That would be the tires ripping my fender liner out! You can see how tucked the front tires are from left foot braking.

Yes, I have completely disabled all traction control, VDC, and ABS.

If you lifted an imp a few inches would it be any different than a crosstrek?

The XV also has tinted windows. 4.444 final drive gearing, bigger radiator, different body bits, different seat fabrics, different wheels, different instrument cluster, standard all weather package + fog lights, and stronger suspension mounts.

So really if you lift an Impreza, all you did was create a lifted Impreza, not get yourself a Crosstrek on the cheap.

It would cost a ton to make an impreza into an xv.

Oh- tue xv also has different first and fifth gear ratios, a revised (faster) steering, bigger brakes, and a larger fuel tank.
