Question Wagon or Sedan?

The fender flares rule on the new sedan - but they didn't put them on the wagon!

I really want a wagon, but I feel a little gyped that it wouldn't come with all the WRX signature parts.

Alternatively, if the wagon doesn't get the flares, then does the sedan really need them? Maybe the wagon has more of the Q-ship look that will help me clean up my driver's record. . .

I'm curious -- does it make a difference to you if the wagon doesn't get the flares?

I kind of like the wagon without the flares.

Of course I have never seen the wagon with the flares either.

Hard to say without being able to see it but I am betting that I would still want a silver WRX wagon.

I think the felt that the flares would make the wagon look too much like the Forester. On that note, I think I'll wait for a Poor soul to get rear ended in his WRX, then put the drivetrain in a Forester. Or better yet do a WRX STI conversion of one next time I have the $$ to get a Forester.

Wagon, sans flares. Like somebody else said it would look too Forestery. Turbo wagons rule! White, Silver or RB5 Grey.

Since I already have an arse kicking wagon, I would opt for a different style - sedan. Who knows.... I'll prolly end up with a Z car if the price is right!

Question

So what is the difference in track width? I'm assuming that since the sedan has flares the suspension and drivetrain is slightly different to push the wheels out.

Question

Don't the wagons have a nearly balanced front/back weight ratio, as opposed to the sedans, which are slightly front heavy.

Yup. Wagon has 51/49 IIRC. Wagons are so cute put put-ing around with their cute round bum.

Travis - great question! Did anyone ever post a Japanese translation of the SOJ site data?

All of the body size information appears to be at that site, but I am just a dumb monolingual American . . .
