Parts Bin: JDM Aero mudguards
These aren’t particularly rare or unusual pieces to see on bugeyes. Although with the front pieces (but not the rears) now produced by replica companies, it’s a bit less common to see the full front & rear set of this JDM OEM Subaru part. Subaru’s answer to those who like the idea of RallyArmour or STI mudguards, but think they look a bit utilitarian. While they’re sexy, and likely functional at some level, I’ve heard they’re really more of a “looks” part.
I’ve always been a fan of these, and especially when used as a complete front&rear set.

What I didn’t know is that you can run the two front sets on opposing sides of the sideskirts. Leave it to the Japanese to think up something like this:
Creative. I actually like it – Like a lot. More respect because those are likely two sets of authentic JDM aero mudguards since the car is a JDM STI. Reminds me somewhat of Hamann sideskirts for BMW’s. This is possible to do on the bugeye as well.
