Have you seen the sport grille? Just a plain black mesh with a subaru logo dead center. Basically lowers the logo of the stock grille and removes that gray bar on top.



Other than that there may be some aftermarket ones.. One is basically the sport grille with a chrome bar cutting it in half horizontally... Looks like crap to me.

Yep... There are a couple clips on the bottom of the grill attaching it to the bumper... Don't forget those.

I can buy the Sport grille from Subaru? I like how that one looks a million times better. I had it on my 08 and I liked it a ton. I rather spend the $300 and not paint something. Im a accountant not an artist lol.

Yeah, unfortunately, there aren't too many grill options for the 08+ WRX/STi. Grillcraft only makes a mesh insert for under the grey/silver bar setup. I think the sport grill probably looks the best based on what's on the market right now.

But if man shows post didn't answer it, yes you can order them from the dealer or you can find them online too. Usually around 225-250, fastwrx has them for 225. Just match your color.

Heh, sorry... I just re-read my last post. Didn't mean to cause any confusion
