    '06 wrx parts

    Does anyone know where I can buy OEM body panels for an '06 wrx? Suspension? I'm trying to get an estimate of what OEM parts cost, vs aftermarket. Does anyone know a US internet retailer of aftermarket '06 wrx parts? Rallysportdirect is all I've seen.

    You might want to PM trainrex in ref. to body parts/rebuilds but I think in most cases (since insurance pays for most wrecks) it's better to use OEM body parts. Unless you need a grill/bumper/truck/hood I think OEM is the best route.

    ^^^ I think my exhaust is bent, so I'll swap that. After my crash, safety is a primary concern. I saw some of the bumpers were fiberglass, that might not work so well in the event of a crash? My brother has a Jetta with a polyurithane front on it, and the thing is indestructable. Know of any polyurithane bumpers? This is all assuming my car isn' totaled. The insurance company said they'd call today, but I guess it will be tommorow?

    I'd argue the actually material of the bumper itself isnt as important as the foam inside the bumper. All the actual bumper does is pretty things up from the outside, it provides no real protection. When it's impacted it comes down to the bumper beam, bumper supports, mounting locations, and probaly most importantly angle of impact. Be it fiberglass, polyutherane, or water it's just the outside shell your talking about there is much more to it.
