This wouldn't fit the sedan? The grills for the hatch and sedan are different?

Catback exhaust, not grill.

Thanks. Yes, AKA Home Depot lip.
I still want the OEM front lip under spoiler like THIS, but not for THAT price... plus I don't know how many time I parked too close to the curb/parking lot stopper.

Why not just get an ebay lip like this? Seems to be pretty much the same for a fraction of the price.

This. Quality may not be top notch but after painting/clear coating mine, I think it looks pretty good for how much I paid

Got my oil tested over at Blackstone Labs. Very quick turn around from them. I sent my sample oil in Saturday and received my report today via email. Looks like my engine is in great condition minus my viscosity running slightly thin.

I have been using Subarus OEM 5w30 since new. I just had the dealership put in Subarus OEM Synthetic 5w30 and will send another sample once my next change comes up. I have had my car serviced at the same dealership since I bought it new.

For record my car is at roughly 45,500 miles. You can see the tested oil was an interval of 4,103 miles.

Problem is I suck at painting... & if I take it to body shop for painting, it'd probably end up the same cost as I get the OEM Subaru one painted.

Whats the point in making the lip perfect? It's going to get scratched up anyways....

I just don't see buying a $200+ lip painted, thats going to get scuffed anyways..

Anyways, the best tip i can give, spray very light coats from a distance (about 12") and let it "mist" in a sense over the lip. Try to avoid windy days too. Personally, my beginners fail at painting was spraying to close and expecting to do less coats. From personal experience, know that you don't have to finish the paint job that day, take your time, and More paint at once doesn't mean you can reduce the amount of coats it will need.

I would say look at some springs too, but I am not knowledgable with springs, so maybe someone else will chime in.
