Default Fog Lights

I bought a set of MY01 RS fog light switch/relay/harness for my conversion since I plan to install the 01 big round fog lights. I have 3 questions:

1. Would MY01 RS fog light switch/relay/harness work or should I order MY96 LX switch/relay/harness?

Edit - just found out the relay is the same for 96/01 so the switch/relay should be ok.

2. Where does the relay go? I think it goes under the dash on the left side but need more details.

3. The MY01 harness (about 3.5 ft) seems short. Am I missing any parts?

Edit - MY01 has pre-wired harness so the distance from the fog lights to the mid point connection is short (3.5 ft). For Impreza w/o pre-wired harness, the MY01 harness is too short.

I'd appreciated if anyone can post some instructions on how to install switch/relay/harness. Thanks.

i didnt feel like reading 3 pages of relplies just to make sure im not repeating any questions asked earlier cus im kinda in a hurry.

my 99 rs is going through the cosmetic stages of version 5 conversion and i found the wing and tailights and badges and what not.

now where can i find a real jdm wing and not some fiberglass knock off replica and also the real jdm rear bumper?

actually, fiberglass wing will be fine. i found that and the rear bumper lip but i dont want the look of the jdm rear bumper on the american bumper. anyone know where i can get a true jdm rear bumper for the 98-01 RS and anyone know why did they make the RS with the jdm front bumper, lip, side skirts, WRX spoiler but not the real jdm rear bumper with lip attached?

Try gr8wheels.com possibly? They tend to have a lot of wrecked GC8s come in. I've tried to contact them about a JDM rear bumper in the past but to no avail.

I just wanted to add a little bit of my progress on my 93 -> 2001 v6 ej20t. This is just a test fit, so you'll see some gaps.

Man that front bumper guard took a LONG time to cut in half...and I used a sawzall and grinder! Thought I'd add that if you get the V6 bumper and center grill, you cannot use a V3-4 or usdm 93-96 hood, as the end of the hood doesn't close with the thicker center grill. Can't wait to get my fogs and hood in the mail!

correction- the rounded hood is a JDM version 1-2. version 3/4/5/6 have all the same hood. version 1/2/3/4 have the same bumper.

soo.. a v12 car has round hood round bumper
v34 has angle hood round bumper
v56 has angle hood angle bumper.

information above is correct. if you want to use JDM rounded bumper cover or the angled one as swapstar calls it and your using the impreza L front bumper beam... you'll need to hack off the bottem part of the bumper bar for eather bumper cover.

hmm all that just for a bumper? you would think it would just bolt right up in the stock mounts, maybe ill pass on that, anyways, its just a boady piece, doesnt add horsepower. just like those kids who love their big fancy drift wings on front wheel drive cars and are covered in stickers.....

So, according to the original post, the headlights are interchangable through all years, right? Given you have the correct grille piece.
