My apologies if I'm misunderstanding your question!Hey Jake,
I didn't see mounting instructions specifically for the round pods... Only the standard with the bracket.
In the video, it had an WRX as one of the examples. How was mounted? Any adjustability on aiming?

I tend to agree just basing on my initial before/after observation that I dont see substantial increase in range, but not worse either. For me the intensity within short-mid range seems bit better on SL1. May go HIR1 9011 to 9005 hack for highs considering reviews I read on it. I put yellow Lamin-x on fogs but want to get a tad brighter. Did I read not to put yellow LED through yellow tint and to whiter LED instead?
I may, but thinking it may be too bright & draw unwanted attention. Trying to find what OEM lumens are & compare to the XP80. You happen to know OEM fog lumens? Feel that could be the right middle ground between OEM and blazing bright.I'll likely do the same mod with my highs, but likely not for a long time, since I rarely use my highs where I live and for my commute, except for the DRL's, of course.
The DD LED fog bulbs are substantially brighter than the OEM bulbs. If I were you, I'd get rid of the overlay and simply buy the yellow version of your chosen replacement LED bulbs.
Sorry I should have specified - im taking about the bit that comes from the SL1 that you plug into the factory low beam harness. (sorry that's still a poor explanation but idrk how else to explain)For the moment I have disconnected the DRL resistor. I have plans to install LED strips in place of the headlights to serve as DRL.
Unfortunately, this is true. Due to current DOT regulation being enforced this year, LED and HID bulbs should not be used as replacements in halogen headlight housings. Because of this, we are forced to seise the sale of both LED and HID headlight replacement bulbs. Unfortunately, this applies to all LED headlight bulbs and HID conversion kits, not just Diode Dynamics. Thank you for sharing the link.According to a poster on the Crosstrek forum, his state recently failed his Crosstrek's safety inspection because he had DD SL-1 bulbs in a halogen headlight housing. He dug into it a bit further and discovered that the SL-1 bulbs are no longer street legal. See postings #8 and #13 in this thread. Consequently DD is suspending the sale of LED headlight bulbs in the US: Street Use of LED Bulbs
