    Supposedly (rumor probably) there will not be a fog light option (from Subaru) for the STi. I'm sure a ton of aftermarket vendors will make a fog light kit.

    Also it looks like the fog light bezel might be a brake duct for cooling.

    See bottom left of the fog light bezel

    You getting one? :)

    They are getting to be Legacy GTs more than racey rally cars. Nice upgrades though. I wouldn't mind having one.
