What is the best way to install these lights on a 1st generation legacy?
Anyone have these installed with any pictures?

I hope I'm not wasting your time with this shot of my install of Hella FF75?

No new holes needed, just use the bolts holding the bumper on ;)

That looks clean, might go this way.
Are those head light washers on your bumper also?

Yes. That's an EDM car so no amber markers - they're in the corner lights.

Yes, those are washers. Great stuff in salty winter!

The headlight has beam, and if you look closely you'll see a small vertical divsion behind which the white side marker lights hide.
The outer lamp, a separate unit, is normally off and flashes when the indicator stalk tells it to.

Worth a thousand words:

i actually cheated and got a light bar, but i would either mount them in front of the grill, like mine are or off of the hood......

I ferried a friends car to town to the Subie dealer, and then back after work. Outback wagon, so I got to experience the driving lights. THAT'S IT!, the next step on the deBrightonization of the 2000 is llights in the fascia nostrils. I couldn't believe how much better the lighting was.
