Diode Dynamics

I believe Diode Dynamics has a set for the Legacy which is the sedan equivalent of the Outback.

Are you going to plug DD in every ancient DRL thread you can find?

And, BTW, you are incorrect (for both threads). The OP is looking to get rid of the stock yellow/orange DRLs (which are just dimmed high beams) that many of us are stuck with because Subaru chose to put under-powered LED "boomerangs" ("c-lights") in early Gen 5s. TMK, aside from putting in a brighter LED string (someone did that and it looked cheesy to me), our options are (1) hack the wiring to use the low-power stock LEDs, resulting in very dim DRLs, (2) disconnect the resistor module and have no DRLs, (3) add turn-signal switchbacks after disconnecting the DRLs (also requires some modification), or (4) replace the high beam bulb with an LED or HID unit and have blindingly bright DRLs (for those that will function on the reduced voltage).

You forgot the easiest option of all for those offended by the stock DRL arrangement... (5) leave the headlights turned on, day and night.
