2005 Wide STi Wagon


Well I debated throwing mine in with these nice rides. Specially after Joe entered but **** it here it is.

I bought this sweet little 2005 WRB WRX wagon brand new in November of 2004, it had 16 miles on it. It was bought as a daily driver as I needed a car to get me around in Tahoe where I live, and get to snowboarding. It remained stock for a little while. Then started with a cat back exhaust (mmm rumble). Then an STi intercooler, STi Scoop/splitter, and springs. Then I got into auto-x and the snowball of mods really got started and has evolved to what it is now. It had been a daily driver up until about last year when the swap was done, only due to me picking up an RS to drive while it was down, then I kept the RS and switch between them for daily duty, and the wagon is now more for Auto-x and hopefully some track days this year. Mine is a bit different than most of the other ones posted so far, as my external mods are pretty minimal.

I have concentrated on function with my build, and started with Brakes/suspension then finished with the swap. It had many different configurations in between (VF34, 18G, suspension, brakes, etc.) Well here is what it has transformed into so far :
