It's got the standard quarter panel rust on the rear drivers side as well as a small amount on the front passenger side. Overall it's pretty clean considering. Might just patch it and stay narrow, but also considering some form of widebody. Not sure yet, and it's not super high on the list of stuff to do. It'll all have to get paint anyways when I swap all the front end body pieces/spoiler/roof vent.

previous owner of mine had cut the rear wells and had a little rust develop around the spot weld where the rear bumper mounts. After 15+ years of looking at Imprezas, I'm convinced that is the source for the common rust in the rear wells. It's a perfect catch all of road grime plus salt if you live in an area that uses such. There was about a 1/4" of fine dust built up on the foam pieces when I pulled the rear bumper cover.
I'm running 07 STI LCAs and lateral links which adds about 10mm on each corner plus 20+ 18x10.5 wheels... no choice but to go wide
Paid $650 w/18,300 and 9 years later has shy of 90K. Pic is of one of many trips to the "Dragon" The most fun you can have and not break the speed limit going up. Actually killed the proportioning valve on the last trip.
Quite jealous of your trip up the dragon. I would love to make the trip as soon as my car is done. Obviously I won't be ready for the next rally ha.
That's the plan. I've met a couple guys already. The motor and trans and such went to a guy who came down and helped me pull it.
Should be a run coming up in April but a few us have been known to make a day trip on a wild hair.

NA big plenum, long runner intake manifold showed up today. It'll go in for some porting and then forward face mounted in prep for the fog light turbo. Way too excited about this little bit of OEM part.
That looks great. I like the black. The seller gave it a fresh coat of gray so it's staying gray. I like the flow rate and the less angle on the throttle body mounts so I won't have to **** with the hood.
