09 wrx aftermarket front bumper

so my front bumper is cracked and one clip is broke. my insurance will pay to replace it, but i don't want to buy another stock bumper (i think it's the worst part of the car). has anyone seen any aftermarket front bumpers for the wrx? i've seen some for sti but not wrx.

It's made of FRP. You might have to call for price.

Another option is to keep the stock front bumper and get a nice front lip.

I agree with adding the front lip spoiler or whatever to the stock bumper considering most of the aftermarket bumpers here and elsewhere that I've seen (actually all of them) are really for FMIC applications. Although it will cool your radiator thoroughly though =-D That one from Chargespeed was over $1,000!!!

Another thing about the body kits...... They never fit as good as OEM. I work at a body shop and I hate body kits. If your going to get a body kit, make sure it is the highest quality kit you can find. Anything else is not gonna fit like your going to want it to.

i think some people might have misunderstood my want for widebody. i wasnt saying i want a widebody i just want the possibilty to put a different look to my car and more options. i was saying the widebody because then it would let me have the same options as the sti would have since there are alot of aftermarket body kits for it. i love the sti's they come right out of the box awesome but for me it happen to work out better for me to get the 09 rex because for me... it was almost 10 grand cheaper than the new stis and i didnt want the hatch. AND its damn fast in 0-60 right out of the box . so the wrx is good for me ... but this is for everyone to read and those who are looking at buying scooby its important to see all the pros and cons
