The grilles are made by Zunsport exclusively (at the moment) for Subaru UK.

I'm sure it shouldn't be too hard to mock one up right? or does it look complicated?

Relatively straight forward.

3 attached pegs fit into corresponding holes drilled into the lower bumper and three attached springy clips locate into holes that already exist in the underside of the top face of the opening.

I'm interested in painting mine black, but would like to get an extra set before I do so. Anybody found a place other than the dealer that can get them? I'm surprised that SubaruGenuineParts.com does not have them...

If u don't like them just use goo-off and some Q-tips and it'll clean up good as new... that's what I did at least to re-paint it

I'm trying to "pop the panel off" like you guys said, but is there a trick to getting the bottom of the panel off? It looks like it's screwed in...

Just another pop clip but you have to take the side of the side skirt off where the panel clips into. Just the 2 side skirt clips underneath

I have a black 2011 WRX. What do you guys think a good color scheme for that part would be? I was originally thinking to just paint the WRX part red but im not %100. Let me know what you think!!

Paint just the WRX part red, leave the silver alone. And take pictures so I can know how it'll look on mine

Yeah, I'm totally painting the stripes when I paint the "WRX" logo. I'm thinking red letters and stripes and black-out the rest. Thanks for the youtube link!

I think he meant the stripes on the badge. I'm painting my stripes too when I paint mine. I want to colour match the outside and black or red the letters/stripes.
