Very nice Subaru. How are the Puddle Lights working out? I just ordered a 2012 X Touring, and I left that option off because I thought they might not stand up to any abuse.

Nice XT! Just picked up my '12 FXT Touring in Marine Blue! Looks like a twin to you (minus the sports grill). How are you liking the Access Port? Can you notice a difference without any other mods?

Sorry, it's been awhile. The puddle lights are holding up nicely. I have not had any problems at all. The only problem I have had with any of the lights was the passenger side fog light went out. Took it to the dealer and they replaced it. I have to admit the glow is pretty cool looking when it is really dark out. The closest thing I have gone to off road so far is jumping a curb as I was leaving a car wash bay. I was pretty impressed cause it was a fairly big curb and it handled it fine!

I do like the access port. I definitely noticed a difference and it seems like there isn't as much lag and runs more efficiently. Not a huge gain by any means, but enough that I noticed a difference and was smiling like an idiot because of the potential. I have not noticed a decline in gas mileage either.
