I'm not so sure a hood scoop would be a great idea, although it would look better. (And I'd probably want one) but...
Reason being (and I'm no fluid mechanics engineer, although I do fraternize with a bunch of aero engineers quite regularly), the stock setup has a forced input from what I would assume to be a high pressure zone in the front of the vehicle. A scoop however, would be drawing from significantly lower pressure boundary layer type area. I may be totally off base, but I guess I just don't buy that Subaru would go away from years of what has essentially become a hallmark of their design for just aesthetic purposes alone.
I'm sure there's someone on here to let me know how far off, I am - but it seems to make sense to me. Maybe after a few more stays at a Holiday Inn Express, I'd know for sure...
