Default Exterior difference between a Version 7 STi, and a USDM '02 WRX

Title pretty much says it all. But what are all the visual differences between a Version 7 STi and the '02 USDM WRX?

I know:
- Head lights
- Front Grill
- Side Markers
- Hood Scoop
- Door Stickers
- Rear Badge

Anything else I'm missing?

I'm thinking of making my Bugeye into a Version 7 STi.

Was the roof vent on the standard Version 7 STi?

Forgive my n00bness but what is a strake kit, and spats? I don't know much about cars look wise, I know more about the mechanics of them.

good luck with the s202 parts, chances are slim to none that you find anything genuine.

Strakes: [IMG]https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/i...subaru-wrx.jpg[/IMG]

Rear spats: [IMG]https://www.subarugenuineparts.com/images/WRXrear.jpg[/IMG]

Although, all the pictures of the v7 STi I've seen do not have the strakes or the rear diffuser/spats. Usually it's the OEM painted sideskirts, v1/v2 lip and obviously, the rest of what you've mentioned.

Anyone have a good high-res pic detailing a Version 7 STi? I keep trying to find good ones online, but just get the newer models.

Thanks for the response. Got my version 7 rear bumper take off installed this weekend, but what did you all do for the licence plate? The hole in the bumper is larger in all dimensions than the usdm one. Is there a mounting bracket or something or should I just get creative?

Also. Nice car in above!
