I put in some HIDs for my 89 subaru justy and i cant tell you enough how much i love them. I installed them about a year ago and everytime i get into my car at night i still giggle at the fact my headlights are brighter then most newer cars. It gives you a nice feeling to be in an older model type car with nice head lights. It only took about 20 mins to out mine in but i had to do a little sanding and had to put my ballast in a good spot. besides that the simplest thing yet.
this should be a link to my twitter with a picture of my justy
How is the light dispersion? I'm guessing you dont have a projector and its just the HID's in the stock housing. Have you gotten anybody flashing their lights at your for having too bright of headlights? Im seriously considering doing this as its night alot in the winters of alaska and good visibility is needed. I already swapped out the stock lower turn signals for two 6 inch LED fog light bars and moved the turn signals to the outer daytime running light housings on the fenders. I recommend that.

People do tend to flash there lights at me because mine are to bright. Or when im driving and most of the time down hill i can light up the insides of there cars and you can see them adjusting there mirrors to deflect the light somewhere else, so there bright for sure. I do feel like a dick but i kinda injoy that... i know it sounds bad but its funny to be a little car with bright lights. yeah no projectors just the stock mounts. those led lights are honestly really neat, will be doing that in my near future.
I'm wanting to do a similar thing, I've got the HID's and Projectors.But i'm waiting to find a spare set of '89+ headlights so I can do a proper HID conversion with projectors, Mainly want a spare set of headlights to do this on since I have to make new clear lenses. I love the idea of HID's they sure are bright! But I can't stand them in reflector headlights they just blind other drivers and you end up missing out on potentially more light on the road since the reflectors weren't designed for the hid bulbs. Good idea on the upgrade though, hid's and led fogs would be great!

justytrudeau: FWD means you don’t have to worry about any problems that can come up with the AWD system. AWD is clutch in snowier climates, but the pre 90’s models have carbeuraters instead of being fuel injected. Carbs can cause some issues in the winter time.

justytrudeau: Anyone put LED's in their instrumental panel? I have to remove the whole dash to get to 'em, figured it'd put off having to do it again by a few years.

Justy1200cc: bredmirror, if you do it you would need the suzuki transmission. I think it's searchable on the forum for more details

bredmirror: Thats what Im planning to do. However, if the engine and the transmission won't fit then Im just gonna upgrade the stock engine and get a tubo kit for it.

justytrudeau: Just replaced my headlights with LED's as well as all my dashboard instrument cluster. None of them work, and now my taillights have gone out too. Likely wiring issue, eh?
