Yes that is the WRC widebody kit that is made by GimmieGears here in California. The question is how many cars that are not rally car have it?????? Also, it is my daily driver.

Something about the front badge just doesn't sit with me.

Sorry, rest of it looks good but the front emblem placing just isn't my cup of tea.

I like it, but I also think the front bumper is a bit odd. I can deal with the emblem, but that little spot in front of the front tires looks like it would break just by looking at it.

I wonder if they would/could do that to a wagon.

The front grill looks like ass, otherwise, it's pretty cool. Some STi sideskirts would look good, and make the rear fender not cut back into the body so bad. The more WRC like, the better.

To answer some questions, there are now side skirts on it. Also, the widest rim that we could fit on there is a 20 x 9 1/2. As for a wagon, yes Robert at Gimmie Gears can retro fit a kit for it. When I gat a chance I will post some better pics. That happens to be the one that Ichibahnpicked to use but it is not my favorite.

is this the same car that was at RIM2003 gimmie gears tent? if so you had black rims yes? ive got tons of pictures of that car, i agree the grill and front bumper are not all that great, but there was a genuine 2002 wrc bumper from monte carlo that was on sale from primitive that would be a nice addititoin to the fenders.

I'll just be waiting to see somebody make a kit for the new style like this one:



Maybe GimmieGears will be that. So what kind of wheels are those and what is the width/tire size? i've wondered about what the offset would be on wheels like that.

ptech, do you have a problem with throwing debris from the arch angling back towards the car. I just noticed that they are like Conebasher in that way that which saves from having to get a different rear bumper and side skirts, but it seems like it leaves a big patch of tire open to throw stuff onto the car and chip that oh-so-thick Subaru paint.

Yes the white car is sick!!!!!!!!!!! To answer a question about the tire rubber, I have yet to notice anything to bad with rubber flying on the body or chipping. But remember the car only has 7000 miles on it and only 400 since all of the work was done. Also, I dont have factory paint on the car it was originally silver. And to answer one other question, yes it was in Gimmie Gears booth at RIM, but it was not finished and it did have 19" black wheels.

If someone can find me a better front end, I would not be opposed to looking at it. I am always ready to make the car look better...

This is the only other widebody kit that I am currently aware of. The front looks a tad better, but the fenders on yours is better. The holes on the bumper are smaller, and it has a lip on the bottom. Since these are widebody kits, you wouldn't be able to know if the different bumper would line up properly with your fenders. just stick with what you've got to be safest. Anyway, since you mentioned looking at others: www.subarugiken.com
