Impreza WRX mature diffuser on 02-03 bugeye?

I was wondering if the mature style diffuser(like forcewerkz) has been installed on a bugeye. Curious cuz this is what I found on mature's website:
http://mature.shop-pro.jp/?pid=6525980

If it has, can you pleeeeeeeease post pics of it and if it was straight bolt on or had to do some modifications. Thanks.

It would be a straight swap. 02-07 rear is all the same except for a changed in 04 I believe with a extra round part added to taillights

the pictures shows are on a bugeye rear end already...

you can do it all the way through 07... Differences in bumpers are minimal, you could swap for some 04-05 tails, bumper and then run it for sure.

no major mods needed.

You're doing something wrong with install then because they are made to fit.

i even removed the exhaust cuz i thought it was in the way. but, it wasn't. the only part that sit flush was in the middle where the license plate goes. the rest had about a three inch gap all around. no wonder why i only found one picture of it installed on a bugeye... sorry, i'm not directing this anger at you. i'm just venting my frustration that i was mislead

That is extremely odd since 02-07 is all the same but a trim piece on trunk and taillight.

02-03 wrx bugeye have different rear bumper shape than the 04-07 wrx rear bumpers

Maybe you got a Mature diffuser made for the 04+ rear bumpers?
We carry the 04-07 Wrx Mature style diffuser, but not for 02-03 wrx.

I suppose you can mod your 02-03 rear bumper to fit the 04+ wrx Mature diffuser.
Please let us know if you get it to work
