Default eBay front bumper corner splitters

I was wondering if anyone has ever purchased these. I've been looking for reviews but cannot find anything. I need them because I was to put a v limited lip on my wrx. Are they any good or should I shell out the 180$ to get them from Subaru? The eBay ones do not come painted but I have some grimmspeed WRB spray paint so I figured it'll do just fine. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I had the same exact problem with mine. I bought a v limited lip and it didn't fit without the bumper splitters so I cheaped out and bought the ebay ones. I am currently awaiting for a second set to be shipped because the drivers side one was so deformed that there was no way I could heat it/bend it to shape the bumper. The passenger side one fit OK but is not great. Spend the extra money and go OEM. They fit better, look better, and you don't have to worry about painting them.

Yea kind of what I was afraid of. Did you take any pics of the one you did install? I ordered them after I posted this but I guess I can return them if they don't look good. What color did you paint yours?

I just installed a set recently. They are attached with double sided tape as opposed to having clips like the oem. The bottom pieces are different and they don't quite fit right on a wagon.
Go with oem.
Also, you don't necessarily need them to mount a lip. Just have to trim the high spots on the lip to get it to work.

Yea the double sided tape really doesn't seem like it would look nice or sit flush with the rest of the bumper. I was thinking of cutting my bumper and the side splitters from the top so I could snap it in like the oem ones. No clue if it would work but I think I'll just return them and cough up the extra 100$ to get the oem

I finally put in the splitters and v limited lip. I returned the eBay ones and went for the oem couldn't have been easier and I think they look great!



I did not like the way the eBay ones looked and they had to be painted very happy with my decision.
