Default How hard would it be to make a 98 or so Impreza to an 03 or 04 looking model?

I was just wondering if it was possible or worth it. Or can you at leats convert the HEadlights? I liek the circular ones a bit better. Thanks

If you wanted to convert the headlights, you have to convert the hood, fenders, grille, and the bumper. So you'd have to swap everything. It wouldn't be too hard, except that the WRX is a wider car.

You are talking a complete custom job. Not for the feint of heart and not bolt-on. Even converting the bug-eye 02 to an 04 requires welding.

Don't deny the truth. That's why you're gonna buy one.

most likely, this dumb kid doesn't even have an impreza yet. and seriously, please stop asking dumb question even without using your brain. This has nothing to do with being a noob, just straight dumb.

first of all, the new age chassis is better all around, the only downside is it's bug face, and weight. but it's more rigid, and turbo motor is available.

so why exactly you want to do that? you basically put the worst of two cars into one. and you end up spend more money then just buy a used REX.
