Question Crosstrek Fender Flares on Impreza?

Just curious if anyone has added the Crosstrek flares to an Impreza? Thinking it would give it more of an Audi Allroad sort of look.

I have a 17 sport and the fender flares don’t fit with the side skirt. Not sure if they would work on a non sport model.

I doubt I would do this. I just feel like the current model has too much space between the top of the wheel and the fender edge in the rear. The previous model had the rear nice and low. I'm still not a fan of the rear of the current model as it makes the car look too high. I think the bumper shape has something to do with it too.

I talked about this three years ago when I bought my Sport, I agree it would look cool.

I think it would take a lot of cutting to make it fit though.

You can always Plast-Dip the fender lip if you are patient and have $15 to spare.

True but I think the crosstrek flares would add some extension both out and down to close up that wheel well gap.

You think? I figured it was mostly double-sided taped on like most trim, possibly some clips involved for existing holes too.

I'd love to have some sort of fender protection like the Crosstrek on my car. I think by that time I might as well cave in and get the Crosstrek then....

The Crosstrek doesn't have the side skirts that the Sport does though.

Looks like a lot of double sided tape, there are a couple clips you may have to drill to fit, or grind off and just go with tape.
