The short answer is no. We leave our vehicles in the shop quite frequently and especially during the winter months when we aren't able to film track events. We have not had an issue starting our vehicles because of the tail lights. If you leave your vehicle in storage all winter, you should already disconnect your battery to save it from dying (or put it on a trickle charger).
2015+ WRX / WRX STI TR Style Tail Lamps (USDM)
Headlights and tail lights play a huge role in the overall look of the vehicle. While the WRX / STI have some great styling, the door was still left open for a more aggressive aftermarket solution. Original design cues from the headlamps were taken and incorporated into the design. These are factory plug and play units for the 2015+ VA platform*. They are wired for US spec vehicles.
Color options complement those offered for the F1 Style Rear Fog Light.
SubiSpeed began this project in May of 2014. At this time the tail light design and production was just a concept. The first sample was ready around 12 months later. From here the tools to create these lamps were tuned even further until a production ready sample was complete days before Jan 1st 2016.
This product incorporates a lot of ideas and the efforts of many. We hope you enjoy your vehicle and the opportunity you have to customize it.
Should you upgrade your WRX tail lights?
Solid or Sequential Turn Signal
The SubiSpeed tail light has two options for turn signal operation. It can behave like a standard tail light with simple on / off lighting. You can also utilize the built in sequential turn signals. A switch built into the wiring allows a quick change from one mode to the other.
Tail As Turn Compatible
A popular question among our customers was if the tail as turn module was compatible (if you don't know what the tail as turn module is, please see the related parts links at the bottom). The answer is a solid YES. You can skip the amber turn signals and use the brake light as a turn signal. Everyone has their preferences and this allows for even greater customization!
SubiSpeed Installation Video
With the main harness being plug and play, install is easy and painless. Plan on re-using the factory bolts that hold your current tail lights! Includes hyperblink modules that also have a plug and play connector. These mount outside of the lamp to prevent added heat and condensation build up within the lamp.
- Smoked - Smoked lens with matte black reflector
- Clear lens with red - Clear lens with cherry red reflector
- Red lens with chrome - Red Lens with chrome reflector. The red lens tints everything behind it like the F1 fog light. Chrome reflectors used for maximum light output. Bottom strip is clear. OPTIONAL overlays available (see related products below).
- Pair of Tail Lights pre wired for USDM Vehicles
- Hyperblink modules
Our video will help your through the installation process. However, just so that you know, everything is plug and play except for 1 wire. There is a power wire that must be run through the trunk and along the sides in order to provide power for the sequential turn signals. An add a fuse is included for easy installation. You will use the add a fuse in the driver's side fuse box inside the cabin (by your left knee when seated). We chose the 15A F. Fog fuse on the bottom row, 3rd from the left.
NOTE: These are now plug and play. You do not have to run a wire into the fuse box for proper operation. They do come with load resistors in the box to prevent hyperblinking. These connect outside of the tail light to help prevent heat and condensation inside of the lamp.

I just received my order in under 5 days and wow I love them! I’m not too mechanically inclined, and these taillights only took me 15 minutes to install. The longest part is removing the back cover inside of the trunk. Thanks subispeed for the wonderful product!
Install only took a couple of minutes and it improved the look of the car by a great amount. All around great product.
Great looking lights, but....
So I purchased these lights (V2 plug and play) some time ago. They look absolutely FANTASTIC. No, hassle installation, pretty straight forward. With the V2, they just plug up to the old connection, no additional wiring required for the sequential turn signal mode! Just a flick of a switch on the back, and its good to go!
I was very happy with my purchase, that is, until 6 months later the passenger side blinker just stopped working altogether. Everything else on the light worked just fine, but the blinker stopped working. I had to email, send a video, take a picture of the QR code, send them my order number, and then send the info back to Subispeed. Then I was told it would be about 3 months to get a replacement!!!
The replacement finally came, worked as it should. Shortly thereafter, the DRIVERS SIDE blinker stopped working. Went through the same process, except I was shipped a new tail light within the week.
At the time of writing this, my passenger side blinker stopped working. AGAIN. On the original replacement! And this time im noticing that part of the running light is starting to dim. Now I have to go through the entire process all over again.
These look great, but for the price, I would expect LEDs to last a lot longer than 6 months before the board took a crap. Really disappointing.
They look great and only took me about an hour to install. First time I took my trunk apart, I'm sure it would take others with more experience even less time! Transformed the way I view the rear of my vehicle now, thanks SubiSpeed :)
I have ordered a lot of pieces from here and I even tried to install the C bars into my original taillights. But, I failed at that these were absolutely easier to install. If you’re not good with automotive electronic systems it is definitely worth the mine. Easy instal, great look, completely satisfied with the look worth every dollar.
Simple, quick installation. Fitment is the same as OEM. Definitely the way to go if you're looking for aftermarket tail lights.
Makes the car look so much more aggressive. Fitment and packaging was perfect and all LEDs work! Definitely worth the money.
Straight forward install and with the V2s you don't need to route the wire, which saves a bunch of hassle. Very satisfied.
This product is a definite buy. Looks great and is super easy to install. Matter of fact, I had a more difficult time installing the rivets on the trunk liner than i did installing this product. Super satisfied!
I love the look these tail lights give the car. Very clean yet aggressive styling.
Installation was super easy, like another review stated, about 30 minutes to complete. Got the V2 style so everything was plug and play.
WORTH THE WAIT
Since these taillights were backordered, it took a couple of months for them to arrive.
Much to my surprise, the instructions for this updated design (V2) stated that no additional wiring is required. I installed the lights in approximately 30 minutes with no stress or aggravation.
They function as expected and compliment the car's design.
Stellar product, super straightforward install!
Purchased in January of '17 and received the V2 version of the smoked dark tails, which were entirely plug and play and did not require an additional power wire.
Product came in exceptional packaging with everything required and fitted nicely. Removing the old taillights was extremely straightforward using Subispeed's video as a guide, as was installing the new ones.
In summary, they look absolutely incredible, work great, were easy to install, and worth the price! Very happy with another great product from Subispeed.
