    Rear Bumper Mod

    So im getting the invidia n1 Racing exhaust with single tip for my wrx, but the only problem is the rear bumper is gonna look funny with the dual spaces for a quad tipped exhaust. Anyone know any cool mods to make the single tip fit it in a little better?

    Some guy in my area with an s2000 has a single output exhaust with a dual cutout bumper, and he put a brakelight in the cutout. honestly, not the look I'm after, but i feel it looks better then the dumb cutout with nothing in it.

    In continental western countries, using the right for the exhaust and the left for a red lamp is brilliant (pardon the pun): rear fog lamps ought to be mandatory.

    You could do it like the puma imprezas & just cut the diffuser out all together. Then you'd be showing off that nice big chrome pipe too
    Just a thought. All it would take is a dremmel with the cutting bit & a steady hand.

    Let's keep this on topic guys, this isn't OT, and the rules specifically state to be extra patient and curteous in the New Member Forums.

    To answer the OP's question more directly, I don't think there's a lot you can do other than significant modification to the bumper (i.e. cutting it up nearly to the point of removal), which you may or may not be willing to do on a new car. I do like the idea of a rear fog light in the other cutout. That would certainly be unique and an extra safety measure as well.

    Obviously, Subaru designed the car to have a dual exhaust, so there won't be anything OEM out there to fix this. Maybe try talking to an exhaust shop about doing a custom setup for you?

    I'd worry about unnecessary discussions with LEO if I had a rear-facing light on my car, regardless if it was powered on or not. Plus, I think it would draw even more attention to the unevenness than the empty outlet.

    Rear fog lamps are red. They are intended to prevent rear end collisions. They are also common, though only one of my cars has one fitted from the factory. The Imprezas do have the provision at least in some models, and there are ways to get the hardware for the factory rear fog at least for the older cars.

    I see them in use all the time even in SoCal and even without fog, because people don't know their front fog light switch also actuates their rear fogs. Common on imports.
