License Plate Mounts for Older Subaru
On occasion Adapter Foundry receives inquires about a kit for previous generation Subaru with a Japanese Domestic Market front bumper. These previous generation Subaru have Rectangular holes in the front bumper.
Adapter Foundry doesn't make a kit for these Subaru, however there is one kit available that may work for your Subaru. The kit is made by Totsubo Motorsports and can be purchased here.
The Totsubo kit is advertised as being compatible with select years of the Impreza WRX. But is compatible with select years of Forester, also.
The Totsubo license plate mount fits all trim levels of the following vehicles:
- Impreza WRX 2008 - 2014 (please see "Impreza" vs "Impreza WRX" below)
- Forester 2009 - 2013
Here is a Totsubo license plate mount on a 2011 Forester.
"Impreza" vs "Impreza WRX"
I would like to point out there are two different models of Subaru with similar names. The "Impreza WRX" and "Impreza" these are very different vehicles that a person might mistake as the same model with a different trim level. Just to be clear these are two different cars.
Impreza 2008 - 2011
This kit might be compatible with the 2008 - 2011 Impreza 2.5i. The Impreza 2.5i has the same holes as the models listed above. What's unknown is how deep the holes are? If the Impreza 2.5i has holes at least as deep as the Forester then this kit will work on the Impreza 2.5i, also.
If you have successfully used the Totsubo license plate mount on a Impreza 2.5i model year 2008 - 2011 leave a comment below, please also mention the year of your Subaru.
