Well, I had to drill two holes, cause I have a wagon instead of a sedan. The holes on the underside didn't line up AT ALL for me, so I had to drill two of them.
Not a big deal, alot of people on here removed the upper clips, and used double sided tape. I have pics too, I will post them up.

Besides once I got them in place, the slitse I had drilled were covered up again.

i just finished putting these on my wagon. and i'll attest to adidas. i had to drill two new holes in addition to cutting slots for the tabs, which i kept. and man, those slots were a PITA. but i used to tape, only three bolts oper side and it is solid. if you pull on any part of the splitter, the whole bumper moves. if i did it again, i'd take my time. the first side we did is a tad bit sloppier than the second, but the average person can't tell that it's not stock.

overall, i'm very impressed. once i got over the fear of hacking a perfectly good bumper, it went pretty smoothly.

Same here. Just did my wagon and I used the slots + 3 bolts (+ extra drilling). Used a longer bolt, spacer and lock washer for the front "tip" bolt because of the gap and the splitter fits perfect. Looks more natural with the splitters (same height as the sides) and is definitely meaner. WAGON FTW!!!

I picked up a used set and installed them on my 04 wagon today.

I used a dremel to cut off the 3 top tabs & the other mounting points, sanded everything flush and drilled 3 holes on each for bolts/spacers since nothing on the underside lined up. I also used really strong automotive double sided tape for the top edge and outermost edge by the foglight. They are on tight.

Here are some (crappy) pictures. Please excuse the chips/scrapes:

Just read through the thread and everyone keeps talking about the "supplied hardware". I just got mine in from SubaruGenuineParts.com and didn't get any hardware. Ah well. Guess I will have to drop by the hardware store before the install.

Only thing that is confusing me a little is the mentioned 3x3mm portion toward the skinny end of the piece that needs to be trimmed. Other than that, after my own personal mock-up, it looks pretty simple.

re-check the packaging. there should be some supplied bolts and stuff.

once you do a test fit you'll know what we're talkin about regarding the 3x3 portion.

I imagine its this little bugger.



Just wanted to make sure before I started any cutting. Plus, I imagine when those 3 clips go in, they aren't coming back out very willingly. Oh and I double checked the box. I got stiffed by SubaruGenuineParts. No hardware to be found. Not a big deal.

SubaruGenuineParts offers the splitters two ways - with and without the hardware. Are you sure you ordered the right kit?

SOB.

:::sigh:::

I didn't know they sold the "kit" with hardware. When I ordered, I only saw the per side advertisements. The kit is on the next page.

You would think they would group this stuff together.. :P

Can anyone tell me what hardware comes with the kit? Is it actually "bolts" like people keep saying or is it the rubber anchored screws?

Heres how it turned out for me. Hardest part was the first dremel cut. I had to look at it for a second and say a little prayer that everything works out :P. But once you get going it takes about 30 minutes to do both sides. Since I didn't have the stock hardware, I went down to Autozone and grabbed some clips and some 1/2" push lock pins (?what their called). It went on SOLID. Used two clips and 2 pins per side. I really think the two sided tape approach would have been a big mistake. I'm glad I made the cuts.

Sedan lips will not fit a wagon unless you want to cut and do some work on them, or unless you want to do an entire front end swap.

If you can find a source you can buy the Sti Wagon parts from Japan which are direct bolt on.

02-03 there are a few wagon kits in the states however 04+ JDM Sti wagon is the only way without modding the lips or body.

Here are my lips JDM Sti wagon.

OBS and Wrx wagons are exactly the same width. My wife has the OBS 02 and I have the 04 Wrx wagon, the 02-03 Wrx Wagon Body Parts will fit on the OBS, they will look weird if you do not get the same model years.

All side skirts are interchangeable between model years and sedans, no problems. My pics above I have the Sti skirts on my wagon.
