When me and my wife recently purchased a used 2010 Forester XT , I told her that installing a sport mesh grille would be a must. The stock chrome grille just look too ''grandpa'' to me. The SH headlights are so beautiful that putting a sport grille makes them look more defined.
I tried ordered a genuine Subaru for the perfect Paprika Red Pearl color match and quality of product. Unfortunately the product is discontinued.
The downside of the Paprika Red Pearl color is that not much color are well fit with it, actually only Black... So I decided to go with a carbon fiber finish.

After another painful night, the grille is installed. I am unsure if the match with Paprika & Black Carbon looks nice has a grille or just clash. I know I just look at it for a couple minutes and only close-up in the garage, no long-distance view.

Now I would like to get your honest opinion, do you like it? Would you drive that as your daily?
Please note the car isn't clean, we had snow again today :(

Nice work. If it were mine I would tint the headlights to make it come together. Subtle 3m/tint. You only lose about 5% and won’t notice.

I love mods such as these

Agreed. But it'd be better with Subi emblem in the middle instead of what you got on, but it's really whether you like it. :)
Thanks for input! Honestly I like the ''F'' emblem, which is the jdm version front emblem. It is genuine with Subaru part #... Also I like the chrome/pink scheme because my wife drive the car daily. My black forester has the subaru emblem, I like it that way, maybe I just like to do little different with this one :D
