Default EBAY (cheap) license plate relocation kit

What's up guys. So I have a 2007 Impreza 2.5i I picked up cheap that I'm going to run this winter and looking for stupid and cheap mods to set it apart from the rest of the crowd. One of the things I came across browsing ebay was this plate relocation kit. Now I noticed a few different kits, but I liked this one in particular that to me looks like a Grimmspeed knockoff. For $42 shipped, I figured I'd give it a shot. Again, this is my winter rig and I really could not give a crap. Cheapest route possible, #aintcare

Ebay store was wsa-auto. Or Extreme Online Store as it says in it's description.

Fast shipping, kit came in today. Looks IDENTICAL to the grimmspeed kit. A ton of included hardware, very detailed instructions with pictures and labels. This kit has almost an infinite amount of places for it to be once mounted.



Now it pretty self explanatory how it's installed, but I have to make note of how impressed I was with the quality. Really heavy duty, textured finish that was not flimsy at all. Tow hook mount fit perfect and looks great all tightened up and ready to go



And installed, money shot



Not much else to say. Great purchase, absolutely love it. Not a single problem or downside with the kit, it's on there very snug and tight. Definitely recommend this for a cheap alternative compared to other name brands. If you have the money, I do recommend giving it to a reputable company instead of an unknown source. That said, I really wanted the cheapest route I could find with this build. We'll see how it stands up to a tough northeast winter but I'm not worried at all.

Thanks for reading, hope to help anyone wondering about this as was I

Thank you for the detailed review. Do you know if it is the same threads as the 2.0I 2013 Hatch? Also, does it fit pretty flush to your bumper, and do you think it will fir flush to mine?

I'll basically post what I PM'd you for anyone else who may be interested or have questions.

The fitment is perfect, very flush but not quite touching the bumper. What's cool about this kit is you can change the angle of the plate to contour with your bumper or however you want. I took this picture here to show fitment:



As far as it fitting your car, I don't think that exact kit 02-07 will fit since mine is a GD, BUT I see they make another one to fit the GR Impreza's. This is also the same seller I got mine from.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/121358176124

I'm not too familiar with how the newer Subaru's may differ but I would think that one I linked would fit if yours is like that. Don't hold me to it though! You could always buy it and send it back and get a full refund if it doesn't fit, that's what I love about ebay.

Might as well post up a recent shot of mine. I adjusted the plate slightly so it doesn't block the fog lights I put in. No issues and it's still on there very tight!
