If it's a similar offering to Audi's S-line packages, and it sounds exactly the same, it doesn't affect the performance at all. It's essentially putting a wing on a regular Impreza (except classier of course).
What makes a Golf R is still unique to that car.
Just like an A4 S-line is still not an S4.
