Thanks! Yeah most people don't notice, but yeah I had my license plate mount shaved and the two "mustache holes" on the 06/07 sedan bumper filled in as I thought they looked a bit goofy. It was convenient for me since I was switching to a sedan front end so I needed a new raw bumper anyhow. Kevin on the other hand had never repainted his front bumper after dailying the car since he got it with a salvaged title in '05, so it was well due for a respray and he decided it was time for the license plate shave as well.

For such a subtle mod I really love it, I also shaved the emblem from my rear hatch. All about the clean, shaved look... so thank you for noticing!

Winter is coming... Kevin's @ Bag Riders Subie on Air Lift Performance Struts, 17x8 Rotiform NUE's wrapped in Blizzak LM60's for winter performance! This was one of the first Subie's in the US to be bagged. We built Kevin's original setup back in January 2011 (wow I can't believe it's been almost 2 years now!!) using all Air Lift components and local friends for all the fabrication! The attention this build received (over 200 replies, nearly 50K views on the build thread alone) was the deciding factor for Air Lift to start building Subaru struts


Check out Kevin's original build thread here : Stance|Works: The Bagged Impreza Build

For those wondering, these are the struts that started it all... Painted "Kevin Green" - he's a big fan of neon green if you didn't guess :P


The first night Kevin's car was taken off stands was snowy, but we were so excited we had to get some shots!! Kevin's Subie has certainly come a long way since this night nearly 2 years ago. I can't wait to see what the future holds!

^That, my friend, that is good information. To know that there are people who can think outside the box and flip a vehicle in a complete 180 and start such an amazing trend!

Keep em coming!!

I remember reading that build thread over on Stanceworks (can't believe it was two years ago either). Can't believe how far bagged Subarus have come. And since Abbitt bagged his, it feels like it's exploded. haha

We had a nice brainstorming sesh here at Bag Riders yesterday and cooked up some great ideas for delivering media during the winter months Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram feeds! Of course, anything Subie related will find its way here

Any pics or video with GR's lifted? I'm curious about the clearance. Also GR's running these setups with an aggressive wheels? My wheels sit perfectly flush with the fenders and I'm curious if when aired out camber will increase and tuck the wheels.

So far all of the pics are laid out.

I'll get some shots for you at full lift, but check out Erin's WRX - it is pretty aggressively fit







The Full Feature can be found over on Canibeat.com

A couple other shots...

Dustoff New England 2012... hey I see me sitting in our booth!


SNTRL always taking sick shots!

AccuAir iLevel is here! Pre-orders will be shipping out today! Haven't ordered yet? No problem, there are still a few left on our shelves! Order online or give us a call!




iLevel is compatible with any E-Level system with "Plug-n-Play" installation. The app essentially replicates the functionality of the E-Level TouchPad, on your iPhone! This allows you to access your presets while the vehicle is off (just like the AccuAir Key-Fob) and functions exactly like a TouchPad while the vehicle is on.

Check out AccuAir's iLevel demonstration from SEMA 2012

Cool, thanks.
Seeing that the struts for 3rd gens haven't been released yet, how did they do it? Just a universal bellow/sleeve over strut/coilover setup? I know the white hatch is a prototype.

We have struts for 08+ Subarus, just not of Air Lift Performance brand. We offer products from a very wide range of Air Suspension companies. Erin is sitting on Air Force suspension, which looks like this (sorry for the pics taken quickly on our shop floor):

Fronts:


Rears:


We've sold a handful of kits for 08+ Subies all using Air Force or AirREX struts. Shoot me a PM or e-mail john@bagriders.com if you're interested in a setup!

Working on my air setup as we speak here is my set up in my 2013 WRX



This was my last bag build (Warning non-subi content)


Cant wait to finish up this one. Erin's car is what made me pull the trigger and sell the MK6
Couldn't be happier with my new subi and where my build is going

Just curious, but how are the air lines run from the tank(s) to the bags? Do you have to drill holes in the trunk floor or are there ways to run the lines without having to permanently alter the vehicle? I am interested in going this route for my 2011 STI sedan. Also, what is the average cost for the install (I know that prices will vary depending on location). I have never done any suspension work on any vehicle.
