i find it odd too that for an imported JDM GC8 it would have a USDM rear bumper.
Not sure about SMOG for CA, all imported cars I see now have to pay extra to be legal in CA.

Rear bumper I think is same for the first version WRX as USDM subies came. I got it from RHD Specialties which imported direct from Japan. But there might be some other rear bumpers but this style is all I have seen on these.

That is a standard V1/2 bumper. The smooth bumpers we call "JDM bumpers" weren't until the V3+

Lot's of people forget that the earlier GCs were very different from the later ones.
Appreciate that, I was about to post pictures of the other ones I found that had same bumper. Thanks for the information.
