Question Differential Cover Options R160

I am trying to think of ways that will make the wagon look a little cooler from the rear, since this is the angle most other drivers see I have heard rumors of a JDM STI rear diff cover that was finned and sounded really cool. The fluid capacity did not change, but I thought it would be a really great look for the rear. Does anybody now how to get one or what the cost is? Also will it fit a R160? I have also seen the SYMS one that has larger fluid capacity, but I would rather have STI showing from the rear. Thank you in advance...

Thanks for the bump, yeah I thought about them. Wonder how much we are talking? Anybody else done this or am I forging new territory? I did some searching but found zip. I also like the Prodrive protector that www.hot-subaru.com has:



But seeing as how I don't have a single Prodrive part on the car I would like to do something else. Why doesn't COBB make one of these, then I could do it

Sounds like it. Okay maybe I will just try to get some general information then. Is the pumpkin the same size on the R160 and R180? Basically if I find a diff cover for the STI will it fit on the WRX?

I never found a finned cover for the R160. Many for the R180.
