Parts Bin: Innovator – Zerosports Grill + LED

Two of the most love-it-or-hate-it things come together: Zerosports grill and LED retrofit. The result: I kind of dig it. Not something I’d run out and do tomorrow personally, but doesn’t look bad.

From the owner:  “When I got this grille I felt the same as you, like something was missing, so just out of curiosity I pulled these LEDs out and they fit perfectly. I ended up dremeling out the holes a tiny bit just to get them to fit more flush but they literally just snap in. Also fit perfectly into the DRLs too!”

This is the part. Be warned it’s from APC >.<

The Zerosports grill has always looked like it was missing something with the three holes on either side – perhaps trying to echo the lines of the three holes on either side of the bugeye sedan bumper. Oddly enough LED’s fit the holes perfectly (I’d probably skip the parking light LED)

The Zerosports grill is part of the recently revived company’s lip kit lineup for the GD impreza, not to be confused with its full aero kit offering:

Over the years the grill was the runaway success of the company’s aero offerings for the GD Impreza. Even the grill commonly known as the “Liberal replica” is in actuality a Zerosport grill with the holes shaved off (which just by coincidence looks like the Liberal grill).
