I installed these interior neon lights. The blulbs are hidden so only the neon glow can be seen and the effect is very cool. The lights were each $25. They are originally designed to be plugged into a cigarette lighter, but I wanted a cleaner, more permanent look so i wired directly into the car which also allowed me to hide the wires. This requires some wire cutting and connecting. Also, because each light comes with its own "box" containing a transformer, power switch, and music pulse switch, I wired the front two lights into their own and box and the rear two into their own box as well. I originally had all four running through one box, but it was too much; the tranformer over heated and fried. luckily I had spares... the effect of the lights bouncing with the music is awesome... though I don't use it while I'm driving. The glow is not a distraction while driving, as I thought it would be. The whole project took my buddy and I about two hours. The power is taken from the audio power wires inside the dash, and the wires for the wire are fed through the side panels. All wires are hidden. The bulbs are held up by velcro and tape and are hidden from view. Here are some pics:

Here's a non-blurry pic of the front. Also, you can see the two boxes that control the lights on the left-hand side of the center consol near the driver's seat:

Here's an up-close pic of the boxes that the neons are wired through. I velcroed them to the center consol on the driver's side. It's a very clean look. Each box has two buttons on the top: one for power, one for the music pulse setting, and each has sensitivity adjustability for the music pulsing.

You definitly did a clean install with those, good job :thumbup:

Also....the interior of the 05 looks sweet, I like it a lot.

What colors did they have besides green? Would've been cool if you matched it to another color in the car

good job on the neon. VERY clean install. Although I wouldn't get something like that, I think it looks pretty neat.

The green neons match the green on the dash and the green that is used on my aftermarket stereo head unit (check 2nd pic) :) Looks sweet.

Came out good, all you can see is the reflection ...

I can't tell from the pic, where'd you put the control boxes???

Edit : Nevermind I just noticed the shifter. I'd probably would've put them out of site. Inside the glove box or something like that

Nice, i did the same thing to mine, although it's blue. People say it's rice i say its not rice. Reason being it has been done very clean. See ricers like to skip steps in making it look nice, instead they make it look rice. So a BUMP to you man. Making the wrx just stand out even more!:wiggles:

Looks pretty cool and sets your car apart. I had a flashing blue neon light in my last car.. but I just don't think it would "fit in" if I put it in my new Legacy. :D

I think the same setup would look cool on a wr blue impreza with blue neon.
