i know this thread is old but i just got an 02 wrx and i was wondering how hard it is to get closer to the looks of the 04/05 which is my favorite body style. Mainly the front end

Change the whole front clip. The hood, fenders, lights, bumper. I think the crash bar is different also if Im not mistaken. Its been done for several different years/swaps. I dont know how much all that work/paint/parts would cost. But best bet would be to look for the body style you want and get it.

Yup. Late 03=BA for me!!! I like the low hood and the high fenders of the 03. Also how the face (front of the car) matches the dash board.

In 04 they put the speedometer in the wrong place and the seats are too wide for my narrow butt. The "face" doesn't match anything and don't get me started on the snow shovel hood scoop. Its square and has sharp lines when the rest of the car is round and curvy.

Sorry to hate they just look wonkie to me. (not that a bugeye doesn't look wonkie to some).

I always liked the 06/07 Very mean looking Nice headlights.

All right, where is the distributor cap? I need to find the #1 plug wire to hook up my SUN machine.
