I highly doubt they will be interchangable. The wrx isnt a trim of imprezas anymore. However the tail lights do look similair.

That doesn't really mean anything anymore. The wrx line was separated to give it it's own entity, but Subaru admitted it would be based on the Impreza platform, and if that's what the final version will look like and not actually a test mule, they it will be extremely similar in terms of overall body structure and panels shared, as well as other component peices, so in all likelyhood it will fit.

...hmmm... i dont know....

I still doubt it.

EDIT: Those lights will definitely not fit. Theyre not the same shape. Its not the final design i guess so it could change, but that bottom edge of the tail light that wraps around the side is too rounded. And the edge that borders the trunk is a different shape as well.

After comparing 2 pics of the same angle it does kinda look a little different. Its hard to tell with the camo. But they are VERY close in size and shape.

Also those bumpers and fenders ain't no hack jobs. They were produced, making me think this is close to what the production car might look like.

Item Under Review

While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!)

We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.
lame, Amazon sells the 24" but not the 26" currently, therefore can't get the 2 for 20 deal

i saw this: if i recall, you get this "once" during the three years?

has anyone done this yet? it seems silly to make an appointment for it...i wonder if you can just drop by and pick it up for a self install...

I haven't "needed" to change my wiper blades in the year I've had my car so far. It is a "once only" deal, though. Just show up and say "hey, gimme wiper blades". It should work.

this was recently discussed in a different thread. you need to make an appointment and it is up to the tech if they will "give" you new blades or not based upon their discretion. i don't really have the time in my day to make an appointment and wait for them to tell me no, they aren't bad yet.

after 18.5k my OEM's are streaking a lot. they were ok up until about 16K

It's in the warranty. I don't see how it's "up to the Tech" if they'll do it. I suppose it just seems odd since the dealership I work with is pretty cool about 'em.

When I was there for a TSB service I requested a new rear blade, it wasn't in stock so they later gave me the refill that I installed myself - not the whole wiper just a blade replacement (the rubber part)

I didn't. I simply unbolted the original 16mm RSB from the endlinks, but left the endlinks in place.

I forgot he didn't install his, he would know how easy it is to replace them if he had

It is just 1 bolt per side

Man, my Rally Armors cannot get here fast enough. UPS says "out for delivery" as of 12am this morning. It's snowing here, so I'd really love to get 'em on and protect what's left of my car!

We really don't count that as snow here. Just flurries and they didn't stick. You should have gotten the UPS delivery before 6PM.

Did you? and if so, any reason other then maintenance inspection or curiosity?

I didnt remove the endlink, just wiggled it around to take out the 16 and put the 19 in.

Upgraded endlinks are expensive..

There should have been a sway bar thread. Half of this 700page thread has been about the rsb. lol

I can't remember if I removed them completely or not, I think I did remove 1, but I was following the service manual procedure which called for removal of both iirc.

Either way, it is just 2 bolts per end link
