I'm waiting for front lip and side skirts for this car as well.

I was tempted to order one for the 2015 WRX since the dimentions look close, but I didn't end up buying it.

Let us all know if it fits!! I would love to find a lip that fits.

A homedepot lip would be a great solution while waiting for something cheap that looks good.

Hopefully fitting that 2015 lip won't require too much work. Seen some similar fittings that required chopping the lip in half.

Be aware that the WRX currently is still based on the 4th Gen Impreza. Whether you can make this fit on a 5th Gen Impreza will likely be up to your own creativity.

2.0i Base, MT5. Only the necessities, plus a few extras.

What about that EZ-Lip rubber front lip thing for a temporary solution ? Easy to apply, fairly cheap, looks pretty decent and holds up very well.

Anyone know if the JDM front ends are the same (dimension-wise)? Since I know a lot of USDM cars have slightly longer bumpers.

Wow, that lip from japan is nice, but its 700 CAD shipped.

The old lips were based off of the 4th gens but not for the impreza. Those lips required 1 or 2 inches to be cut off in the middle to fit.

Our cars are wider then the 4th gen impreza and dimensions are closer.

I'll wait to see if the ordered sti lip will fit from OP.

If it does, those can be had for around 200 CAD shipped, which would be so much easier on the wallet.
