So. These carbon fiber aftermarket hoods fit. Awesome. But. Do the stock ones from here in the US fit? I'd rather spend a few more dollars for a functional one in Black. Swappable?

That's what thought. The carbon fiber one is a bit spendy for me.

Dear Mr. Eric,

We are very thankful to receive your email.

We specialized in manufacturing car tuning and racing body kits in the material of carbon fiber, fiberglass and PU rim. OEM orders and customized production are acceptable.

The unit price of Subaru XV 2012 carbon fiber hood is 248.00USD. The shipping cost of one piece of hood to USA by DHL is 552.00USD by DHL.

Hey guys! Sharing more photos of the hood.

I'm very happy with it - gotten some nice compliments from complete strangers when parking. Also, this dude driving another white XV drove by and gave me this weirdly pleasant thumbs up sign...

Under bright sunlight, the weave pattern really stands out. Very purdy, I think. Of course, to each his own. The lady I ordered this from was very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended!

The hood doesn't have any soundproofing - the underside is completely bare. However, the hood itself, although lightweight, is fairly thick, so I haven't noticed any increase in engine noise after the swap.

May I know where did you get this hood?
Thanks

No link, I asked my Subaru service guy today. I asked him about installing a WRX bonnet for my XV, and he just came out and said that unlike the rest of the body which we know is steel, ...the hood is aluminium. I don't think he was fooling around with me. Be good if someone who can tell the difference, can verify this.
Stick a magnet on it. Easiest way I know how to tell.

Hi XV forums!

I feel like an outsider, but this is the only place I could find anything close to what I am looking for.
Does anyone know if this carbon hood will replace the hood of a 2015 Impreza Hatchback Sport? As far as I can tell from looking at
the Subaru parts lists, both the 2015 Impreza and Crosstrek XV both come with the same hood, I think. Both have the
OEM number of "57229FJ0009P". I really want a scoop, even if its not functional, but it doesn't look like anyone makes one for my
little Impreza.

Also can you paint carbon fiber?

Sorry for necrobumping a 3 year old thread, but you guys are the only ones talking about what I am looking for. At least you used to, haha!

Get on SubaruPartsWarehouse, look up part numbers for both cars. If they're matching numbers, order your hood because it fits.

I would like to jump on this bandwagon. I like look for sure. Any updates on getting one in the US?
I know the Impreza bumper, hood, and fenders fit the crosstrek. at least I’ve seen it.
this was in CA, US. I’ve also seen carbon fiber hoods online sold out of the US for the Impreza so you should be good if your still in the market for it haha.
