Here it is the first day I got my Forester in Magnetite Gray Metallic with Option Package 2.

Nice and clean and Stock! Nothing fancy, just a lowly lame base model for $25K Out the Door!

Then I got something in the mail and I did this:

530421


530422

Nice, but I usually see people wanting to remove all the lame badges and emblems on most cars LOL.

I did the same thing with mine. Why not? They were free. And rather cute, in my opinion.
Shortly after we got the car, we took a road trip through the Dakotas and Montana. Taking a scenic drive through Theodore Roosevelt National Park, we stopped at a visitor center. I parked next to an Outback. A couple walking back to their Outback noticed my badges and he commented, "Look honey, he's got even more badges than we do."
I win. 馃槑

Ya a clean look is cool too, but how often do you get to put free stuff on your ride?? :)

It is always cool to get noticed especially in our boring Subarus. :)

Ya I wanted to put more badges, I actaully had like 12 total, but left off a few so they wouldn't run on forever. I put the rainbow one on there, since it was one of the few badges to actaully have color, and I like Rainbows.

Too much WFH and China Virus, so did this little mod, only $10 (for the set)! :)

OEM Subaru USB Charging Point 2 Ports 2.1 AMPS H671SSJ003 Installation / Pics / Tips and Tricks

Please reference this guide:

NOTE: I am not going every little step. Just what I ran across and with pictures. And will try to note the tricky/hard parts.

Taking off the rear piece is easy. Just use a trim tool or something like it and it comes right off.

531784

I put in upside down the first time, but it is easy to fix. :)

531785

Just plug in the little connector.

531786

I only used one zip tie and the wire patch holder that came included in the kit.

At first I thought it was either one of these two pictured, but it is actually up above that at the button of the cigarette lighter (12V) that you see when you open your rear console cubby (or whatever it is called).

I was considering taking out the whole thing so I could see what I was doing, at least I figured out how to pop off my shift knob. But I was messing with it and I was feeling uncomfortable, so I wanted to try the feel and no see approach some more. The tricky picture part is coming.

531793

Remember that this pic is something you CANNOT see, so going by feel, I thought I needed to plug it into the part on the right, not realizing the connectors that look like a T is what I actually needed. Again going by feel and not being able to see crap makes a difference here.

The finished product, tested and works great, also made sure the cigarette lighter connector inside the storage cubby still works too! Hope this helps anyone that needs to do this install in the future. Thanks for looking!
