It's the plastic insert in the hood scoop im talking about, it doesn't shake all the time, just when the wind hits it at odd angles. I'm 6'1" so I can see the top lip of the insert flapping lol.
hahaha Oh okay! Yeah, I'm barely 5' 8" and my seat is all the way down so I'll never notice the insert vibration.
Yeah, the AC compressor has always been loud on Subarus in my experience, just not sure what else to compare it to, though.
