Default Need help with side skirt application!

Does anyone know if the 2008-2010 subaru sti OEM side skirts fit the 11+ models? I been calling around the dealerships and they tell me the part numbers are different but when you look at the side skirts from all the years they look totally identical! Some sites that sell after market of course mark them as 2008-2014, and some dont. Has anyone tried fitting these personally on their car?

Why not just get the one meant for your car?

If there are different part numbers, the skirts are probably different. They may look the same, but I'm sure they are somehow different. Car companies make a ton of changes to cars from year to year that we have no idea about. Given that the 11+ has a slightly different body than the 08-10, it is most likely not going to fit. That isn't to say that you couldn't rig it somehow, but I'd be careful.

Subaru wouldn't go through the hassle of making different part numbers if they were the same.

I can't say exactly because the JDM S206 side lips fits 08-14 STi both hatch and sedan so they might be the same. I know BigT324 said Subaru wouldn't go through the hassle of making different part numbers but I see them change their part numbers on the Subaru oil even when the content didn't change. For example:
Old Part Number SOA427V1310
New Part Number SOA868V9300
Part Name SYNTHETIC 0W-20 OIL (1 quart size)
Which I thought it was weird they even go through the trouble of changing the part number. But what do I know? LOL!

Yah what you told me is pretty much exactly what the dealerships told me. I think because during the model change from 10 to 11 they wanted to separate all part numbers. I know for a fact the fenders from 08-14 fit the same. Im only asking because i plan to rock carbon fiber side skirts but the application says from 08-10. I wanted to be sure before i made the purchase.

Yah what you said is true on the s206 side lips. They do fit all applications...Only thing that is making me hesitant to go through with this is the different part numbers LOL...

Very interesting. I stand corrected! I can't beleive that they did that, very weird.

To the OP, you could purchase them and do a dry fitting (no bolts, 3m tape etc.) to size them up. If it doens't work return them. Although none of this is as helpful as if someone would just answer the question. SORRY!
