My new Sportback and a question

Noob here. Just picked up a '04 Ralliart Sportback and I am really enjoying her! Has anyone changed the lighting to an all amber setup to match the cluster?

Thanks! I picked it up at Suburban in Vernon. But on the Carfax, it was listed at a dealer in Wallingford too.

HMm... Whats with Canadian cars with extra long rear bumpers compared to the rest of the world! The Echo / Yaris had the same deal ... a longer bumper, with extra impact bars at the rear !~ Nowhere else have i seen bumpers like this! Interesting . Is it Auto/Manual?

I've converted every light in my interior, except for my aftermarket headunit, to red in order to match the cluster. Check out www.lightrikz.com, he'll set you up for whatever color you want to change to.

Your Sportback looks sweet. It;s great to see anither one around the board.

The all the North Amerian Sportbacks are the same except for smog as far as I know.

Your going to have to go to the JDM rear bumper to get it shorter. There is also a couple random body kits with rear bumpers that fit the wagon. But none of them are in the US. Pakfifier(SP) and ROAR do.

I've been wanting to do the interior light thing also. Just havn't had the time with a 4 month old in the house.

It's been almost 10 years since I got rid of my Sportback (2007) and I see it for sale out in MI. Looks like it's in great shape!

That's a nice Sportback for sale, same color as mine. I've never seen the cargo cover for these. Wonder if they are available anywhere?
