So you're saying the LED high beams do not run at reduced power like the halogens and run at full brightness even as DRL's? Also, do you notice any flickering in the DRL's?I was the same way. I have LED's in my Tacoma and when I got my CrossTrek the bulbs were just not bright enough. I eneded up going with the Diode Dynamics ones as when i called them they walked me through what I needed. Yes the LED high beams for the DRL are bright but in the middle of the you want visibility and no one is going to flash you for them anyways.
Im a new 2020 owner as well as I got mine at the beginning of the year. They run at full brightness as a DRL. This is directly from their website:So you're saying the LED high beams do not run at reduced power like the halogens and run at full brightness even as DRL's?

I'm a new owner of a 2020 Premium 6MT and would love to hear these answers. Thanks!
No it was included with my high beams. I don’t know if it was completely needed but I put it on anyways.Thanks for the detailed reply - it all sounds great! Did you have to pay extra for the anti-flicker kit? Also, did you have to remove any pieces of the trim or car so you could remove the old bulbs and replace them?
It was open hood and on the battery side just reach down and unscrew old plug new in. On the passenger side I had to just pull those black tabs off the front and the silver tabs on the side as seen in the picture. Then unplugged old bulb put in new one, zip tied the cables to keep it clean in there, and put it back on. Nothing is off permanently all told took me about 15 minutes.Awesome. Thanks again for the help!
One more question: Did you need to remove any trim pieces or car parts when replacing the stock bulbs?
You might try 9011s to replace the 9005s. The color is not white.Hi Folks, I have a 2019 Crosstrek Premium.
I have Both Diode Dynamic H11 Low beam and SL1 Yellow Fog lights. They are amazing!
I had to return my DD 9005 High beam bulb because It was turned on full blast for DRL mode.
Incoming traffic didn't appreciate high beam to the face during the day, so I removed them for safety reasons.
I tried Morimoto LED 9005 for my DRL and it dimmed on DRL Mode, which was great, but it flicker like crazy, so I returned them as well. I even tried using their anti-flicker module, but it still didn't work.
I tried many different other high beam bulb for my crosstrek, but none of them worked properly when on DRL mode.
