option C (bad idea) get lightweight also form local dealer)

option b is my recomendation C provides no support at all

So the version V is only just a 1999 RS's Front Cover? What about eh rear bumper and side skirts?

Also the 99-01 Beam will bolt right on?

the version 5/6 front bumper is almost the same as a usdm 99-01 front bumper..you cant use the usdm bumper beam with the jdm v5/6 bumper

side skirts are the same

rear bumper is a little diffrent in japan...the usdm v5/6 rear bumper has a molded in molding around it..the jdm version does not.

if i remember correctley...you need to use the jdm bumper beam for the jdm rear bumper, but can use the jdm bumper beam for either jdm or usdm bumper's.

in my opinion...i would get usdm 99-01 front and rear bumpers(most of the time they come with the bumper beams)..you could either cut off about 50 pounds from the front and rear bumper beams or just mount them as the factory would.

im going with the weight reductuion method and cutting off all the extra weight i can from my bumper beams

Ok since I am going to be going from an L front end to a Version V (99-01 2.5RS) Front end. What about the wheel Well Covers. Do those need to be replaced also.

Ok I read the whole thing here and I just got finished with the bumper conversion. I have a brighton and I want to add the 01 RS fog lights. I know there is a harness that you can buy to put fogs in the 95.... is it the same connection as the 00-01 RS foglights? If not how do I go about adding some fogs?

No fog lights currently. I have a 95 brighton. I know subaru has a kit for installing the lights.... but is it the same connector as the Rs FOgs, or am I going to be better off with a Hella Kit from rallylights,com?

For those of you who have the v5 replica conversion from Get-Primitive, how is the fitment? The price is great, but if there is substantial gapping I'd rather pay more for OE parts.

Also, anybody get all the parts (including fogs) cheaper than $746.75 from SubaruParts.com?

I asked Paul Ecklund from Primitive about this in January. He said the kit he sells in now is an OEM Urethane bumper cover. You will get a killer deal from him if you buy multiple pieces (i.e. bumper cover, light-weight beam, clear corners, fog covers, etc.). He is super cool and very helpful. Just shoot him an email with any questions. Expect a quick response.

You can use a jdm rear bumper skin on a usdm rear bumper beam.
Visit this link to modify the bumper skin to fit over the bumper beam.

I am currently trying to figure out where this harness, that connects the fogs together, goes to. Is there another part of it that I have to get? Also, does anyone have the part number for the relay?

btw my car is a 93 Impreza L(wagon if it matters)

if your car doesn't originally have fog lamps you'll need all the wiring for fog lamps to get them to work.

I bought this kit. the front bumper is not fiberglass. I'm 100% sure it's an oem part. Paul is super cool to deal with. Let him know what you want and he'll hook you up. If you look under vendor reviews Get-primitive has only has positive comments.

Thank you very much for all the info. I've been wanting to do this for a while but wasn't sure what was all involved.

And also thanks for pointing me to the right companies to get parts.
