I’m only asking cause I’m having trouble sourcing a 2007 bonnet for my Subaru Impreza and I’ve found a 2005 bonnet that from photos looks very similar if not the same. Does anyone know if I can do a straight swap?

In your country, is the 2007 the same body style as the 05, or is it the first year of the new GR body style?

I’m not sure from the photo I’ve seen it looks like it is same body style... at least from the front

If you're talking about a GD to GD (or GG, same difference) hood swap, then yes, it bolts up.

However, the headlights, grill, and fenders must be swapped to match the new style.

Yeah it’s a GG wagon... ok so the same would apply if it was a 2006 bonnet and I wanted to put it on my 2007 Impreza GG 5 door wagon?

The 06 should still be a hawkeye, just like your 07. So yes it should work with no other changes.

Ok cool then! Well I guess there is nothing more to it than to do it! Much appreciate you taking your time to read and answer my question, “Mike Tracy”
