Few reasons... the 02-07 appears designed for factory WRX sideskirts and with my slightly thicker OEM bodykit sideskirts I had difficulty lining up the bolts myself. Might have fit with some work, but didn't bolt up directly. Haven't heard of anyone having fitment issues with factory WRX sideskirts. Also, the 08+ is polyurethane, and the 02-07 version I have is flat-painted fiberglass (easier to vinyl-wrap urethane). HT also make a 02-07 polyurethane but it's two pieces. Finally, I thought the 08+ fits closer to the OEM bodykit sideskirts on my car, whereas the 02-07 hung down a little bit. I feel like the 02-07 would have looked better on my own car if I had a more aggressive front lip.
