Ok... I gotta know. first time I saw this was on a RX sedan in the city I live near (Adelaide.) Then I saw pics of a wagon on this forum with them. And just the other day I came across this page http://www.cardomain.com/ride/242915

Was this a standard thing on some of the models? Which models were these? Or was it a optional feature? Whats the deal with them?

EA82 models with the GL designation came with the composite headlamps as well as most options. The less expensive DL model came with quad headlamps, cheaper interior finish, and no tach I believe.

Looks like Mick beat me to it (I'm too wordy). But if you look at the expanded pic of the rear of the wagon on the link you posted, you'll see the subaru DL badging.

DLs, the base model, have the quad sealed beams. The single lenses are considered better because they're not sealed beams, and you don't have four bulbs to replace, only two.

I personally prefer the quads since conversions are less expensive (i.e. actually available....I know of no aftermarket replacement for the composite headlamps) and throw much better light than the composites.

I guess Australia didn't get any DL's and this guy put the DL lights on his RX to be different. Interesting. Weird how MY DL's had single headlights and GL's had quad, and then they reversed that.. :-\:rolleyes:
