    Auxiliary Headlight Switch Placement

    I have a '14 WRX, and was wanting to install some auxiliary headlights. However, there isn't a auxiliary panel that I can mount the switch to. I was wondering if anyone here has had similar issues, and if anyone has a good suggestion for the placement of the switch(es).

    I'd rather not have it on the high beams circuit if that can be avoided. Also, I'm thinking of running 4 external lights, so I'd like to be able to have two switches. If the community thinks a one-switch solution for both sets of lights is a better solution, I'm all ears.

    If you don't have fog lights you could use the factory turn signal stalk as a switch if you get one. You'd have to reroute the wiring though.

    Thanks for the idea, but I do have the factory fog lamps.

    When I had my '11, my 2 toggle switches for lights were on the shifter surround. Just a couple 5/8" holes, so not the prettiest option but cheaper to replace than some other pieces I could be drilled in the area.

    I was contemplating on drilling holes into the dead switches in the center console where the heated seats buttons would go. I have a base without heated seats so they are just blanks. This way you could easily go back to stock by just purchasing new blanks from the dealership.

    I was actual thinking of taking it 1 step better and ordering an OEM set of heated seat switches and using them to run auxiliary lighting.
