    On the Forester forum, there are a lot of complaints about poor nighttime visibility on very dark roads due to the headlight cutoff line (and possibly other reasons). Do Crosstreks have the same issue? Are the headlights designed similarly?
  2. Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    I have a 2016 Crosstrek and noticed this week the LO Beams stay on when the HI beams are activated. I’m not 100% sure but I believe the Lo beams usually turn off when hi beams are activated? Anyways, I switched the hi and lo beam relays in the engine compartment fuse box and got the same result...

    Hi! I just got my new Crosstrek Sport: Ice Silver, option package, auto dim mirrors w/compass, rear bumper cover, and rear back seat protector (BTW, paid MSRP, no tricks or gimmicks by the dealer). Now looking to finish it off with accessories. I searched the site for recommendations, and I...

    Hi, I am getting my '21 Crosstrek Outdoor trim this Wednesday and I am so eager to change its H11 Low Beams bulbs right away and possibly its High Beams HB3 soon. planning on putting these: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B077BT6M6Z/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A20DLZVH04R37U&psc=1 - H11 Low...
  5. Appearance and Body
    Soooo... I wasn't able to find many 1st gen Crosstreks that have had their headlight housing blacked out (DIY style). I decided to take the dive and do it myself this past weekend. What I was trying to go for was an JDM/OEM sort of look. I didn't want it to look cheap or look like a heavily...
  6. General Discussion Forum
    Does Anyone know if it is possible to repair a broken tab on an LED headlight for a 2018 Crosstrek? I currently drive a 2018 base model, but I want to upgrade my halogen headlights to the LED's that are found on the limited model. Unfortunately every website and online store I visit that has the...

    I've been trying to search to forum to see if there was any leads on this, but is there any discernible differences between a pair of headlight assemblies from a '14 compare to a '16? I'm asking because I'm looking to cop a pair from a scrap yard for a retrofit project.
  8. Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    My 2014, 132K, has had so many headlights blow I have lost track. Replace one, the other goes. Replace that one, a few weeks later the other one will go. I have replaced at least a half dozen since October alone. Have tried the expensive ones, and the cheap ones, same results. I read online...

    Those of you with Limited’s, do you think SRH makes a difference? Do you see a benefit? Do they really work?
  10. Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Has anyone had any luck or recommendations with any good LED replacements to the stock C-Light bulbs? I've been using the Diode Dynamics HP5's for about 2 years now but every few months they start crapping out on my 2016 and start to blink. I've replaced them at least 3-4 times now (only $12...
  11. Dealer Service, Maintenance, and Warranty Issues
    Hey everyone, I've recently picked up my 2012 XV and I totally love it. Yet, there are some things I've got to do about it, and first thing I don't really like is the condition of the headlights. The plastic lens went yellow, and has scratches. So I was wondering, is it a good idea to try...
  12. Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Hi all, I'm considering taking my LHD 2014, XV back to the UK (RHD) when my current work contract ends, potentially in 6 months time, and wondered if anyone had any idea if the XV headlights are the same as Impreza of the same years. Also, is there any difference in construction if you have the...
  13. Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Wife's new XV has the non-automatic headlights. So, the headlights don't turn on when the door unlock button is pushed. It's the only vehicle we own (except my '90 Suzuki Samurai) that doesn't turn the headlights on when unlocked. Has anyone installed a relay between the headlamps and the...
  14. Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    Hey guys/gals! New Subaru owner here. Just picked up my 2016 Premium and I was curious as to the 'best' light bulbs to get the most visibility at night. Im not looking to do any conversions of any sort (just yet) just looking for a simple replacement but would like the brightest bulbs. Help!
  15. Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    I love the black accents on the headlights on the bright yellow special edition. Before you ask...yes, I searched. I didn't find any posts about swapping the SE lights into any other XV. Is this possible? If you know or if you know of a post, please advise. I know my limited has auto lights...
  16. Lighting, Electrical, and EyeSight
    I have a 2015 Crosstrek & I notice that when I am driving at night the lights on the bottom will sometimes turn on and off on their own. I'm not sure if it is the fog lights or not, but it happens very briefly (about 15 seconds or so) and it is very unpredictable. Is this some kind of safety...
  17. Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    The automatic headlights seem to do a good job of turning on/off with changes in daylight. And, as expected, the brightness of the displays are changed accordingly... When the headlights are off, the displays are set to their maximum brightness When the headlights are on, the displays are...

    Has anybody bought or seen these yet? I had to tuck it in my waist band after seeing hows sexy these headlights are. I would love to throw down money for these but haven't seen much feedback about them. I saw some reviews on the site itself, aliexpress.com, and, like anything, there were good...
