are the headlight housings painted? have any more pics?

It's been moved a little to the center enough to clear the fogs

anyone have a clue if this or the STI front lip will fit on a 2013 impreza? at least you can paint this one as opposed to the STI carbon fiber one.

I would mount it a little closer to the center.
I made mine out of the tow hook chopped and a generic plate holder.

It won't fit. There is a specific lip "sti" style or look for our cars and it's an OEM..

Not that I'm saying I know what I'm talking about. But all the STI lips I've seen on cars and advertised are Carbon Fiber or black. I'm also trying to keep the price under $300 including paint. That's why I'm debating about the one I posted with the eBay link above or buying the Subaru under spoiler.

Anyone install the strut bar? Considering going with this but curious to hear if anyone has any thoughts on it all.

My research suggests that aftermarket strut bars are cosmetic only, and do nothing measurable for performance.

I asked about it last week. Everyone said it does nothing for these cars. The strut towers are welded to the firewall so there's not much flex to begin with. Does look kinda nice though. You can get a decent one on eBay for around $100 if you're going for the look.

On my previous FWD cars, the strut bar combo helped a lot. Supposedly on Subaru's it's cosmetic only. I'm still doing the Perrin front bar though. It looks good. lol

I'm just getting it for looks obviously. What ones on eBay for $100. I been looking for days and haven't seen any for that price.... At least the correct ones that is.

There used to be one listed for the Crosstrek. It was like 150. For fvat much, I'd add the extra 30 and get the Perrin. lol

Yea... I know it's kinda silly for an impreza but I'm all about appearance for a no zoom zoom car. I could've sworn someone else posted those specific type of STB won't fit in an impreza Bc of that curve and firewall issues. They need the regular straight ones.

Yeah after looking the Perin for $197 seems like the only one that would work. It diverts pretty far towards the firewall instead of going up and over. It's like that on the WRX it appears to clear things, while we have nothing to clear on these.

I know I've seen a picture of a Perrin on either a 12+ Impreza or Crosstrek.. That's enough for me. lol
