GC8 Bumper End Caps - What versions did they come on


Recommended Posts

This Bit: (note that pic isn't of my current car in question)

What versions had these fitted? Reason I ask is that I just had a bumper sprayed and fitted to my V5 and it had the end caps on so I just left them on and they were painted over. The original damaged bumper on the car that I removed didn't have them on but I assumed someone must have just removed them in the past. Now I'm looking at pics of other cars and even original JDM sales brochures and it seems really inconsistent as to which models had them fitted. Were they an option from factory? I'm spewing now cos if they aren't 'meant' to be there and I pull them off I'll have to get the bumper painted again

Looking at JDM brochures and they don't even show them on the V3's so I wonder if they were an optional extra.

Yeah the bumper I replaced looks like the one in your trademe link, but the one I have now is the same bumper, the end cap piece I'm talking about simply sits on top of that lip.

It's confusing though cos here is a version V in japan that has them http://www.todoroki-trading.com/stock/subaru/506-GC8/WRX-STi-VersionV-5.html

I think it looks better without them, in hindsight I should have pulled them off before it was painted.

Neither of my v4 STIs had them and all 3 of my mates v3s HAVE had them...

I've had both a V3 & a V4 with them. And a google search of 'GC8 rear aero mud guards' shows them on V5/V6 as well as this mint V5 in Japan that I posted earlier http://www.todoroki-trading.com/stoc...ersionV-5.html

So i'm gonna go with the theory they are an option

I'm going to agree.. have a v2 gf8 with them on back and v3 gf8 with none and v4 gf8 with them in front and none in back. as long as there not half hanging off then they don't bother me. I remember someone saying something about subaru end caps costing him 80 each from subaru or something along those lines when he came to pickup a part from trademe, was awhile ago

I've got them on my v5 wagon and would not remove them. I like them. On that note I have no spats on my v4 wagon and would really like some if anyone has some floating round.

The side skirts? I've got a set in black if you're interested.

I did have 1 of these left that came off my car thats now being turned into a rally car! If I can find youre more than welcome to have it then you'd only have to find the one for the other side. I will pm you if I can find it because I dont plan on putting it back on the car.

That would be grouse! Cheers.
