Question Cdn Bumper vs. US Bumper

I know they are different because of different crash standards between the countries. My question was whether the grill and radiator openings were the same on the Cdn and US bumper. The reason I ask is that there is an interesting grill and radiator cover being sold by ImprezedRS and he has a US model. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Keenan

I thought it was bigger in the US bumper?

I say this because the US bumper does not have that black bar in he middle, it's all opened.

I am getting mine installed today, so I can go compare, but tulit is familia wth the Impreza, so take his word before mine.

Cheers
Jan

That black bar is just a holder for a front license plate. It doesn;t restrict flow all that much, but it does block the opening if you were going to get a grillcraft style grill cover.

Since the addon grill goes behind the license plate holder, it shouldn't matter.

The shape of the opening even looks to be the same....

Worse case scenario, you may need to do a little trimming, but i highly doubt it. It looks like his grills overlap on all sides anyways, and just get tucked behind the bumper...
