Ok so I've been noticing some SH's come with a nice symmetrical AWD badge just under the Subaru badge on the left side. I'm guessing this is one of the only exterior differences between the 09's and 10's but haven't confirmed yet. It seems they moved the PZEV badge to the right side for the '10s and added this AWD badge. I want this badge so if anyone could confirm for me that the '10s come with it on all models I may stop by my parts guy and get a price, if anyone had a part number that would be even better.

Is this badge in addition to or instead of the sticker on the rear glass under the wiper?

May be cool if the price is OK, at least make it more visible. But having it one side sort of messes up the "symmetrical" part :)

The badge is the difference between the MY09 and 10. The MY10 does not have the sticker under the wiper arm on the rear glass.

Not if it's an XT......... ; ).

jkoppee.....the badge is the same on all models from what I found. I was gonna get it but it was, IMHO, too expensive for a piece of chrome colored plastic. I think the dealer wanted $30, but I am not sure. PM me.

wow for $30 I wouldn't do it I was thinking if it was around $5 - $10 I might consider it. My parts guy is really good at getting me deals or random free little stuff so I'll check in with him. They just moved to a new bigger location around the corner so I might stop in and see him anyway.

Did you find the badges yet? I just took them off my '10. The adhesive didnt stay on very well but they are re-usable with some double sided tape. I'll throw em in an envelope and send them your way if you want them.

Strange, my '10 has both the sticker under the rear wiper arm and the symmetrical AWD badge on the left side under 'Subaru'...the PZEV badge is on the right side under 'Forester'.

I will take them if they are up for grabs.

I have a 2010 and DO have the AWD badge that is being mentioned. I have de-badged my car and would not mind giving it away for the price of shipping. PM if you are interested.

I've actually debadged my car except for the Subaru and Forester and I've been liking the cleaner look, may actually be taking off the remaining stickers as well but haven't decided yet.

If anyone has the AWD badge up for grabs, I would happily pay the shipping cost. I could send PayPal $$.

I took my SymmetricalAWD badge off of my11 and ordered the sticker for my window. So much cleaner in my opinion. If someone wants my badge I will find them in my garage for a price...$10 bucks
