Default 2012 Impreza 2.0 Modification Questions

Hey guys! I just purchased my first Subaru and its, as the title states, a 2012 Impreza. Its a base 5 door limited model. (Didn't like the look of the wheels on the sport model; no matter how many times i saw it, it never really grew on me). I kind of regret not getting the sport because of the side skirts/rocker panel spoilers that were standard on the sport models only. So my questions are as follows:
1) Is there a way to source sport model side skirts for the 2012 Imprezas?
2) Will any other models side skirts fit?(I understand the wheel base has been increased by an inch on the newer models but that doesn't necessarily mean the rocker panel length would change)
3) I noticed the 09 WRX hatches have the same styled side skirt and i am wondering if anyone could tell me the dimensions of the side skirts as well as whether or not the side skirts would be able to fit.

It is a new model and hasn't been out for too long so I really am not expecting much information, but whatever will help guide me in the right path and reach my goal is much appreciated. I don't really like the idea of buying splash guards to install as I greatly prefer the side skirts over the guards. However, if rallyarmor makes mudflaps for direct bolting onto the newer imprezas, i will really consider the option.

Thanks in advanced!

1) you can order them from the dealership...however, they require drilling you car to attach...not worth it

2) No

3) Dunno

Thanks for the update. Does anyone have any Rally armor mudflaps for the new Impreza? Im trying to get measurements of the brackets as well as the flaps them selves. Being cheap here with the flaps but i am also trying to experiment with other options. If anyone could help, i would greatly appreciate it. I wish i could order hardware separately from rally armor but they do not allow that.

ikea cutting boards were popular in the past.

Also the XV Crosstrek fender flares and side skirts fit, but also, require drilling.
