@jkeener71 You are talking about Body Side Molding. Door Edge Guard protects the trailing edge of door when opening door into/against something. I asked the same thing about five years ago on the Outback forum and got very little interest. I still think it would look good with the right colors.

Fixed the Title.

That is a shame.

If I had that color car, and I wanted to choose a different colored body side moulding, I'd go with black. It would also match the color of the wheel-well protectors, if you go that route.

But, I don't know what your aim is, like how far out you want to go with different colors ¯\(ツ)

You could also wrap it in a custom design/color. Like chameleon, glow in the dark, pez dispenser, etc.
Pez huh, I might have to bust out the GIMP! :)

I don't like it.. maybe matte? I'm no designer though. The red with the grey with those wheels doesn't really speak to me.

Just so we are clear, and there is no confusion
#1. I used GIMP to modify the original pic
#2. That is Joe's car, I am John, and I have a 2020, and I have the 17" alloys that come on the base model
#3. I don't actually have trim yet, hence why I am brainstorming the color.
#4. I am sure I will be getting a lot of...

I took me FOREVER to find an MGM with side body moldings, btw is it molding or mouldings???
And on top of that to find one in a good resolution (large).

MGM with MGM
Note: Original Pic

531898

MGM with Sport model Red or as close as I can get to it
Note: Gimp (modified) pic and of course the Red is just a red that I am using, and I am no Gimp expert.

Kinda lowers the quality standards of all of our cars...😉

Maybe you’d consider curb feelers and fake side vents too?

Then again, I’m no fan of the stripe on the Sport Forester either. Maybe I’m old...
