there are multiple threads about the 08+ sti conversions. but here is a summary anyway:

sti bumper and front fenders just swap over, they bolt right up. but for you to get the full sti look, you need sti rear doors and you need to cut and weld in the sti rear fenders/quarter panels. the sti sideskirts only work with the sti rear fenders.

there does that help?

i feel like if you got the front end then did a agressive wheel set up and rolled the rear fenders it would look really good?

It looks really bad if you only do the front or the back. But it looks great if you do both.

has anyone actually scene it though? i mean i havent seen anyone show how bad it looks? the rear on the WRX isnt that bad its still got a little flare to it so if u put some nice aggressive rims on it i think it could look pretty clean....??
