Forget about the front bumper, I want to see the new fender garnish!

It's no FR-S front bumper skin but it's a step in the right direction. The pedestal wing is pretty cool! Where can you get that vinyl wrap? I'd love to have my car's picture posted everywhere as a spy pic.

As TylerLieberman pointed out, the bumper appears to follow the same design as the new WRX STI. But as you say, would Subaru use the "T" design in the bumper? Hmm...

Anyway, from what I can tell, I think it would look better than the current Subaru front bumper design but not as good as the current 86/FR-S.

But frankly, I was hoping to see indications of a real rear diffuser and aerodynamic improvements. However, look at how wide the grill is... Why make it that wide unless you are cooling something else. Could they be cooling an intercooler and/or oil cooler afterall? Or would it be for better cooling the brakes?

Just to expand on my post earlier, there clearly appears to be ducts for something as I circled here:

Cant we all agree that it will be awesome that this car keeps going on for another 10+ years and we were the original enthusiasts that made it possible?

This is a great platform. I've ready so many great builds and directions that people took for their blank slate. I love reading the time attack cars on the 1/4 and 1/8 mile tracks, I especially love seeing the circuit FI and N/A builds, the autocross cars do simply amazing.

We all can agree that we bought a really amazing vehicle and that any new edition is thanks to our support of the product.

Interesting. Not a fan of the wing, but the front looks decent.

Presumably, new front bumpers are going to come in pairs. If this is the Toyota, wonder how the BRZ facelift would look?

There will be the same options as ever since this is nothing but a new piece of plastic. The underlying structure remains the same.

I prefer that bumper for the BRZ as I despise the smiley mouth guard it has now.
