    If your car did not come with fog lights you can easily install them since the car is prewired.The kit can be purchased https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/p...oducts_id=1732

    The install involves taking off the bumper(you can find the instructions on how to take off your bumper in the hella post),replacing the stalk ,and mounting & connecting the fog assembly & replacing the front surrounds.All of this is included in the kit.You can also do the install without taking off the bumper by removing the side vent(as described below in "How to level your fogs") but this is a little tougher as you will not be able to see what you are doing.

    The instructions are not very helpful.The toughest part is taking off the steering column cover to install the stalk..Just remember that all screws are installed in the down>upward position ,so they are accessed from under the steering.Also you do not have to rip apart the dash trim like the instructions state.To plug in the relay just remove the fuse panel cover just towards the lower left of the steering & shine a flashlight to you right & you will see the relays.

    DIY write up by our own Subaken 2011-2012 WRX/STI OEM FOG LIGHT INSTALL

    Most cars come from the factory with the fog lights leveled wrong.

    I'd like to see a detailed fix on the door panel spacer rattle problem (and I don't mean just removing them and leaving the panels vulnerable to being dented inward). My dealer first claimed there was a bulletin on the problem and they'd order the replacement spacer parts, but when I called back about it they said there was no bulletin and to call them again in a month to check again (crock of BS if you ask me; they should fix it one way or another period).
