Time to upgrade your WRX or STi headlamps! These C-Light LED modules are circuit boards that fit right behind the factory diffusing reflector, illuminating in an extremely bright white, as well as a brilliant amber. Don't be fooled by other options on the market: these LEDs have been designed from the ground-up, and manufactured in St. Louis, Missouri, to be absolutely the brightest lights physically possible. They are compatible with all factory headlamps: WRX Base/Premium as well as WRX Limited and STi.

The custom-designed LED modules replace the factory bulb or single LED, illuminating with a much higher intensity. With our proprietary high-density "HDLED" technology, these modules are populated with over 500 LED chips, which are then coated by a diffusing gel, resulting in a perfectly uniform light when turned on. When it's off, the diffusing gel hides the chips, resulting in a clean, OEM appearance.

Manufactured in USA, the modules light in a pure 6000K white color, not a cool blue like cheaper products on the market. And because they use modern high-power amber chips, rather than traditional LEDs, the amber is even brighter than the white!

To power the modules efficiently, your order includes two custom-designed drivers, which feature transient voltage suppression, reverse protection, and a switching driver for extremely high reliability over time. And here's what really makes this product shine over the competition: with an embedded microcontroller, the drivers utilize multi-stage PWM dimming, to allow for a half-brightness white, for use at night (parking lights), as well as a full-power white, for use as DRL during the day. Finally, the amber is run at even higher power, making the turn signal easily visible in broad daylight!

SPECIFICATIONS
Total LEDs: 524 (262 per side)
Real LED Output Power: 13 watts Amber, 10 watts DRL, 5 watts parking (per side)
Inputs: Plug-and-play connector for ground and parking light. T-taps for DRL and turn signal.
Integrated Protection: Full waterproofing and shockproofing, transient suppression, overvoltage protection, thermal shutdown, reverse input protection.

 

Wiring instructions are included with your order. You will need to use the included T-tap connectors to connect the drivers to ground, parking signal, and turn signal on each side. Another wire is included for DRL connection. You can tap this into your DRLs to have the C-Light come on as a DRL alongside your factory DRL bulb.

DRL Harness: If you wish, you can add this harness to your order. Fully plug-and-play, this harness will disable your factory DRL, and power the C-Lights instead. Your high beam will still work as normal.

Professional installation is recommended for this product, as the headlights must be opened. However, these lamps are substantially easier than most to work with, so we do recommend watching the installation process yourself, by viewing our video.

All Diode Dynamics products are backed by a 3-year replacement warranty.

  1. Looks Great! Review by Ofir

    Installed the lights past weekend and they look great and was the upgrade I wanted for my lights. Love the switchback! Very nice and bright. Took it to a professional installer because wasn't comfortable installing those on my own, but still well worth it. Definitely recommend this upgrade! (Posted on 9/28/16)

  2. Worth buying. Looks amazing. Review by 2ezGG

    Quality

    It took a little longer to install than I had imagined, mostly because the headlights are not easy to get apart without a heat gun (which I bought just in case). Aside from that, the wiring is simple. You may want to use some of the extra sealant to plug the holes where the old light used to be since there is no rubber plug included with this.

  4. Worth the wait Review by Ryan

    Quality

    It took quite a while for the C-light switchbacks and the associated DRL harness to arrive, but they are totally worth waiting for. The light quality is great and looks even better as a DRL with the harness installed. Installation was rather time-consuming but not difficult. Packaging and instructions were nice.

    The amber turn signals are extremely bright, so they took a while to win me over. Also, the drivers and wiring associated with the LEDs result in a very slight amount of interference with FM radio, which is only noticeable when trying to connect to HD radio stations. These are only minor gripes, though. (Posted on 7/11/16)

  6. Nice modern upgrade Review by E

    Quality
    Price

    I installed these to work with my LED fog lights as my DRL's, while maintaining the turn signal, hazard, and nighttime dimming setting.

    They are not as bright as my LED fog lights, so I personally would not have used these as my sole DRL. However, with the Fogs also, the four lights at the four corners makes a nice modern look and is very visible.

    Turn and hazard yellow are super bright. If you are considering opening your headlights for an HID refit, add this to your cart, they are well worth it! (Posted on 6/24/16)

    Bought this product over others because of the quality and it didn't disappoint. Installed in a 15 wrx limited with oem led lights. It looks great. The amber lights are really bright. Both white and amber produce very crisp light. Install itself is very straightforward. (Posted on 5/25/16)

    This is what the STI C-light should have looked like from the factory. My favorite part of this product is the yellow for the turn signal so bright and looks awesome! Wasn't happy about having to cut the wires and re-splice them to get them to fit through the STI headlight housing but the end result was worth it. (Posted on 5/21/16)

    I chose Diode Dynamics' C-Lights because they met every check on my list:

    - Price point
    - Pure white appearance
    - Simple wiring/setup
    - Quality of boards, drivers and wiring
    - Dual brightness settings
    - Extremely bright Turn Signal function (added safety)
    - Great warranty and customer support

    I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

    Thanks DD! (Posted on 4/13/16)

  11. Amazing Product Review by Eric

    Quality

    I have to say, the quality is by far the best! Amazing Look, Amazing Product, works great, Looks great, it is really a great setup. I ordered on Pre-order in November, communication on this product was not great, but I chalk i to the fact that they were FLOOOODED with people waiting on it, so it wasn't that they didn't reply so much as you get to a point of trying to focus on the product and get it out, so people can be taken care of. Overall I still will use DD for my lighting options, because of their products and the typical customer service being great. Only way to get better, is to know that something didn't work as planned, they are well aware that pre orders are just a nightmare! (Posted on 4/11/16)

  12. Stunning!! Review by Kevin

    Quality

    These C-lights make my base model WRX look better than the limited version! Why did Subaru not use a product like this?

    Everything about this product screams quality. The fully sealed LED drivers, the braided cable sleeving, the rigid board, and those LEDs. All top notch.

    My car looks stunning now.

    Was it worth the cost for these? 110%. Best visual mod I've done to my car yet.

    I pre-ordered so the DRL harness hasn't arrive yet for me. I can only imagine how much brighter they get, and how cool they'll look as DRLs. (Posted on 3/30/16)

  13. Get these over the Morimotos! Review by PCHOne
    Price

    Quality

    I chose DD's C-light over Morimoto becuasee they clearly explained the LEDS used on this product is 5500K white. The competing product tends to be higher and bluish. I was amazed by the nice build quality (nice packaging, good coating of the LED and PCB, and a good solid and potted external driver. The separate LEDs for switchback amber C-light signal was just a bonus; they are bright as heck!

    I'm glad that this product is covered by their 3 year warranty! (Posted on 3/24/16)
