Its lowered a little. I live in NH and this is my daily driver so any more and I have a snow plow.

I have aero spats for the skirts and I want to get a 3 pc rear lip. That should even out with the front and make it look a little lower.

Thank you for the compliment though either way

this makes me want to do it as well

But i am thinking of adding 35mm wider sedan fenders as well as flared rear wagon fenders for a finalized look.



gotta start saving those pennies

No. They are the standard red they usually come in.

Im going to take the grills off and paint them along with my calipers and front and rear tow hooks (not pictured) a nice vibrant red to match my RA mudflaps.

Only the rear flaps are on the pics. Like I said its ALMOST done.haha

Are you planning on flaring the rear at any point? I've never considered this because I unlike most people like the sleek look of the wagons without the widebody. I think that wagons look great when they have a full widebody but when people just swap the front end it looks like a bulldog with wideset shoulders in the front and just a puny rear end. Seems unnatural to me that a car is wider at the front than at the back.

Regardless I am very jealous because I don't have the resources to do anything that I want to do with my car right now. That is a high quality job and it looks so clean! Congratulations on such a shiny car.

I am contemplating it. Widening and flaring the rear is a bit more extensive then swapping the front end.

Like you said I don't really have the resources to do that right now.

Its my daily driver so I couldn't afford to have it out of commission for a long period of time.

I don't have a garage so my work space is a 10x30 storage unit. Which is cool for what it is but it sucks that's its so far from home.
