you'll need the 04-05 style bumper as well in order to fit the 04-07 style tails

^ no you don't. 04-05 tail lights fit fine with the 02-03 rear bumper

actually, IMO it looks even better than with 04-05 bumper since the tail lights stick out about a half inch at the bottom where the bubble protrudes....gives it almost a 3D look.

they basically push against the bumper , the 02-03 style doesn't have the necessary cut out, doesn't look right imo
Each to their own though!

i want the tail lights with the bugeye bumper. it has the stock rear spats built in the bumper. looks soooooooooooo much better than the other wrx bumpers. and yeah they fit bugeye bumpers just fine, seen it done plenty of times

Fenders on, bumper / lip on, bought 04-05 tails and re-configured the bulbs to jdm style.
side skirts, and rain guards left to install, also after a diffuser, then basically ready for paint at the end of march.

couple pics from visiting my buddy at the detailers today, keeping er' clean.
Starting to really dig the two tone colour idea.. maybe not the blue and white colour combo. (fog covers weren't in for the detailers)

Dirty



Clean
(forgot to close hood entirely)

little up date; I ordered new rims for the summer, i decided to go with the Work emotion XD9 in 18x9 +38.
I also took my roof liner out and wrapped it in black suede, picked up a works bell radiator shroud for cheap, and my newest mod, my co-pilot Kyra!

well done man well done I'm in love with your whip....let me tell you , 9 months ago idk how i found this thread but i did and i became amazed and it pretty much persuaded me to buy another subaru i was in the same position as you 18 with $10,000 of my own hard earned cash in the bank (i was torn between buying and lifting a jeep or building another wrx) now i have a built 02 rally blue wrx that i have been hard at work on inside and out with modifications and i couldn't be happier !

Nice stuff.

Though I did the opposite. I took my 04 STi and put a Bugeye front end on it, lol.
