    I just installed the red kit yesterday. I replaced the blue LED in the center storage area with a red one.

    It is part:66237SA120 Lamp Pocket
    I found it at Subaru Parts Warehouse - Subaru Parts - Subaru Performance Parts
    You can probably get it at your local dealership instead, if you prefer.

    It took 30 minutes to install. My girlfriend had smaller hands than me making it easy for her to feed the cord. No body panels were removed.

    Dartholomew on NASIOC has an awesome post with pics on how to install it. How do you install the Footwell Illumination Kit (H201SSC000) in the '09 FXT/WRX/STI? - Page 4 - NASIOC

    I made one small change to his. I installed the drivers side light with the bracket above the hole instead of under. It is similar to the passenger side light installation. I used a socket wrench with an extender for the passenger side since it was impossible to hold onto the nut any other way. A pliers was fine for the driver's side.

    The site I ordered from had good prices on the kit too. Even though you have to pay shipping, it kind of is like paying tax. Plus I ordered some other stuff too making it more worthwhile. It will probably take a few days for them to ship it since they had to order the red LED from another warehouse.

    Hope this helps anybody interested.

    Is the install super easy for the wrx? It looks like they have the wiring set up for something down there already, but I was not sure if thats what it was for. I figured I would ask since the spt exhaust installation directions were nonexistent, not that they are really needed.

    Does it also change the color from blue to red in the storage area between the footwells?
    Hey, i put them in my wrx like 6 months ago and it super super easy to install. You wire it through the light in the middle of the dash is super ease..With directions takes it like 20 min. Only problem that i saw was mounting on the passenger side, but just bolted to an existed screw..

    Not to bring back an old thread, but does anyone know what type of lights these are? My 09 wrx came with the blue and I have red led's that I have sort of ghetto rigged in the back seats and it looks cool having the blue in front and red in back.

    So what I am wondering is what type of light they are because I would like to purchase the same type in red, I also know nothing about wiring these but my buddy does, so I am wondering if it is possible to splice the wire so that I could have all 4 lights turn on, I would plan on wiring these ones to the front ones. Sorry if this is confusing at all.

    I'm ordering the red kit today for my 2011 WRX, just wondering does anyone know if the kit also includes lights for the cupholders?? The dealer told me it did but it doesn't say in the product description and I haven't heard anyone on here mention it yet :S haha

    no- but there is a replacement for that console light- it's the oe STi one (red)- I'd recommend doing that at the same time as they share part of the same harness

    are you talking about the console light or something else? the console light can be changed to red (in 09 anyways it was blue) by swapping in the console light from the STi

    yeah, same here. i bought and installed mine (red) and it only had 2 small lights, one for each footwell.

    install was pretty easy. having an extra hand to help pass the harness through from one side to the other is a big help.
