Lightbulb i want EDM/JDM fogs on my '04 (HUGE pics inside)

unfortunately it looks like we're the only market to recieve the projector foglamps as opposed to the larger, reflector type (presumably to accommodate the larger bumper beam, although they were able to keep the fogs on the previous models). i'm interested in doing a conversion and i'm wondering if anyone has seen the wrx bumper in person and knows whether or not the foglight surround is part of the bumper skin. IMO the large(er) foglights are a trademark design cue, and it doesn't look quite 'right' any other way. obviously sti fog covers are an option but i'd like to have the fogs (to me decreased visibility for looks = counter-productive). just a thought, sorry the pics are so big.

you can see the driver in the second picture is a whole lot happier...

It looks like there are projectors in the first pic. Throw some HID's in there and they'll put out nice light!

only problem with that is they still look crappier than the euro ones and the HIDs are counterproductive in fog lamps. I'm with B on this what's up with the non subaru styling on the fogs. And what's with all the yellow in our headlights, ugh. -James

I'm with you all the way on this one. 'Cept I'm afraid Subaru is going 'mainstream' and they seem to be de-emphasizing their rally heritage these days.

Subaru hallmarks: big-ass fogs, flares & hood scoops IMO

Question interference?

didn't someone suggest that it may not be possible because the USDM bumper (not the bumper cover) may interfere with the larger fog light?

While you guys are at it, try painting the little fog inlet/panel thing a flat black. The factory paint colored thing looks like crap.

You're going to have to cut the bumper beam to fit that foglight on.

Not a good idea for insurance purposes.

Strange that the bumper beam would interfer with the fog light and they have to make changes for the US model. I though Subaru would design the Impreza for the global market (i.e. USA included).

Suppose the bumper beams for the usdm and the jdm are different.
One possible reason for the difference is perhaps because of different crash test methods/requirements. Frontal and offset crash tests for example, require the beam to absorb and distribute impact in different ways. The effective bumper stiffness in different areas, viewed in different orientations need to be altered/varied as well. That doesn't mean that any particular country has a stricter crash test standards compared to another; it's just that it may not be possible to make an optimal shape for all kinds of tests. Perhaps Subaru found that they could improve crash rating in the US if the bumper beam is altered the way it is in the my2004.
Of course, this is suppose the bumper beams are different.

My 2 cents

The bumper beams are different. And yes, it is for US crash test rating improvements. Thats why we have projectors. The bogger fogs wont fit without cutting the bumper beam.
