From the factory, the Impreza WRX STI rides on the high side so helping create that low down to the ground show car look is a set of fully adjustable Advance dampers. These help the massive 19-inch Racing Hart RS451 sit perfectly inside the fenders. The wheels are finished off with a two-tone black/brushed-aluminum look to enhance their split six-spoke design. Rubber is courtesy of Dunlop with a set of 235/35/19 Direzza DZ101s.

The factory interior remains untouched aside from the thinly bolstered red Charge Speed driver and passenger bucket seats. While these can be a tight squeeze, the seats do a great job of adding a hint of color to what is a very dark and simply styled cabin. Aside from Charge Speed silicone radiator hoses, the engine is stock but will end up getting some much-needed tuning parts in the future. In fact, the car was only showing 100km on the odometer, as it hadn't turned a wheel since it was delivered. It served solely as a development tool for the new body kit. Charge Speed will soon release its Type-1 kit, which will include a completely redesigned front bumper, lightweight carbon hood, and chunky vented side skirts. For more information, log on to
