A Bug’s Life: Chris Shuemake’s RHD WRX [2016 Edition]

It’s been three years since I’ve last shot Chris’ immaculate Subaru, so I thought it was time for a refresher. One of the things that I love about this build is that it’s always changing and gets better every time these changes are made. I know Chris has had this car for years and it’s really great to see someone put so much time and effort into the same car for such a long time. Most builders these days tend to just put mods together, call it done, and sell the car. It’s really an art when it comes to building cars because anybody can throw parts together, but it really takes time and knowledge to refine your build to make each phase better and better.

One of the newest addition to this Bugeye is the extremely rare Mature front bumper.

Other notable parts that complete the front end include JDM projectors and the infamous ARC intercooler.

The C-West side skirts surprising matches pretty well with the Mature front.

I love all the details of this car like the Spec-C roof vent.

Moving towards the back end is again some new additions starting with the Mature diffuser, and also the Varis carbon spoiler. And to the trained Subaru eyes, tail lamps from a 04-07 generation Impreza gives this car an updated look.

Bride buckets adorn the fully converted RHD interior.

Center pods with Defi gauges are a must for any Subarus.

A gorgeous Nardi steering wheel wraps up the long list of interior upgrades.
