    Welcome aboard and congrats on purchasing the right kind of WRX

    You'll find the wagon is a little ignored when it comes to body pieces (suspension as well), there are some, but not the plethora enjoyed by the sedan. I'd suggest looking (not necessarily buying) at japanparts.com, gruppe-s, vividracing to see what is out there.

    Looking through this thread (there is also a 2004+ wagon thread floating around) should hint at what is avialable.

    I say lets all email them and tell them we want them. If the demand is there maybe they will make them again. Sware i would buy one as they were only $200.

    I don't really understand why you would want carpet? I bought the rubber cargo mat and I like it a lot. Keeps the back end nice and clean.

    Evidently there rules in place (that I don't undestand) that force manufactuers to have different models comply w/ certain emission standards and only x amount of vehicles or models can occupy the laxer end of the spectrum- SOA chose the STi to fill that end.
    I always thought the STi didn't need the uppipe cat because there was less emissions problems with the 2.5 v. 2.0.

    Stupid emissions rules. Probably same reason why diesel trucks can belch all they want while cars are restricted as hell. Here in Colorado, there are almost as many diesel hickup trucks as SUVs, which together as many as cars.

I think mine may be close and wanted to check (my Yakima parts should be sitting at home waiting now for me to get home and install).

    The trays just barely don't touch the spoiler. I actually had to cut 3" off of the trays to make them fit. This makes mounting a longer bike like a dual suspension a bit difficult, but they will still fit most other bikes just fine. I will take the other measurement soon.

    Thumbs up Thanks wagone

    Thanks for the info! I was guessing I'd have to cut some off the end as well. Time to play with the parts and compare results.

    wagone: In short, the rack wasn't going to fit with the spoiler. They were fork mounts with the forks mounting just behind the front crossbar, so the rear wheels extend too far back and also would hit the gate. I looked at cutting some of the wheeltrays off, but then it would be too short for the mountain bikes... okay for the road bikes though. It's really too bad because the newer moldel stuff looks awesome!! I'm partial to the fork mounts, but I may have to go with a different style. Btw, which Thule rack is that on yours? I'm normally die-hard Yakima, but the upright look just isn't for me and the fork mount I got is their shortest model.

    Yeah man, I always go with the fork mount. The best, safest way to carry a bike. I have this Thule setup:

    450 Crossroad Foot, LB50 Load Bars, 590 V2 Trays. The trays are nice cause they have a cutout area for MTB disc brakes. Very nice.

    For those ppl w/ the STI fender splitters/winglets: when you mounted them, did you cut off the 3 clips on top part of the splitter part or cut 3 slits into the existing fender? this is going to be my one external mod (beside the new bottom rear diffuser if it's not too expensive).
