Subaru OEM JDM Grille

- 2015-2017 WRX / STI

As a proud owner of a USDM 2015 WRX or WRX STI, you might haven noticed that the grille is different from models being sold just about everywhere else. At least they didn't change the entire bumper or attachment points for the JDM grille. STI owners can re-use their factory STI emblem if they wish as it unbolts from the OEM grill. Optional STI emblem available for purchase as well if you would like. OPTIONAL ADD-ON: Red, White, Blue, and Green Emblems Available for purchase separately here.

  1. Clean Looking, easy install

    By Presto October 28, 2017

    I installed this jdm grill on a 16' wrx, watched the subispeed video a few times and it was really easy. Less than 40 minutes. The hardest part was getting the bumper back on with only two hands. I changed out the emblems at the same time to get rid of the chrome. Now its matte black and red. Quality product, any time you're going to do any work or mods where the bumper comes off I would recommend reinstalling this one before you put the bumper back on.

  2. JDM look and quality

    By Alexander May 21, 2017

    The subtle yet noticeable changes of the JDM grill are a big win. One of the biggest bangs for the buck, cosmetically. Remove front bumper and easy install. Consider upgrading to LED turn signals or an oil cooler since bumper is already coming off.

  3. Great look-easy install

    By MT12 April 19, 2017

    Grill looks great and fits perfectly. Installation was easy. Followed their install video and had no problems.

  4. Subtle, But NICE

    By Shawn December 30, 2015

    I received this as a gift for the holidays. I wanted it, but have not gotten around to purchasing the exterior mods for my WRX as I have been focusing on performance. To the everyday person, they will not see the difference. However, it is one of those subtle things that you the owner will love. It did come with extra screws and mounting bracket for the bumper, but that is standard as it is a direct replacement from over seas. I was able to do the install by myself with no problems. I only wish they made a grill to replace the lower that is also a gloss black finish like this grill. It looks a tid bit off since the lower grill is more of a matte finish, but overall its worth it. The price could be a bit lower for what it is as well.

  5. The beauty is in the details

    By Brian November 8, 2015

    One of the few things I didn't like initially about the WRX was the grille. That toothy grin just wasn't for me. Once I found out about this grille and how it looks on the car, I had to get one for mine. Install is pretty simple if you've pulled bumpers before; remember to bring your patience! I installed it a few months ago, but it still brings a smile when I walk up to my car. If you're of the type that appreciates the fine details, this is definitely for you.

  6. Its the little things

    By eric July 15, 2015

    This may not be a huge change, but to me it looks so much better than the USDM version. Very sleek and simple. The gloss black mesh is a nice touch as well. Thanks Subispeed!

  7. Much Better Looking

    By Jayman July 2, 2015

    The JDM grille is much better looking than the USDM one hands down! Hardest and longest part of the install is taking off and putting back on the bumper of course. Doing it without a friend makes it a bit trickier but not that bad. Highly recommended upgrade is you are looing to give your car a better look!

  8. Easy install and looks good

    By Steven June 1, 2015

    Looks great and was easy to install in the driveway.

  9. Perfect Fit, too many pieces!

    By Edward February 28, 2015

    So all in all definitely still worth it, but the price could be lower if the extra piece and screws didn't come with it. I was able to reuse all my hardware from my OEM grill. Didn't have to pull the bumper off, just setted a pillow on the floor and sat the bumper on that so I didn't have to disconnect the headlights and just used a stubby phillips to remove the screws. Overall great product! Subispeed Response: Glad you were able to get this installed! Unfortunately when we purchase the grille it comes bundled with the misc parts as well. We don't have the option of removing them to lower costs. - Chris

  10. Love it!

    By Joseph December 28, 2014

    This installation took me under 30 min since I have dropped my bumper many times. Its very easy and the outcome looks amazing! JDM grille looks so much better then stock, especially with the hella horns behind it! Great purchase!

  11. Nice grill

    By Nick August 8, 2014

    Yo you forgot one item you should of installed a chrome WRX badge on the grill. That's what I did to mine it looks great. This is a nice grill, looks great.
