The OEM ones have double sided tape as well as 4 have to drill holes in the fender and it takes some skill to do it perfectly. I just pulled my rear bumper supports so that the bumper matches the flare but there is a small gap between the top of the bumper and rear quarter panel, but not horrible, especially since the flares match up to the body perfectly on the rest of the car. I also cut the inner lip and part of the body panel to fit my wider wheels/tires under there...has more clearance than rolling the fenders alone.
Just a small correction... STi came in PSM in 04 and 05. My 04 STi was PSM actually...

On another note, the flares don't look too bad, but would definitely look better with the STi rear bumper.
