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

Parts and Accessories For Sale / Roof rack cross bar kit (Forester 2nd gen)
« Last post by Troye on April 23, 2018, 09:27:34 AM »
Cross bar kit for sale (for mounting roof box, bike carrier etc) Part Number: E361ESA000

This was used on a second generation Subaru Forester (model year running from 2002 to 2008).
Not sure if it will fit on later year models, best to check with Subaru
It was only used once or twice to fit bike racks, and therefore in mint, almost new condition, in original box.
I'm in Sandton, Jhb area (best to collect, but I can send via courier as well)

Looking for R1500.

Troye
