Question Base Impreza & STI appearance questions

TLDR= Would a 2012-2014 STI Hood, Wing, Front & Rear Bumpers, & Wheels fit on a 2012-2014 base Impreza??

Hi All,

I used to have an '07 STI. I sold it. I am going to be purchasing a 12-14 Impreza soon.

However, I was thinking about possibly slowly upgrading parts to make it look like an STI, before investing in more power, etc.

My question is fitment from same year Impreza to STI, ie, '12 to '12.

I was thinking the biggest things are: Hood, Wing, Front Bumper, Rear Bumper, and Wheels.

The hood & front bumper seem like they would swap off and on fine, and the wing just sits on the hood, no issue there. Wheels, assuming same bolt pattern shouldn't be a problem either.

However, I was looking at rear pictures of a 2012 Impreza and a 2012 STI, and im not sure if it was because of the pictures or not, but the rear lights looks very different, and it doesn't look like bumpers are the same fitment, and the Impreza bumper looks like it is one piece along with the 'side skirts.'

This got me thinking about maybe subtle differences between the fronts as well...

Would a 2012-2014 STI Hood, Wing, Front & Rear Bumpers, & Wheels fit on a 2012-2014 base Impreza??

Thank you!

Wheels definitely won't. 5x114.3 on STI vs. 5x100 on 2.0i.

Not going to comment on fitment of body panels, as I don't know.

'12 Impreza and '12 STI are different generations. The '15 WRX and STI are wider than the Impreza. The headlights and grill are also different.

Like Caltech said, realistically no. Just buy a WRX.

I have a 2012 sedan and wanted to do the same stuff as you. The 08+ sti wing fits (I have that right now on my impreza). Looking at the new Gen sti the trunk is similar to ours so I bet it would fit. The hood and bumpers would require a lot of modification to work.
