Just wait until someone rear ends you to get the back done, and someone hits your car from the front to get the rest.

I prefer my bugeye front, but I agree that the 04 rear is a ton better.

Why is the '04 rear "tons" better? Tailights? Lower bumper looks different?

Never heard peanut eye before, chargespeed got it wrong though. They should of made a kit to change the peanut to the bug--i bet it would sell better.

The taillights mostly. The 03 ones are ugly in my opinion. Too simple. The 04 has a bolder look to it.

Of course, its all just my opinion.http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/newr...ply&p=9141886#

Agreed~ i think that the peanut to bug eye would be a better seller. cmon, nobody would expect it to really be an STI. perfect sleeper.

New style looks too ricey in the rear, should have left it alone.

Please, all. Peanuts are not "blobs", they are "goobers".

Would you rather drive a "bug-eye" or a "goober"???

I'll stick with my "bug-eye" , thank you very much!!
