Default Put Sti In Snow Bank :(

I live in the Pacific Northwest and we have had record snowfall this year. Bottom line I need a new hood, front bumper, sti fog covers, cusco lip and a new skid plate (under gaurd thing).

Where can I find a good metal skid plate to replace that black plastic one?
Where should I order the sti front bumper and fog light covers pre painted?
Where should I get the cusco lip from?

I am trying to upgrade certain parts obviously and I am not going through insurance! Thank u for your help

For OEM parts you'll either want to get them from your dealership, or look for used in the Private Classifieds. Can't go wrong with any subaru specific brand skidplate, they are all good.

Can't help you with the lip.

It's my first winter here in Oregon and I'm cracking up about it. My wife and I are originally from WI and can't believe how freaked out everyone gets in snow. I was pretty impressed by how well her Impreza did though.

thanks guys!! Yeah i should have turned the boost to wastegate boost. I had zero problems going to the mt with a basically stock sti. Now with a green I reved it while moving instant slide and couldnt recover. I am so glad I was only going like 20 mph. I need to take a snow driving class I guess. But hey i am honest and it will get fixed. Thank you for the post I am calling subaru asap!
