The SPort mesh grille is not broken, reading the estimate to repair the grill is the same price as buying new, however if I have them fix the grille it will have better than oem paint, and it will also match exact vs not exact with buying a new already painted sport mesh.. So I think I have decided to have the sport grille fixed.. It was talked about earlier that the SPT accessory booklet from Subaru states the sport mesh grille fits 08-12 so I was under the impression they did. However they do not.
I have been looking at a lot of pics of the front ends of the 08vs12 and I do like the blacked housing headlights but it may be cool to put the 12s in and really throw people off. White is an extremely clean color and I think the chrome housing does clean the look up a bit.
