Do the junkyarddog.com request. You should be able to find a used one.

or look on nasioc.com, in the classifieds. if not you can go to 1stsubaruparts.com or the other subie websites.......but JY is best bet for cheaper parts, only problem is finding one that matches your car's color.

If you decide to do it yourself but don't have the right color, make it the right color and paint it!

Here is the thread with my adventures with a bumper repaint. It wasn't that hard and was cheaper than a shop repaint, although admittedly not as good.
