The car that Rob Giles owns was originally a 2002 Subaru WRX, but a swap was done including the full exterior from a 2004 Subaru WRX STI kit and 6-speed transmission and differential. With the help of Grounded Conceptz, Giles' WRX was transformed; an Air Lift Performance V2 kit and authentic M Sports wide body kit was installed to the WRX for suspension adjustability, aggressiveness and overall appeal. The WRX was then wrapped in a new 3M color called Satin Volcanic Flare.

"I have owned this car for a few years now," expresses Giles, "but it really came to life with the help of the Grounded Conceptz team over the winter of 2016/2017!"

FAVORITE MODIFICATION
"The M Sports wide body kit - it makes the car look very aggressive and I am yet to see someone else with the kit in Canada. It took almost 4 months to get from Japan and was definitely worth the wait!"

FUTURE MODIFICATIONS
"I already have a front mount intercooler and headers waiting to go in. Then next year I'm interested in doing a bigger turbo set up and an AEM meth kit."
