front bumper, part name ??

Can anyone tell me what the part is called that is fitted on the front bumper directly below the front repeaters/indicators on a classic impreza.

I either want to replace them with some kind of air vent or might get them colour coded, at the minute it looks awful. Click on photo below.

Yep thats the ones mate. Don't have the sellers name I'm afraid. Had a quick look on ebay and there doesn't seem to be any. Not sure how much Subaru would charge might be worth giving them a call or try a breaker.

Matt black them its the cheapest way and they still look so much better, if you do try and use a plastic primer before the black as its stops the black from peeling/flaking

How do you remove the bumper wedges and are they brittle?

They just clip in, give them a good push from the back and they should just pop out

Re: front bumper, part name ??

I've got a slight problem with bumper wedges, I cant get to them, when looking under the wheel arch and bumper there is plastic pinned/attached all the way across and up around the wheel arch, the last time I tried to remove those plastic pins to fit my mud flaps they snapped due to age. So what I'm thinking of doing is painting them using a model brush (used to do lead figures) as I am better with a brush than spray can any way.

Im not going to attempt to remove the pins I've done enough damage today see my other post below
genuine p1 rear spoiler, will it fit

thanks all the advice.
