I put this on my 2015 XV Crosstrek, it fit no problem. You really need to be careful with the little plastic bits, I dropped an important one into my engine block never to be seen again. I replaced it with a drywall anchor I cut in half. I'm also not super keen on the visible screw heads visible on the outside but I think the car looks better with it on.

Had no options when ordering this item for my 2013 Subaru Impreza....other than price. EVERY auto, and specifically Subaru accessory retailers, incl. official Subaru/dealer website, sell the same thing (that I could find anyway). Only difference was a few dollars and of course shipping...and as we all know, that's one of the many reasons we shop at Amazon. Side note: Amazon ROCKS!!!!
Personal opinion...This item is an afterthought, not like the other deflectors I have purchased/installed. Recently installed one on my wife's new Chevy Silverado, you can tell that there was an effort by Chevy to make the vehicle a good fit for accessories. NOT with Subaru!!! It is obvious from the design, instructions, and make-shift installation equipment, that this was a poorly thought out "oops, we have a market but did not plan for it". When you are finished installing this item, there will be SIX visible screw heads on the outside of the deflector. On all other vehicles I have installed deflectors on, i.e. Chevy, Toyota, Dodge, all screws/bolts are internal and out of view). Yes, I installed it correctly! In my opinion, this is NOT a manufacturer's item!
Unfortunately I believe if you want a deflector for your Subaru, I think you will have to buy this item.
In all fairness, except for the screw heads and tape on my paint job (hate that!),it looks pretty good. I like the white Subaru lettering! I just want you to know what you are buying.
Also, after ordering the item, all of my message traffic from Amazon/retailer, i.e. shipping updates, narrated the correct item but ALWAYS had a photo of a roof rack. I was pleasantly surprised to receive the deflector and NOT a roof rack.

Installed on my 2015 Crosstrek XV with zero issues. Very sleek and stylish, adds a great accent to your hood and protects that leading edge from rocks. I took mine and plasti-dipped it for that matte look prior to mounting. It came with all the hardware and unlike what many have said here in the past, the mounting hardware is all black. No (external) silver parts of any kind.

Installation was not difficult. Propped the hood open with a shoebox, started with the two hard-mounting brackets, then lined up the included 3M tape once those were in place. Took the deflector off, mounted all the remaining brackets on the 3M tape, then working from the center outwards screwed everything down. Once in place, it is extremely solidly attached and I do not see carwashes nor highway wind having even the slightest effect on it. I believe the 3M tape will remove easily and harm-free if you decide to take it off, so don't worry about your paint. I chose to use the extra 3M patches to put down beneath the rubber half-balls just in case they vibrated or otherwise annoyed my paint, but I wouldn't have blinked at just not installing them either.

Definitely recommend the purchase if you have an XV and want your hood to not be destroyed.

As stated in most of the other reviews, this looks okay and will probably work alright but the plastic screw clips are garbage and an accident waiting to happen.

The instructions are barely helpful. You could probably figure it out by just looking in the amount of time it takes to decipher the simplistic instructions.

As stated by some others, I will probably be looking for metal replacements for the cheap plastic screw insert/spreaders.

Don't over tighten.

Hey, this is all the choice we have right now and does look pretty good once on. I didn't use the washers on the top black screws. they are meant to keep the screws from scratching the plastic, but they don't anyway and I felt a firmer grip without them.

1/1/15 UPDATE: Added one star, loving it. Absolutely no issues. Not loose, doesn't whistle, looks as good as the day I put it on. Very happy with this purchase and despite the cheap looking hardware, it works great. It's been through summer and now sub-zero blizzards, quite a few high pressure car washes and shows no signs of damage or wear.

The XV's hood was already taking a bit of a beating in the six months before we installed the Hood Protector. It bears reading the instructions carefully, there are many parts and need to be in the right locations. Saved a lot of money purchasing and installing myself. Our dealer wanted $30 dollars more for the Hood Protector than what I paid, plus the installation charge. Installation took about 45 minutes. A dealer would surely charge for at least an hour.

The Hood Protector lines up perfectly to the hood. Leave screws loose until all are threaded into the fasteners. There is a little bit of flexing and bending involved to get all the screws in. Be careful, the mount points will be very easy to cross thread or strip out with over tightening. I used a cordless screw driver with a very delicate clutch at the lowest setting, finishing by hand.

Along with function, I think the protector adds a little flair to the XV's appearance. I would have preferred an applied vinyl tape protector like the one I installed on my wife's 9-5 wagon years ago. It had no breakable parts and did not affect the slipstream as much as this one will. This device could easily be vandalized by the random hooligan, but living in the NH backwoods, that risk should not be very high.
