Ok, so I'm interested in the 2010-2013 Subaru Outback Pocket Inserts.

1) Does this fit 2014's? The space appears to be identical in my '14 as it as in my '12.

2) Have you addressed the concerns in the 2-star review of this product?

Quote:
This item does not fit snug. If you have an outback, you know that this pocket has sloping edges. The insert is not small enough to fit in the flat part of the pocket so there is about 1/8" between the bottom of the pocket and this acrylic insert. Also, the insert is not smooth on top. The Subaru symbol is etched into the acrylic and not very smooth, which makes it a magnet for dust and dirt. I immediately returned the item the day I received it. (Posted on March 10, 2014)



2nd & Current OB: '14 2.5 Limited SAP w/ Eyesight in Carbide Gray. Mods: 19mm STI RSB, Fumoto Valve, LED interior lights, Hella Supertones, plasti-dipped wheels, front grille, side emblems, rear badges, seat back protectors, side cargo nets. Soon: body side moldings.

1st: '12 Premium 2.5i AWP Black

1. We have not updated the listing to include the 2014 Outback. It may fit, but we haven't confirmed it, that's why it hasn't been added to the site yet.

2. The pieces are custom fit to each applicable location for your vehicle. We have sold dozens of them with no issues and the fitment can be seen in the picture. They come with a 30-day hassle free warranty if you are not pleased with the fitment

Let us know if you have any other questions: (314) 205-3033

Interesting... I bought some LEDs a few years ago but wound up returning or reverting all of them due to color variation. I measured a few (very crudely) with a cine colorimeter I had on hand, and my eyes weren't fooling me- color was all over the map.

Looking forward to the day when you've got your inventory measured and binned for matching lots.

The lab coat is a nice touch.
