It was a plug and play install. disconnect battery remove the plastic around the steering wheel cover 4 screws total, remove light assembly 2 screws plug new one in do reverse, open fuse box place new fuse in bottom right coner. go outside take out thr 9 screws for the bumber, pop out the old filler place lamp in put the 3 screws on each side plug the wire thats already there in and put bumper back on. pics to come

So the ebay lights came with the factory switch too? I saw the connectors for the fog lights when I had the bumper loose for the grille. Was thinking about installing fogs myself.

Looks good. I am thinking of installing OEM fog lights myself. Good to hear that it is a pretty easy install.

I have a base-model 08 WRX and I had my fog lights installed later on. The OEM fog light kit comes with a new headlight/turn signal stalk that allows you to turn the fog lights on and off - just as if the car originally came with them when you get the Premium Package. Also, the instrument cluster will indicate whether the fog lights are on or off (obviously the headlights have to be on to turn on the fog lights).

kit came with good directions but some of it isnt clear. hope this helps... you dont have to take the whole dash off to put fuse in just put it in from underneath. you can see the silver heads of the 3 screws in the pics...




might have to take metal braket off by removing clip from wiring harness, and removing three screws



dont have to take whole bumper off, just splash guards and work from underneath..

love the fogs, yellow bulbs from candlepower are cool looking.
