    Looking for taillights

    I am looking for a taillight conversion kit for a 2003 wrx wagon! There are a ton of them for the sedans but I need to find some for my wagon. Send me a link if you know where to find some.

    Thanks

    John

    Keep an eye on the NASIOC for sale forum and you may find some 04-05 style tails from a wagon to swap over. Wagon tails do seem to be far more rare though

    04-05 tails won't fit in a 02-03 without changing the bumper.

    Small cut in the bumper and they will fit.

    I forgot you had said that...how's it actually work anyway?

    And are the wagons different then sedans at all in that sense?

    Under the circular part of the 04+ taillights there is a small piece of foam. Remove that. The circular part will then sit up against the bumper (not in like on 04+ bumpers) and the rest of the tail light will sit correctly. However, the lights will still stick out a hair on the trunk side as the 04+ bumper is shaped differently there. Unless you look closely, you will never notice. My personal experience is only with sedans but I believe I have read somewhere that it works the same for wagons

    Ahh gotcha. I always wondered if it was just plastic and not actually "built" into the light, meaning it could do what you did haha. Guess I was right in my assumption.
