Default BC Bumpers?

I've searched around but can't for the life of me find aftermarket or jdm bumpers for BC's. Any idea where i can find some good ones? I don't know specifically which one i want but some different options would be nice. I just hate the black molding in the stock ones. Yuck.

as farr as i know, the JDM bumpers are pretty much the same. if you have a non-turbo model, the bumpers for the turbo models do look slightly different, though i'm not sure it would be worth your time to seek them out.

i've seen pics of BCs and BFs with GC Impreza bumpers, and i know that the GC Impreza bumpers will also fit on BD/BG Legacies. that might be worth looking into.

I don't see how though because the GC bumper is flat all the way around where as the legacy bolts to the front of the fender so its raised up a little at the front of the fender. But i've seen a few rare models with bumpers other than the turbo and non turbo versions.









not sure i like that particular one but u get the idea

yeah that's the one i was thinking about. if i remember correctly, that body kit was originally for a GC Impreza, but i do think it had to be modified to fit the BF body. i think it looks sweet personally.

Nothing a bit of flexi-fiberglass work can't fix.

Have you tried an autoparts distributor?
