    you can do 245's... depending on the offset of the wheel.

    I'm planning on 245's on RPF1's (17x8s) myself.

    So I'm trying to button down a decision on exhaust, and thought I'd ask fellow wagon owners what their thoughts are on their exhaust.

    I'm looking for loud-ish, angled (flame on, it's what I want), but deep and no drone.

    Is such a thing possible. I've asked every local Subie owner their thoughts on what they're running, and none had any experience with drone. Then again, they were all sedan owners.

    So, is there an angled can exhaust that will not drone on me?

    I will likely be stepping up to "stage 2" fairly soon, will be running K&N filter, silencer delete, and aftermaf at the intake side, and likely HKS turboback at this point. Any other thoughts on a less-drone-prone exhaust?

    Hey

    Me from South Africa, first post on this website. Joined cos it has a cool thread for wagons.

    I have seen some wagons that look absolutely wicked with the rear bumper add-ons. I have a blobeye WRX wagon and can get the sedan add-ons. will they fit my wagon? Been asking everywhere, even at the local dealership but not even they knw.

    Thanx

    Welcome!

    To which add-ons are you referring? Likely sedan rear-bumpers will not fit the wagon, since the sedan body is slightly wider.

    your probably talking about the aeroguards- the rear ones are specific to sedan or wagon, the fronts are universal- it's possible you could get the sedan ones to work, but it won't be plug/play like the wagon specific ones

    Dogs in a WRX hatchback...

    Can anyone let me know about the room in the far back of a 5-door wrx wagon? I ask because I have a 75 lbs chocolate lab...enough room back there for him?

    I have a Lab and with the seats up there is little room for a dog that big, maybe for short trips only but certainly not enough room for a long ride. I have a 2011, not sure if there's more room in the older ones, I suspect not much more.

    Wagons (2008+ are hatchbacks) have more rear cargo room than the hatches, though the hatches have more rear leg room. My 55 pound choc. lab (9 months) can fit comfortably in the rear of my wagon, though I never drive with her back there (she likes the windows)

    Actually looks a bit more like Laguna Seca Blue. Either way it looks pretty nice.
