    I wanted that hood when I had an 06. Looks like the diffuser is missing out of the scope though. The other carbon bits are nice, although missing fog lights look a little off. Can't make out the exhaust at those angles.

    Are you asking how it "looks" or the pricing etc? It's a pretty car for sure. You really need to see it in person though. Look under the hood and find out to what extent it is or may have been modified.

    Good luck!

    well i dont want to sit and read throught the dealer page, but is it stock or close to? Have you driven it? Have you looked at in person? Not a bad price at all, but there is a lot you have to also look at besides price...

    no its a ways away from my house.. but i have talked to the lady.. the car fax is clean. no accidents, but i was still a little skeptical because of the exterrior mods. if i were to look at it i would take it to a mechanic. but idk how much hassle this car would be to take the exterrior back to stock

    Finding a stocker hood swap should be cake if that's your plan. The fog covers would be cheap dealer or used parts. As for taking it to a mechanic, you could probably see any major changes, e.g. a non-oem TMIC or missing heat shield. Look for the tell tale signs of tool marks. They may use degreaser but that can't hide those. Make sure the the BC solenoid looks like the stocker or hasn't been zip tied back to its mounting plate.

    yeah a stock hood is the plan, and maybe stock springs or spt if i dont like the ride. hopefully the exhaust and engine parts are stock as well. i am very new with subarus so there will be a lot of parts that i would not have a clue about. could a mechanic give me a good list of everything that is not stock?

    alright that sounds easy enough. there is probably a thread somewhere about how to put into test mode.. and also... where would the best place be for a hood?

    You plug the two green wire under the dash together and turn the key on and listen for clicking.

    Either here or nasioc, or craigslist for used, but idk for new
