Hello everyone I am new to the forum and crosstreks (newly purchased) and am happy I was able to find a forum to give me some ideas on to how to give my xv some style looking to go for a storm trooper look. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I just ordered some emblem overlays with a black background and white stars but have a few ideas in the till....

Welcome to the club!
My first thought would be to either black out the stock grille or install the sport version and then put some white Hella Supertones or any other horn of your choice behind it.
I have also seen people plasti dip the optional door molding to break up the plainness of the doors.
And also depending on what direction you want to head and how much money you want to spend you can either powder coat or plasti dip the rims to a solid black or white. Personally I wouldn't go white but I've seen an XV out there with them and it didn't look half bad.

Thank you! I was actually looking into the sports grill and getting the door moldings in black instead of going with the matching paint color I've just been kinda hesitant on the door moldings just because I haven't seen any with the black on white and I'm not sure if it would be too much I'm going to have to look around and see if I find someone who has me and I'm going to have to look into the hella supertones. Thanks for the suggestions Tomicle!!!

No problem! I have loved my sports grille ever since I got it and am going to be ordering some super tones next week. The website subimods has them going for $5 off right now with a rainbow of color options. Definitely worth checking out!

Have not named a vehicle in a LONG time. My son (who has a 2010 red Impreza) was jealous that I got my 2015 Crosstrek Limited. When he asked what color I got and I told him the White, he said "a Storm Trooper, huh". So she is Stormie; have ordered a Storm Trooper window decal off Amazon that need to apply. Also her name so can put it under the white Storm Trooper decal making it look like a sport kid decal...

She is beautiful! Mine is named Lucille after BB king's guitars. Also I love Lucille Ball. As we have the same vehicle, except the moonroof which I have, you may inspire me to make modifications. Keep me posted.

I saw a white XV today in Illinois with Colorado tags. It was all covered in a brownish grey mud. Looked great parked next to my just washed and waxed ice silver metallic. A true study in contrasts.
