It will go straight on without any problems, but check the headight and grill fitment because I think they may be slightly different.
Make sure you get the bonnet vents too as they are also different.

as said, hedalights and grill are different so you'll need those as well to make it look/fit right. but fitment wise it will be fine with the bits mentioned above, mounting points are the same

It will end up looking like yours Tidgy, tbh I prefer the facelift.

If they're the same as yours then it will be fine. The facelift model has a different profile to the bonnet, which is why you can't change the vents around without changing the bonnet.

They are exactly the same mate, shouldn't have to do anything other than small adjustments to line it all up. Got any pics ?

Re: 99 wrx bonnet and bumper on a 93 wrx will it fit ok?

well me and my m8 ended up having a total misson to put it on, it wouldnt meet the bonnet latch in the end we got my old bonnet arms and modifiying the bolt hole so it would slide back further and that solved it, and the bumper it had a non turbo bumper on it and when we went to go put on the wrx bumper the spotties were bashing against 2 of the mounting points for the non turbo bumper...so chopped them off and it fitted.and yeah il chuck some pics up
