Default 2005 Legacy GT w/ B4 Bumper

Anyone know how hard it will be to get the B4 bumper swap? What was subaru thinking with the US bumper? The US can never have the "perfect" subaru like UK and Japan. I am sick of it I tell you....Once I find out who is behind redesigning all US cars from the Japanese specs I am going to try like hell to get him fired. That man doesn't needs a couple lessons in style.
Anyways....it looks like the B4 bumper and side skirts will just be a swap bolt-on....it would be nice to be able to get em soon.

Default 2005?

Or do you mean 2004. The 2005 models are not even out yet..and won't be for a couple of months yet. For our 2004 models (jdm 2003), you would need the 2 fenders, a hood, 2 headlights and the bumper to do the conversion. That is assuming you are talking about the last revision of the BE (revision d).

Government regulations are to blame for the difference in US spec cars, JDM and European cars do not meet the safety requirements for the North American market.

So the Man you want fired is the goverment:-)

If you were to change those bumpers and then get into an accident, you'd be leaving yourself wide open to a big case of legal whoop-a$$!

Get used to it, accept it! Personally I kinda like the front bumper (more pointy!) As for the back, i say whatever. It ain't much different than what I have now!

One last recourse. You could move to Japan!
