    Interior Illumination

    Does anyone know if you can just buy the bulbs or LEDs to swap. Just scooped up a 2011 and it has blue lights on the floor. WTF who would do such a retard move, the whole interior lights up red except for the floor so annoying. Any help would be great.

    Search and you can find several online sites that sell the lights for a reasonable price.

    Actually there is not a blue light in the small storage hole. It is red. That is what I dont get. I dont want to have to buy the entire kit just the bulb/led part that mounts under the dash

    Yes, I believe they used blue on the 08+ and changed to red for 11.

    BigSkyWRX changed his from blue when he did his interior lights on his 09.

    ^this is what confused me, because his screen name implys he drives an 08.

    Either way, I'm glad mine is red since every other light in the interior (except the domes) is red.

    i stand corrected. my 2010 is blue, but if the 2011 is red, then i guess the blue really has no business being in the car.

    I just got my almost new 08 sti the other day (I'll post in the newbies section when I get some time). My cubby hole is red. I do not know if it was changed. I am actually wanting to change the cubby, footwells, buttons/instruments to blue.

    Anyone know how hard it is to install the footwell LEDs? I just recently got a 2011 and it came with a red one in the cubby but none in the footwells. I recently ordered the kit and am looking to install this weekend.

    at least they got smart and started putting the red ones in the cubby.. my 10 came with a blue on in the cubby.. when I put in the foot well illumination I had to change the cubby one out too.. though not much of a bother since you have to be in there anyway to plug in the harness

    Yeah I can't quite figure out why they would have put a blue one in there in the first place...EVERYTHING else inside is red.
