    How many of you guys have a rippled hood scoop?

    Since 08 I've noticed that a lot of the wrxs we get from the factory have this rippled/warped effect in the painted plastic inner portion of the hood scoop. I recently had a customer who's scoop was severely warped and we are of course replacing it under warranty but they all seem to have it to varying degrees. Does your car have it and if so how bad?

    Ah I left my phone home today but I'll snap one and post it later. Or if Steve K. is reading this he just picked his up and it has it maybe he can post a pic.

    It's hard to get a picture of, but I will do my best. My car is the one he's talking about.
