Default 2004 STi nose bra? WRX nose bra?

I've been looking for a nose bra for the STi just to protect the bumper from rock chips on long drives. Id remove it once I arrived at my destination. The only one ive been able to find is a nose bra for a 2004 WRX. Do you think that would fit the STi front end? Given the front is structurally the same except for the side fins. Ive thought about 3M film and its just too expensive and it yellows in time. I dont really like the idea of having tape on my bumper 24/7. Its just easier and more cost effective for me to use a nose bra on trips.

It won't fit... I tried. If you remove the side splitters, it should.

I'm not a big fan of car bras. When you get dust under the bra it acts like sandpaper.

Yeah I know, but it would be minimal to use it only for a 4hr drive. Much better than leaving the front to the mercy or stones and bugs.

What brand did you try? The only one I have found was one made by LaBra for 04 WRX. It really wont fit over the side splitters huh, its that tight of a fit? Maybe some strap adjustments would make it work?

Talk to Chad at Rockblocker, he's a good guy and I'm sure if your clearbra ever yellows he'd replace it. I haven't seen one yet that's yellowed though.

The Subaru one for the '04 RS. I guess you could potentially add straps to try to make it fit...

I'll be going with Rock Blocker once I can get my front bumper resprayed.

Did you try carbras.com? They sell one, made by Perfect Fit, that I purchased for my 04 WRX. Works great and fits like a glove. It's my understanding that they make the factory Subaru units. No high wind tabs that disturb the intercooler either. The price and quality is great also. You may want to give them a yell.
