    No, lol. It was my cross bars or roof rails or w/e the hell they're called. The dealer didn't want to install them so they just left the box inside the car.

    lol its crooked i just placed it on there i have to touch up the black paint a little bit because some of the red got on the black where i didnt want it so ill just fix that then make sure its on straight when i do i final attachment, im debating painting the other badges red as well but i dont think that will look good like the IMPREZA WRX on the back and the SUBARU ALL WHEELDRIVE bs idk let me know what you think

    Don't do the back badges. The front is fine because it's 'floating.' The back ones will just look odd. Just de-badge the trunk/hatch.

    +1 please don't do the rear badges red

    Could you take pics of the rear though? What's this new 2010 AWD tag?

    I left just "WRX" on the rear of my 09. Subaru and Impreza were removed.

    I may try something red on my WRX badge on the front like you did. Also need to get the sport grill...

    red caliper paint from advance autoparks a little thicker than regular just to keep it from chipping as easily

    came out good

    you can do the same to the star badge- little elbow grease removing the blue paint (the starts stay silver) and then re-spray it red

    I've done that to several badges and have been happy w/ the results

    I would love to do this. But can't figure out how to! Every DIY I've found seems like it's been missing a step...

    heat up the badge and carefully pry it out of the housing- it's affixed w/ double sided tape (pretty damn good tape I might add )

    once off the real work begins there may be a better solvent, but I use nail polish remover and rub and then rub some more- it takes a while to get the oe paint off

    once all the paint is removed (it will be clear-sans the silver stars)- spray paint w/ the color you want- a couple of thin coats works best in my experience

    let it dry for a day and then get some new double sided tape- done

    here's a i-badge I did in black

    has anyone tried to backlight the subaru grill badge with led's? Having not had one apart I'm not sure this is even possible, but would be pretty cool.

    I think I saw an old diy (close to 10 years ago!) where someone had done that- try peeking over at scoobymods
