2013 post!

swapped out the OEM rack and bolted this on!

WOOT got my rack updated from my old OEM wagon rack that was slipping around to a variation of Krazy's method -





I could use a more effective fairing but I'm still happy. Way more secure, can open the back hatch almost all the way with kayak's loaded, and it make the car look so much different

Can you fill me on how you did that?

I derailed my car and don't want to put my stock rails back on. On top of that I have JDM rain guards so I can you my sedan style mounts either. Didn't realize you could mount them like that...

Someone pointed me to this thread, so here's my Saabaru.

Pretty mild looking on the outside, but has a JDM VER8 drivetrain swap(Ej207, 6-spd, Brembos)

I utilized user "krazy" 's bracket that he designed for the sedans to replace the center bracket #3 and made that my rear point. For the front mounts I used the long SAAB bracket that have threads on them already (see image #2). Its essentially a variation of the "Ultimate Roof Rack Solution Thread". I don't think many have done it. PM if you need more details or links or anything.

haha I liked mine fine, but I had an old style of the rail grabs and the rubber wore out and they started slipping occasionally, and were tighter than cats...well never mind that.
Any how a new set of rail grabber's would cost me the same as what this did. There's plenty more for the story but its boring and bs. Best thing about this setup other than appearance is the fact that my hatch opens almost all the way loaded with whitewater kayaks, and it comes off easily when not in use for hopefully better MPGs

Idling on 3 cylinders the DIC still read at 19mpg. But the stored avg was 27mpg. So not too bad if you drive like the PO. (grandpa driver) :-)

Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in sideskirts for a hawkeye wagon and a sedan? I just got a killer deal on a lip kit, but it's for the sedan and I'm trying to figure out if it will take modification and how much. The website says fitment is only for the sedans, but I was under the impression that the side skirts should be the same. Do the widened fenders stretch all the way down to the side skirt area?

Yep. Just the sedan and wagon front and rear lips/bumpers vary on width is all. Sides are the same.

I didn't think so. I'll confirm when everything arrives and try a test fit.

That is the exact same car I have, dirrtydetroit. I love mine. The mileage has gone down a little now that it is cold out. In the summer I have gotten 31 on the highway, driving 65 and trying for good mileage. I average about 22 around town normally.
