Looks like the euro-style marquee plate in black. I have it in black and silver. You can find it on subarugenuineparts.com.

Not feeding a parking meter can't get someone killed. I know someone who was killed on his bike (a harley roadking, driving the speed limit) by some asshat driving like that crossing lanes in a corner on the dragon. Might as well talk about street racing as well and post pics of that too and say "dont feed the meter".

Nope, that's the "EURO" style font plate. It's 304 stainless steel. It's genuine Subaru. The thing is, it mounts right to your bumper, through some "pilot dimples" on the inside of the two license plate holes. I love it. I am going to take off the grill emblem. It will look cleaner.

Sure is...in 265/35/18

Wheels look great. I was wondering if I was going to like the color combo or not but I really do dig it.

I would be interested to see how your 275's measure up to these 265's. They are huge.

Your car looks so rally and the mud flaps complete that look. I think that's what I like about it the most. The only thing that would make it better would be larger stickers from sponsors or something. haha Otherwise your car is awesome how it sits!

What's your wheel/tire setup, Jive? I want 275's at some point without having to pull the fenders, and yours looks great.

I'm loving the gloss black vinyl.
After I've seen a few cars done like that, I've decided to go with that versus the carbon wrap. I feel it looks a lot cleaner. Plus I love the way it looks on my mom's white Venza haha.

As far as I know, running 275's will require some type of roll and possibly pull depending on your suspension. 265 is really the only size you could possibly get away with it without any fender modifications.

As soon as I realized the wisdom of your statement, I drove my car off a cliff. Heaven forbid I drive a 2012 with those headlights.

Seriously, the amount of attention that people pay to headlights is stupid. Who cares? If you don't like it, buy another car if it is that big of a mistake - I'm sure there are people that prefer the look that will buy it instead.

I think it looks fine. I think the 2011 headlights look fine.

Thank god those headlights went off the cliff too then, one less for me to see

I did buy another car, the 2011

What do you want me to say? That they look ok in order to make you feel better?
Then they look ok LMAO.
There are styling features that appeal to some and don't, for one, I like that they paint matched the rear silver on the trunk (which is why I paint matched it), and I equally (if not more) dislike what they did with the headlights. Most people will agree too, the car looks worse with more chrome.

Don't get all offended that I don't like your headlights, what does my opinion mean anyway...

I think if the chrome headlights would have been on the 2011 first, then they moved to a blacked out headlight, it would have been a completely different story.

Everyone would have already been used to the chrome by the time the black ones came out, and there would be less initial hate on the chromes when first released because there's nothing to compare them to.

The chrome headlights actually remind me a lot of a hawkeye headlight for some reason.
