Hey man, im in the process of doing the conversion now. It should be done sometime the middle of next week. Heres what you need:

04 headlights (preferably JDM, since they are really cheap)
04 Front bumper Skin(dont get charge speed, because i got that, lol)
04 Fenders (again, dont get Charge Speed, lol)
04 Hood
04 Radiator support
04 Bumper (this is the thing underneath the part you see
04 Bumper Slider brackets (these are the things that go on the side that hook the bumper up on the side)

and i think thats it. Ill post pics of my car when its finished.

Oh and total price for me, for 04 OEM CF hood, charge v2 bumper skin and fenders, 04 JDM headlights, radiator support, brackets, and bumper, came out to be a little under $3000. Not too pricey. If you only want to pay $1000 for it, get into a wreck, lol. Thats what i did! So basically i paid $1000 for my front end conversion. Make sure the body shop will order aftermarket stuff first. Oh and my last most important tip! Dont order your stuff from Vivid! Unless you plan on goign carless for 2 months, waiting for parts!

Front fenders 136.00 ea 272.00
Front Bumper assembly 436.00

Of the three WRX versions-- Colin McRae original, bug-eye, and 04-- the bug-eye is what most Americans associate with being a WRX, since it was the first version for the U.S.. Maybe that's why the gaming companies keep on using it.
Fine with me, I love the styling personally.
