Default Seattle Shinigami Bugeye Wagon

I ended picking up this wagon by accident you could say. My e30 was getting really tired and was a pain to drive over the pass in the winter, so I started hunting for an awd or at least fwd vehicle. I was originally looking for an evo or speed3. Both were a little out my price range at the time. My search then turned to bugeyes on craigslist but that led nowhere. I was very skeptical of buying a 150k plus wrx on racelands and orange xxr's. I had eventually given up hope and quit looking for cars in general. Then lucky for me, an older gentleman traded in a 56k mile bugeye wagon. I started getting insurance quotes before I had even seen or knew what color the car was. Thank god, the car was mbp.

Here's a few pictures of the e30

The day I picked up the wagon. The car was super clean inside, the previous owner must have parked next to suv's full of kids because every panel has multiple door dings.

Now I told myself I'd keep the wagon stock and use it as a comfy daily, that was still fun to drive to work...
That lasted about a week and I threw some springs on the car one afternoon on the sidewalk. I've never felt so trashy in my life but it had to be done.

Total install took me about 4.5 to 5 hours not bad. USDM headlights are thee ugliest lights ever but I was too cheap to buy jdm projectors. I ended painting the insides(forget technical name). Process was very easy just time consuming to do it right.

Drove around on the stock wheels for awhile. My roommate and I attempted to recreate Dom's house from the fast and furious. At one point we had an evo, wrx, e30, starlet, rx7, and civic all on the street. That ended fairly quickly to my dismay.

Got old with the stock look and ordered some wheels. Package came from japan.

Test fit, I was a little scared I messed up my math at this point.

Ordered up some tires and prayed for the best and guess what my math was pretty spot on. The wheels are 18x9 wedssport sa67r

Towing the rx7 in rush hour traffic to the secret shop in an undisclosed location. Both the awd cars getting some love in the shop.

Realized the car wasn't low enough to pull off the 18s. I ordered up some fortune auto coils for the car in 9k front and 8k rear. Car feels awesome now, I can't really compare them to other brands because the only cars I've ridden in with coils are 911 gt3's so...

The car was rubbing really bad so I took a chance and let the neighbors roll my fenders. These guys did an awesome job, thanks to them I can throw my car into any corner and not rub!

Here are few pictures of the car at it's current state. I'm debating on dropping the car a little more, but I don't want to lose drive-ability.

I got a killer deal on mine because I work at a dealership and it came in on trade. I paid around 8k for it but on the other hand we had another that was around the same miles but better condition. That car sold for around 13k within 2 days of being on the website. Customers were fighting over that car.

If you guys are enjoying the wagon, or are interested in others cars give my groups Instagram a follow @seattleshinigami I promise its not another #subiestance page lol. Even better if you're local let's meet up.

These past couple weeks I've just been playing with coilovers finding out what I like and don't like. I think I've finally got it perfect so I can get an alignment.



Did a routine oil change. Any thoughts on what I'm using?


Installed a lip



I also picked up an other car! I don't get to drive it much though my other half has claimed it. She thinks the wagon is uncomfortable...


I love living in Seattle but street parking is a nightmare it keeps me up at night. You'll see why...


Mind you, I have 4 cars and drunk driver decides to hit and run the car with 321miles on it. And yes im currently looking for a place with more off street parking.
