Not here, and certainly not when intended to be inflammatory.

I give it a little more weight when there are legalities involved, such as country of manufacture;  however, my original (flaked) emblem does not have the country of origin on it:  lots of numbers, but no country.  I don't have the bag the replacement came in to see if it had any more information.

I suppose its possible that Subaru started making a replacement in Japan, but I wouldn't trust what it says on the bag. Prime example, here is another photo of a 9-2x part that was obviously made in japan, and you can see the remnants of the made in USA printed and slapped on it.

Hard to tell but it looks like "MADE IN" and "usa" are part of two different stickers.

It's from a movie called "Scanners."  The bad guys could make your head explode if they concentrated hard enough.  Kind of like some of the threads here.

Re: Aero HOOD!!!!

Even if you could easily find an Aero hood, why would you want to make your car LOOK faster than it actually IS?

Sounds like a recipe for shame and embarrassment.

It's true; hood scoops are a measure of speed and power.

Re: Aero HOOD!!!!

Although this is all very entertaining, for the sake of rayray actually buying a hood, I'm going to lend some assistance.  First place you should look is the obvious place:  http://www.thesaabsite.com/92X/92Xbodyparts.htm
The part number is 32007521.  If you don't want to spend that kind of money, then stop looking for an Aero hood.  It's true that there are others who actually need the cheaper used ones.


VF39 turbo, Pink 565cc fuel injectors, NKG 1 step colder spark plugs, STi top mount, Flying performance 3-port ebcs, Helix catted downpipe, MassivUSA catback, Sti catless uppipe, Walbro 255 fuel pump, Grimmspeed AOS, Maddad boost gauge, Kartboy short shifter / bushings, H6 rear brake upgrade, Cobb Open Source tune, and more to come

Re: Aero HOOD!!!!

Another option would be swap the front end for cheaper subaru parts, 06-07 I think looks saab-like and cleaner then the previous years.
