Changed my Day light bulbs to white LED.

Had to switch cables as the polarity was reverse on the bulbs.

Just replaced both headlights on the stanza yesterday with a clean set off a junker in pick n pull haha. Nice to not be driving around with busted/cracked headlights anymore.

Got finished with my switchblade remote mod for my 2012 WRX. Got frustrated with the programming so I took it to Stevens Creek and $69.99 labor later , synced with the car. No more carrying the teardrop remote and the key.

Let's see....

$60 to send my spare key in plus cost of the shell and labor
$35 to laser cut the blade by a local keysmith ( No dealership in the Bay Area Subaru has this service , I called )
$70 for the Legacy remote key
$70 for dealership to program

I plan on doing this next week. Any lock smith can cut our keys? I thought only the dealers could do that. Mind sharing which one you used to get the key cut?

As long as the keysmith has the laser cut machine , I went to Schwenk Lock & Safe Co - Santa Clara, CA , recommended by one of the Stevens Creek Subaru employee and it's also right behind the dealership. The machine didn't quite cut right the first time so I went back and had the guy re-cut it and it worked. He was fussy about it when I tried to show him why it didn't work ...

I also used the spare instead of the valet key as it doesn't lock the glove compartment. Good luck.
