I have seen some on the mentioned website that fit our standard lights. Just clicked on the "Fits following models".
Yup, that's my thought. I'm probably just going to bite the bullet and try the dims

I don't know what is more impressive...the Birkin or the biltong ! ;D
It was chaos. One of my dads business partners went hunting and shot and Eland. Bravely, my dad bought half of the meat. 250kg of it arrived one day. When we ran out of space in the freezers, we had to hang the rest. A double garage strung up with wors and biltong, space about 10cm apart.

We eventually had to give it away in bundles because it was too dry and we honestly got sick of eating it  ;D

At the same time there was a massive amplifier being built, which weighed about 60kg once finished. That's the shell of it to the right of the nose of the Birkin

Hi Kean,

If you want someone to do your light seals for you, pop me a pm.
Thanks Garrsie, will send a PM soon

Hi fuz.
Just make sure that your replacement bulbs fit HID headlights. Many of them are just for Halogen.
Hi jbh

The stock clusters are currently for halogen bulbs, but I'll need to check.

Someone on AVForums.co.za suggested I get in contact with Violet Electronics and see if they can put xenon projectors into the headlight cluster. Thoughts?

Cheers,
Kean

Hi all

My 07 Forester 2.5X is suffering the usual problem with the headlights - moisture. I understand there is a way to split off the lens and clean out the inside, but i'm also quite concerned about the headlights themselves.

To be honest, they are atrocious.

About 6 months ago i "upgraded" to the Phillips Crystal Vision for both dims and brights, and all it managed to do was change the light from yellow to white.

In my searchings i came across these:

Brights:  https://www.carid.com/2007-subaru-forester-led-lights/lumen-led-headlight-conversion-kit-175100336.html
Dims:     https://www.carid.com/2007-subaru-forester-led-lights/lumen-led-headlight-conversion-kit-88857015.html

It looks to be a pretty straight forward conversion, just needing some sidecutters, crimping tool, screwdriver and some patience.

If i can stomach the cost, i was also contemplating new housings:

Any opinions? I see a bunch of people here have gone to HID bulbs, rather than LED.

Thanks,
Kean
