Default 2015 WRX Carbon Fiber Goodies?

Hey everyone,

I am not sure if this is the right spot for this question, so please move if need be.

I recently got a 15 WRX in the Dark Grey color. I got a lot car, so I didn't have any say on it's factory add ons. This car came with the SPT Carbon Fiber trunk trim, and I must say that against the Dark grey paint it look amazing
I know that Subaru/SPT makes the CF B-Pillar trim for the 12-14, but nothing listed for the 15 WRX yet. In pictures they really look the same, but wanted to know if anyone has tried to install the old 12-14 trim, or if not if Subaru has or will be releasing 2015 B Pillar trim???

Also on that note, I did some googling and couldn't find anything, but does anyone know of any company who makes a Carbon Fiber hood bonnet for the 15 yet?

I realize that adding CF isn't a power mod, so to many a waste of money, but I love the subtle yet custom look it adds to a car.

Thanks!

Maybe I am dumb, but I went to both manufacturers websites and I could not locate a CF hood bonnet for the 2015... Don't want someone else to do all the legwork, but I honestly could not find what I am describing...

I have, but don't really want to go that way. Over time the CF wrap shows its age/peels/bubbles etc. I have had it on a car before, and I have had CF parts, and for a 2015 car I would like the look of the CF parts.

I suppose a hood and a bonnet could technically be referred to as the same thing. I may be wrong, but I have always been under the assumption that the bonnet is hood scoop insert (at least that is what it was called by vendors when I had my 13 WRX). I have found full CF hoods, but I want just a CF bonnet insert.

Ok I see where you're coming from.

What you're looking for is just the scoop? No, there's nothing of the sort yet. People have successfully wrapped it though.

Bonnet = hood, the Brits generally call it a bonnet, just like they call a trunk the boot...

I was thinking about this but I wasn't sure if the carbon fiber would be noticeable on that paint color. I couldn't find a pic of this on a DGM '15. Post one please?

To be clear, this is also what I was looking for in reference to my earlier post. Thanks if you can help us out.

It's funny, I didn't bother spending the money on any style/visual upgrades when I ordered the car because I was convinced I didn't care but now I've been trying to decide all of the things I want to do to it since I've had it...

OP if I were you I would check out the 2015 WRX mods page and read through everything. There is just over 230 pages on there and most of them are different pictures and ideas for the interior and exterior, some have CF and things like that. You can also PM the guys that have already done it or ask them about how they did it on the forum, it has been very helpful with everything in one area so far.
