i think it is because the 05s have a little different side skirt.

I am guessing you have the sport package which comes with painted side skirts. I too just found out I will have to cut my front splash guards to get them to fit. We shall see how this project goes in the next week or so.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhh... i see

RS sport = side skirts yep

RS splash guards (and all subaru splash guards) are made for the cars with NO SIDE SKIRTs... Thus they do not fit the front bit correctly.

Get a dremel or a file and cut the front mudflaps to fit over the sideskirts.

Subaru needs to make a template for this! LOL

Jamie, just curious...do the dealers cut the guards by trial and error or do they have a template?

Thanks!
