www.SubaruOnlineParts.com is a sponser of this site. Good prices with reasonable shipping. There are others if you search a bit. Wheel arches are spendy no matter where you get them.

Speaking only for myself....and I think I agree with Sackatomatoes on this......I don't think this is an accessory which you'll find cheap. I get the impression (perhaps mistaken) it's relatively popular, and wouldn't think too many sources would therefore be motivated to sell them at a below-market price.

FWIW, my 2012 Limited had them factory-installed as part of the $772 Popular Package #2 which also included wheel locks, floor mats, the rear bumper cover, and splash guards. As a retail sale proposition, I think that's a pretty good price when you factor in the time/cost to install the moldings, bumper cover, and splash guards. However, I'm not sure I'd characterize it as a screaming bargain.

Anyway, I honestly wouldn't like the looks of my own OB anywhere near as much without these moldings; and likely would have had them installed as an accessory had this particular unit not come so equipped from the factory.

I got them for $260 and change awhile back when another joint was running a discount. Some of them are running the holiday sales now. So, keep an eye out.

Make sure you get the right year. The 2013's are different from earlier OB's wrt the wheel arch kit.

Little over $ 300 seems to be the "going" price... I don't think you find them anywhere cheaper than that!

The best way is to get it preinstalled. When I was shopping for my car, average cost for Wheel Arch was U$200. I found one plus leather knob shifter for U$250 extra only compared to the one I finally bought because I wanted 110V. I am kicking myself in the behind now.

Many people still don't trust buying stuff on e-bay... because, typically, you have to pay PayPal immediately. If you don't get, what exactly you wanted, even though there is a dispute procedure in place there, it take months and months (from my experience) to have disputes resolved. Its easier, in my opinion, to dispute things with banks than with e-aby and/or PayPal.
