Luckily it just looks like a bent plate. Hopefully there isn't any paint or body damage.

Someone else had mentioned at a car meet people were sticking gum in BoV Ports.

Kids in particular today lack respect of other people's property and unfortunately often times they don't get caught in the act so they can experience the repercussions of their actions.

I've been contemplating a better security system for the above reasons.

I've stuck soda cups in exhausts before, but always on cars who's owners I know and it's all in good fun. Never with gum or anything to make it stick there though

Go pro security? Lol

That sucks I'm glad my neighbor is a K9 cop, his dogs pen is about 15 feet from my car and he barks at anything he doesn't know. But traveling we are all susceptible to vandalism.

The only thing I find on my car in the lovely Irvine (CA) area are Subaru "club" (SCIC etc) business cards...

Looks like they got pissed when they couldn't get the allen head screws out. Out of everything to mess with/steal from your car, they choose an $80 accessory? People are dumb.

I think it might have been the skunk. Either that or they also kicked it. I don't know. But I took it off and bent it back today. Looks pretty good now.

I saw a black hatch yesterday with your exact setup. The RPF1's on black looks awesome. For a second, I thought it might have been you but it looked really clean so I figured it probably wasn't...

Reminds me of that episode of Knight Rider where they introduce KITT's evil twin, KARR.

For the record, KITT defeated his evil twin. Twice.

Not even gonna lie, I'm totally debating losing the hood scoop as well. I like how it makes the car look a little wider (to me at least) and there's no need for it with a front mount. Plus i have a sedan, so im curious how it would look with the sti spoiler I have.

It will actually increase flow through the FMIC because it will reduce pressure in the engine bay. And it looks cool!

Yes, but would the scoop bring in colder air for the intake and overall making the engine bay cooler when driving?

That would depend on the intake you are running, cobb and aem would not apply I believe being that they have air boxes that pull air from outside of the engine bay.

If your intake pulls from the engine bay then you need a new intake.
