    New WRX owner in Houston

    Just purchased my 2013 WRB WRX about a week ago. Brand new to the Subaru brand in general. I have driven an Accord, 300zx (NA) and 2 Spec-v's. This is my first turbocharged vehicle and I am loving it. Still in my break-in period and at the rate I drive my cars, I will be there for a little while. Just a quick question; does anyone know where I could pick up some aftermarket tail lights? I have looked at several sites and they all seem to stop at the '07 models.

    Welcome!

    What is it you don't like about the stock tails?

    Nothing really, they look good. I just like to look at options for visual customization since im not much into engine modification anymore.

    Gotcha. Reason I asked; lots of people with the later models like to do overlays for a little visual distinction. Do a search for "overlays" and you'll see what I mean.

    Thanks for that. Looking at some Lamin-x overlays, they dont look too difficult to install. Also, was looking at the Morimoto Retro-Quik system for HIDs. Saw a rather unfavorable thread on here regarding rotational alignment and light leaks, it was from March or so. Does anyone know if TRS have fixed these issues and will the '08-'11 set fit on my '13?

    I'm not even sure I want to do a retrofit since I am not sure I am keen on putting my headlights in the oven and then getting them re-sealed properly.

    I picked up my WRB STI from Gillman North last week. I love the color.

    Good luck on the mods as everyone have different tastes.
