I also think that I had this idea before Chicken did. 🐸☕️
Maybe? I had the idea poking around since probably around last December when she was getting ready to buy the Sorento. Knowing that I would, at some point, end up with a Crosstrek I might as well make it dual capable

Then when I got home yesterday, I had the next "mod" waiting for me. I order the "carbon fiber" Cupeez for the door handle area. No doubt this area gets beat up. I decided to give em a try. I got the CF because 1)the black matched the black/white theme of the car, and 2) it matches the interior CF trim.

Install was SUPER easy. Just cleaned the area and made sure it was all dry. Took a hairdryer on high-heat setting for 20-30 seconds to just make them a bit more malleable, then stuck em in!

So today I debadged the trunk. Everything was chrome and no bueno. Removed everything on the left side of the trunk, and replaced the "Crosstrek" on the right side. Ive seen a lot of ppl plasti-dip them black, but when an OEM part exists... why not use it!!? The red 2017 limited edition came standard with black badging. So I found the part number and got it ordered up.

SO MUCH better in my opinion!



And if anyone would like one, this is the part number

Over the weekend mr sybir gave me a new car present . When I bought the STi from him, he gave me an OG white Lathe Werks shift **** for that car.

Well turns out he had the exact same one, but in black! So he gave it to me. I pulled the white one from the STi and tested it in the XT. I think the black works better and stuck with that. But it is nice to know I can swap between them whenever!
