Reverse light sucks

Recommended Posts

Hi please can someone shed some light, does anyone know a way to make the reverse light on an Impreza hatch brighter or if another can be fitted? Problem I'm having is it sucks, I would be better off hanging out the window with a torch it lights that little and can't see a thing behind me.  

Hoping there's a brighter replacement out there or I'll have to fit some extra lights to the body work

 

any help or ideas are appreciated. Thanks

lol, I find that the reversing lights on most of the cars I've had before have been junk, but the one on my Impreza is the best I've had in ages - really bright and can see the kerb when I'm trying to reverse alongside it.

Think you have the newer shape model than me though? so maybe Subaru let their reverse light brightness slip with the new design...

I suppose fitting an LED is the only sensible option...

Yeah he has the hatch version we have the new age and I agree on the newage they are great even with the tint on my windows I can see well.
