bumper but love the others.

    Super easy install and love the price/warranty.

    From what I remember, you shouldn't have to pull the bumper to replace the turn signal bulbs. You definately don't need to with the eyebrow lights. Open the hood, take off the side panel, use a long screwdriver (unless you have long skinny arms) to remove the socket, change out the bulb and reverse the process.

    Thanks for ordering with us @Hoot213!

    Just as a reminder, we have installation videos for many of the locations on the XV

    You won't need to remove the bumper or headlights to install the "Boomerang" or "C-Light" LED replacements



    Feel free to give us a call if you need any assistance or tips! (314) 205-3033

    Any pictures?

    I attempted to install the 12 LED strip from Diode Dynamics today and failed miserably. First i decided to trim the strip from 12 to 9 LEDs so it could fit behind the plastic and it still didn't fit so I sanded down the edges and just got it to fit and then realized i had bent the little piece of metal that the white switch uses to turn the light on and off. So not only did I cut and ruin the perfectly good 12 LED strip, but I broke this plastic piece that I'm gonna have to replace now... All in an attempt to make my crosstreks trunk brighter. In the end I blame Subaru for not making a better lighting solution from stock.

    So anyway, what LED should I try now?

    I also have to give a big "Thank You" for quick deliveries, quality products and fairly easy installation of the map, dome, reverse and license plate lamps. I was able to do 2 Crosstreks within an hour. Thinking about which other ones to do next.
