Any thoughts on engine bay dress up parts? Fender shrouds, radiator shroud, etc. and do any others fit the newer crosstrek that aren’t made for them? Like Impreza or wrx stuff? I’m not a fan of the colors offered by grimmspeed for the trails line.

I personally don't dress up my engines because, "Weight reduction bro!" but, if you just don't like the color why not paint them?

Our platform isn't in high demand for such after market items. Most of what I know about a lot of the car scene is they just want your money so they come up with ways to bait and hook you.

By all means though, buy what makes you happy I suppose. I hear catch cans dress up a engine nicely, if you can afford the added weight, I for one cannot.

2nd gen crosstreks are pretty limited on what can be done with their engine bays. I have a Engine Bay Caps from Precision CNC Performance (but they're no longer around). I'm sure most engine caps for FA/FB engine should fit. I believe Grimspeed, Billetworkz, and Mele Design have engine bay set caps for crosstreks tho

I’ve got caps incoming from billetworkz. I might wind up ordering the grimmspeed trails stuff and re powder coating it.

This is exactly where I was hoping this thread would go. I also just noticed Perrin makes an oil filter cover for wrx/Sti/brz. Any reason this wouldn’t fit other models? I didn’t check the oil filter sizes.
I guess the oil filter cover only fits the black filter that the brz/wrx use. How different is it from the blue Subaru filter?

I only have an AOS, and I've found it's nice to have as I drive the car a bit harder than normal. And AOS's have been useful to help my other Subarus (though they are older with more mile but helped with oil burning from wear and tear).

The oil filter cover, assuming you mean the fabric-like covers, won't fit. Based on Fram's Measurements of the filters, the brz/wrx filters are 3.080" height and 3.020" diameter, while the crosstrek filters are 3.469" height and 2.688" diameter. I've looked into this too sadly found they don't fit =(

Perrin has an aluminum one. But with those measurements I’m pretty sure it won’t fit.
