2010 WRX Lip

Well, there it is. I saw it on someone's car from nasioc and was wondering if it would fit on the 2009-2010 wrx. It looks like it would but I want to make sure.

Yep, the 08+ STIs definitely have larger flares and front bumper. Therefore it would stick out side and front. I guess you can DIY though. Lips have been modded, cut, shaved or cut in half then bondo'd from other cars to fit others. Just got to know how to do it!


They make the EXACT same lip for WRX, I'll look for the link.

yep that is very true you can just cut it and make it fit by using kitty hair . and some kind of backing. i have done many mods with fiberglass including some work with carbon fiber. and its just too much work to do though. not really worth it to me. i would rather find one that would just bolt up. one major reason why i say not to on this part is because any time you modify something that is going to be hitting the floor alot is a bad desicion . they will break if you dont do it right or even if you do it right too. because these will always hit the floor if your car is lowered or even if it a steep hill. if you were willing to do the work i can tell you how to do it correctly .

I agree, the last thing you want is to have cracks always appearing where you cut and frankensteined your lip back together. That piece takes a serious amount of abuse being at the front/bottom of your car. My car isn't lowered and I still scrape it on steep inclines occasionally. I opted for a polyurethane imitation STi V-Limited lip for my car because it was inexpensive and it won't crack like a fiberglass lip would. So far, it's held up pretty well for almost 40,000 miles/2 years.
