If it says it fits, then it fits. I don't know why you'd want to do something so embarrassing as body kit a 148hp car to look like a 300hp one, but if you really want to, it should fit...

There are much better things the money could go to.

Depends on what edition of Impreza you have, from 2012 - 2014 two styles of cars had the Impreza badge. WRX/STI versions as shown in your link and then the 2.0 liter Impreza version. These parts are not cross compatible! If you car looks like the one shown in the link then yes it will fit, but if it looks like this one;

Then do not hit that purchase button!

For side skirts, you could get the skirts and other trim pieces that Subaru puts on the Impreza Sport Premium hatchback. Then you'll know they fit.

If you want a word of advice, don't buy any body kits from extreme dimensions, Duraflex etc, they're all the same pile of crap just a different name. If you insist on going with the body mods, my only advice is to look up quality parts form reliable companies. I bought a extreme dimension kits 2 years ago for my old Impreza, and oh my god.. Was it a nightmare. They're bumpers don't ever even fit the car, and are made from a really ****ty cheap like material that's chips like no other. So if you want to spend 20+ hours on just getting your bumpers to fit, this will definitely keep you occupied for awhile

Agreed.

Body kits reduce the function and resale value of your car.
