@CSFiend, I'm in the Crystal/New Hope area.



@jasonojordan, I love them. I buffed the OEM's every spring, but was never fully satisfied with the results. I had JM put in stainless steel brake lines last week, and I figured, as long as she was there, why not have them swap out the headlights & fogs. They also disabled the day time running lights. Having those **** headlights on during the day really does a number on the car. The 05-09 Outbacks are notorious for headlights that get super hot, eat through bulbs, and scorch the housing. Mine got so hot last summer, that both wiring harnesses melted, and I had to put in new ones. I was going through Sylvania Ultralights so fast that O'Reilly wouldn't cover them under warranty anymore.

Here's a link to the ones that I bought. A little spendy, but in my opinion, well worth it. Plus I don't have to mess around with trying to blackout the OEM's myself.

I put a pair of these Depo assemblies on my car and I love them! It's remarkable the light projection pattern they throw! And, they look sexy too!

Two questions:

Do you like the hood deflector and does it rub anywhere?

Where did you get the bumper placard - nice!

The #1 thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on a set of those Depo headlight is that I've heard the beam pattern from the projectors is pretty bad compared to the stock projectors. $300 is a lot for a worse performing housing.

So are you saying these project light better than the old stock ones?

Personally, I think they project better than stock. They certainly project better than my 13 year old, weather battered stock ones did. $300 is a lot of $ for new headlights, however, new OEM headlights would cost about the same. I was getting sick of buffing mine every spring. Blacking out OEM headlights yourself is always an option, but it's very time consuming, and I couldn't afford to be without a vehicle while doing a DIY headlight project. I also replaced the fog lights with new ones, so between the new headlights and the new fogs, I've got more than enough light projection for the driving that I do.
