    04 bumper, lights, fenders, and hood are necessary. I'm unsure about bumper beam between those two years.

    Ok, I figured you couldn't. I didn't think the head lights would've made too much of a difference. Just trying to give the front a little meaner look, and suggestions otherwise?

    what I'm pretty much trying to do is thicken the 03 bumper. It looks thinner and smaller than the 04, so i'm trying to replicate it if at all possible

    you can do a front end swap, but price get steep. theres not much you can do with a wagon. In my opinion the subarukits.com front lip, and a "jdm" style grill that goes out further makes the front end look a alot meaner. and fog light covers instead of foglights, but i also like having foglights so...

    The wagon thread has been pretty quiet lately. Anyone do any recent mods? Any new pictures?

    I've been dumping a ton of money into future mods - does that count?


    On that note - anyone have any pics of a wagon on RCE Yellow springs?

    Wheels are Rota G Force, 17x7.5 48mm, Flat Black. I like 'em, but think I would have rather gone Hyper Black 17x8 48mm. Gonna be removing the graphics so could use a bit more wheel bling, ya know? (plus, future plans lead to more tire needed.....)



    - Picking up some used RCE Yellows this weekend (not sure if V1 or V2, and not sure on the difference). Will be waiting for D-Specs, Com Cs, camber bolts to install.

    - Kartboy endlinks coming, as well as 20mm sedan RSB.

    - Picking up used Blitz Nur Spec Touring cat back this weekend.

    - Have Invidia V3 DP.

    - Have Exedy Organic clutch (lightly used).

    - Have ACT Streetlight flywheel.

    Will be waiting til after winter to install suspension and engine mods so I don't have to deal with the car's first winter with me lowered, with power. Local shop to protune, and proper alignment coming as well.

    Hoping for a decent Auto-X beast coming spring.

    after deciding i should start racing in a lower class (miatas or something), not in a fully built, stripped, WRX race car i decided to turn my car into a rally car, so im going to sell my coilovers, buy some rally spec ones, put the mudflaps back on, under body plate, tires, wheels, and all that fun stuff for the great off roads. it kind of sucks to spend all this money and time turning it in to a show/race car then go back but thats life, it will be a lot more fun as a rally car though. ill update with some pictures as soon as i can.

    Welcome . In case you haven't noticed, you're referencing a 7-year old post from a user that doesn't seem to have been on the forums in quite some time. Don't be offended if no response is issued.

    Hello fellow wagon owners.

    Finally got some good pics of the blue beast. Enjoy. Comments are welcome. Let me know if they are too big. I can resize them.





    When in doubt, flat out.
