S3 Magazine Profiles 818R

Huge congratulations to customer Ron Ewerth of Hiawassee, GA as his highly customized Factory Five 818R was featured in this month’s S3 Magazine, issue 41.

Ron built his 818R using a 2004 Subaru WRX, but upgraded the engine to the Japanese STi 2.0L EJ207. Even though its an R version and Ron uses it for track days, it is registered and street legal.

“Before Factory Five, most of the “replica cars” out there were more-or-less junk. To put it bluntly, Factory Five took the “poser” out of the replica kit car.” – Jonathan Wooley, S3 Magazine Editor
