There are only 2 issues.

1. The rear wiper is mounted slightly higher in the update version, so you need to dremel (or equivalent) out a small section so the garnish will fit.

2. As the top of the garnish sites higher you can see the back of it from the inside of the car. If you don't have OCD this is not an issue, if you do have OCD you'd need the later matching tailgate inner trim to hide it. Whether the trim actually mounts up correctly (holes/clips etc) is something I don't know, so if you have OCD you may need the entire tailgate.

In my opinion the earlier garnish is the more aesthetically pleasing version anyways. The shorter piece gives the rear of the car a fatter/sqatter look. Which i preffer over the bulkier late model item, which tends to make the rear look taller.

I know some people might not like the chrome subaru lettering on the early model, but i think it fits the car very well.

I'm running a late SG garnish on my early sg. Like Bob said, need to make a small modification for it to fit.

I'll probably go back to the early sg garnish again once I'm bored. Might have a go making it look like one of those waist spoilers

Yeah I feel you.

I don't like the chrome line on the post facelift garnish.

I think I'll purchase a spare earlier garnish and attempt to color it and badge it like the post facelift one. Minus the chrome :)
