    Joe’s Subaru Impreza WRX Shagon Wagon


    A lot of times the wagon bodystyle does not get the same respect that the sedan or coupe receives and is underestimated in both style and performance. Joe’s 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon defeats all the stereotypes ordinary people have about wagons and Joe’s wagon is an exceptional example of the potential that wagons have.



    Purchasing the WRX brand new back in 2005, Joe had no plans of doing anything to it but to daily drive and bring his dog around town. One day his wife decided to give him a new set of rims, 177.5 Gram Light 57s, then after installing his new rims Joe said, “ I thought the car looked terrible at that ride height so I installed Tein lowering springs ( which have since been replaced with the coilovers ) and from there on it’s been all down hill.” Maybe down hill was the wrong term used because the car is very close to perfect now and that wasn’t expected.



    Personally 04-05 Impreza WRX’s are a favorite of mine and this one is definitely done right! In some angles you see the aggressiveness from the vents on the hood, in others to the sexy lines of the side skirt. You also notice the sleek body lines from the sedan over fenders, roof rail deletes, and carbon fiber hoodscoop delete.



    The Matador Red Mica is a great color choice in my opinion because it catches just the right amount of attention, not to bright a flashy but still eye-catching. Joe and his wife saw this color on a Lexus GS and both agreed it was a nice color. At also just so happens that he owned a red CRX, what a coincidence!



    The 2 spoilers and diffuser work together perfectly finishing the aggressive look for the rear end.



    This EJ205 is pushing out 290whp 280tq but will be swapped out soon to make more power.



    Aside from the Brembo Brakes behind the TE37SL’s the subtle color scheme of grey/dark red work well together.



    Joe’s main goal was to create a neck breaker wagon that would easily stand out in a line up of cars. I say mission complete Joe, with form derived from function, this wagon is sure to break necks and backs as people turn around to do a double take on just how amazing this red wagon looks.
