The first one I made was the i with purple and black. I bought the badge off ebay. The paint was so easy to get off but I ruined the plastic with goof off it's dull unless I put wax on it. I've sanded it and used the plastx stuff but whatev I like the red one more

I just finished the orig today with red and silver... I noticed the plastic didn't get hazy/bubbly with the OEM badge.

I decided to take a shot at this after reading this thread. My '03 badge was yellow, and didn't match anything. The paint was a royal PIA to get off and I'm moderately pleased with the results. I decided to go Gold and Blue to match the car. Also painted my fogs yellow while I was at it. What do you think?

last pics pretty cool. I like that you can see the STi on the intercooler. Nice job with the badge, and that front plate delete. Im thinking about doing this to my badge. But I was also trying to decide if I should get the "i" badge. I don't know why I like it, but its kind of cool. Im liking this red/black scheme though. I have an OBP 2011 too. Ordering the super tones soon. But I was considering painting them black, not sure I'm feeling the stand out horn look.

Thanks!! Yea I originally wanted to powder coat the horns black too but decided to keep them re's to go with my black on black/ red scheme of the car. I think they look tough either way. Also like the "I" badge too. I'm thinking about getting it later on but had time and wanted to see what this would like on the car.

^If yall can find an "i" badge that will actually fit anything newer than 08, I'd love to hear where from.

Coups have sworn I saw an '11 wrx wrb that had an "I" badge. I honestly haven't looked that hard for them. Just thought I could find one since they're everywhere online. Are they made for 08+ ?

Japan Parts has them. If you want to shell out the insane money they want for them.

I don't think so. I think the newest they go is 04-05ish. I do know that the 08+ badges are a good bit bigger.

EDIT: Just saw kwils post. Don't know how much they are on there, but I can guarantee they are priced a LOT higher than they are worth.
EDIT 2: Just checked japan parts and I'm not finding the "i" emblem for the 08+

Ahh, you're right. I remember looking there before doing my own Cherry Blossom Red badge, they have that color, but it's not the i-badge...

^Saw those on there. They want like $50 +shipping for those cherry blossom ones. They better be made of gold for that price. Got my "just in case" replacement emblem for like $20 shipped on ebay.

How does the front subaru badge come off of a 2011? I tried all sorts of things just shy of prying it off with a screwdriver? Does the outer chrome ring stay on the car and jsut the emblem pop off?

I used a heat gun a low setting and moved it back and forth over the badge for a few minutes. It heats up the adhesive on the back to stretch out a bit. Be careful with the heat gun and keep it a good distance from the badge as to not melt it. I used a thin putty knife and shimmied it behind the chrome ring and slowly added force to start separating the glue. The whole piece (chrome ring and front piece) will come off. Patience is the key as to not scratch the car.

I used paint thinner but it was a little strong. It came off well bit you have to be careful because it'll eat that acrylic plastic likes it cool. Thinner is cheap and worked but don't let it soak or anything. It takes time but use a toothpick and q-tips. Good luck and hope it comes out good.

Well I attempted this on my badge, and the chemicals ended up burning away some of the plastic and ruining it. Epic fail.
