Wow that was a lot work. i wouldn't even know where to start. Do you know if an 06 bumper would fit an 02 or do you have to change the tail lights and possbly the trunk lid as well?

^ That's exactly right. The only difference is the little circles protruding downward into the rear bumper from the 04-07 tail lights. If you take a close look, you'll see exactly what I'm talking about. All the trunk lids are interchangeable from 2002-2007, but make sure if you get the STi spoiler, you also get the stronger trunk spring to lift that beast, and also make sure your trunk lock cylinder is compatible with your other ones if you do a complete trunk swap. The 02-03 rear bumpers are compatible with 02-03 tail lights only. The 04-07 rear bumper is technically compatible with 02-07 tail lights, but 02-03 will have a tiny gap and not look right, so 04-07 tails are your best bet. 04-07 tail lights can be swapped to whatever style you like the best since they're slightly different throughout the years.
