These probably already exist but...

1. A film or something to soften the rear lights
2. A source for color matched peices to replace the Chrome strip in the rear.

You might be on to something there. I have seen some pretty nice stuff done with Black Chrome. If you combine that with some darkened taillights, might be cool.

:eek: 0 difference on painted vs unpainted :mad:
what a rip-off.
the paint is pretty expensive... you're paying for it painted and clear coated and all of that

I would just buy the unpainted and take it to the dealer to be done (or a body shop that has subaru paints)

I'm really interested in this option... has anyone gone to price out what it might cost to have the Dealer paint the part and replace the chrome piece? I'm sure it'll make up for the $150 difference in painted v unpainted, but I'd drop the coin to have it done up right.

Hey guys, great news for those of you fretting about getting your off-colours painted... I just contacted Subaru with a question about having it pre-painted in other colours. They've updated the website and now offer the following colours:

Midnight Blue Pearl
Dark Gray Metallic :D
WR Blue
Lightning Red
Spark Silver Metallic
Obsidian Black Pearl
Aspen White
Satin White Pearl

That just made my decision a ton easier.

$192? Ouch!!! Does that include free over night shipping?

I paid $60 to have mine color matched and it looks 100% factory.
