I updated the Radio today for tzhe second time. It is a Kenwood DPX 503 U which matches the interiour pretty good and looks OEMish.

I still have to hook up the radio antenna b/c the original cabel is to short. And I also have to hook up the remote cabel of the subwoofer and the display dimmer from the lightswitch.

Normally there is only one 21watt rear fog light in the center section.
I added three 5 watt bulbs and one 21/5watt bulb in the center section. And connected all four 5watt filaments to to tail light. So now the the centerpiece lights up with the standart tail lights. Brake lights are still only in the outer tails.

Looks like Mini D2S projectors? I thought you were going to use an E55? It does look like fitting the MD2S is a lot easier than the FX-R in the Outback lights.

Yes, they are mini D2S. The size is really good. I don't have to mess with the housing cap at all :)

I tryed some E46 (three inch) but they are too big and I was going to get some E55 from a friend but they are the almost the same size as the E46. Then I tried to combine the Mini D2S and E46 put the output was not as good as the Mini D2S (Even though I know that the Mini D2S is far away from perfect)

I will keep this updated but this project is going to take several weeks.

I added three extra trunk lights and upgraded all the interiour lights to LED. Except the reading lights in the front. They would have been too bright.

The three trunk lights I uses are of a Volkswagen Golf MKIII. But everything else will fit. Hooked them all up to the normal trunk light.

The LEDs I used are all "warm white" in color.


The headlights are almost finished !!! Thank god this project is coming to an end.

They are not in order but I hope you enjoy them anyways. This was the biggest project so far for this car. I worked half a year on these. With lots of week long brakes inbetween of course.

The projectors are Mini D2S and I used the S-Max shrouds.

Would you mind sharing the part number or more details on the lights you used for the cargo area? I particularly like the one in the lift gate. Where did you tap into for your source? Did you have to go all of the way to the headliner or is there a place to tap in further down?

The headlights look good too. I kind of like the black lens holders on the Mini D2S. What ballast did you use? I was actually able to fit the ballast inside the housing instead of the box that you built underneath. I'm assuming the relay in the picture was your power relay to take the load off of the stock wiring.
