Talking GR JDM OEM Underpanels.....

Has anyone seen this before.....



They are OEM JDM Underpanels...

I found out that the FT-86 guys have the same side underpanel part number 56410E(RH) 56410F(LH). http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18322. Wondering they are the same number cause they fit on both GR and FT-86.....

I am kinda interested in getting some. JapanParts.com only listed the 56410C which appears to be the Transmission Under Panel. Anyone have any ideas on how to obtain the side panels?

The front one *appears* to be one that comes from the factory. I don't think the transmission and the one behind that do though. Would be interested in those two.

Well.... I contacted JapanParts and asked if they can get the Side Underbody Panels (56410E(RH) 56410F(LH)) and they sent me this link:

http://www.japanparts.com/db/parts_d...1&SEARCH_page=


Looks like its a universal part and will fit a variety of Subaru models.

So pricing looks like
Transmission cover w/ bolts - $83.16CAD
LH side cover - $65.88CAD
RH side cover - $65.88CAD

Just not sure if the side covers come with hardware... emailing JapanParts again.

I am VERY interested in this. Between the mag cloride used on the roads here in the winter and all the gravel/dirt roads I'm constantly on, I'd love to have som extra protection for the underbody against the elements. And if these are just $132 and include the hardware, count me in. I'll even volunteer as the guinea pig to buy/test them out.

^yes please! I am more interested in aerodynamics effects of it.... increase fuel milage and downforce. There is some good numbers in that FT-86 forum post that I have in the OP.

^ not sure... It looks like no one has the parts yet. I would guess it would be similar to the Engine Underbody Panel.

mm. then if its not better material why choose to buy it? ok i can guess that something tore off but if that whole underbody plastic broke off and you had to replace it for god knows why, this would make sense.

i thought it was a better upgrade from subaru's cheap plastic.

^ USDM cars do not have any of the underbody panels except the engine one. The JDM/EDM cars have all the underbody panels.

So its really an upgrade from nothing to something.

I picked up a pair of underbody panels from a XV Crosstrek and put them on my '12 WRX. All the bolt/push-pin locations line up except there is no hole for the very front location. Along the side skirts I just tucked the panel between the body and the skirts. Just another option.

^ the side underbody panels must be a universal part for must subarus then. Can you get us some pics along with price, where you got them, and part number? Thanks eco-mod.

On a side note I have been talking to JapanParts.com and they are working on a complete kit for us side panels and the transmission cover and all hardware.

It would be better if we could get these state-side rather than ship them from Japan....

I live in Connecticut and would LOVE these to protect against all that winter road **** destroying the underbody....but I have to think...how could these panels be safe covering the exhaust? especially the cat....you would think it would melt.

^they are not cover any exhaust parts, just the body.

Here is reference pic of the side panels on a FT-86. Supposedly they are the same ones used on the GR.

Yeah, living in salty/dusty/muddy state (Maine), I'd sure invest some cash in having this to get more protection to underside!! Plastic or not, it'll protect more than the non-existing elements I have right now!

Can someone please post the XV parts numbers or a Subaru parts website which shows them. None of the Subaru sites I've found reference these panels. I want to install them on my 2012 WRX.

Got JapanParts to make us a kit for the LH and RH Side Underbody Panels along with all necessary bolts and clips.

http://www.japanparts.com/db/partsli...EY=107-320-001

The part info is saying it is a complete set for LH and RH but its asking to you to order LH and RH. I think there is an error for the ordering options, It should be a kit. Emailing JapanParts again to correct it.

and here is the Transmission Underbody panel with all necessary bolts and clips here.
http://www.japanparts.com/db/partsli...EY=317-068-001

Who wants to be the test mule to order and install these? Ill let you guys know once they fixed the ordering options for the side panels.

I'm all for ordering them, I'd love some extra protection under the car.
