I think you have to remove the roof lining inside the car to get to the mounting points. After a quick search I found this - Wagon Roof Rail Removal - ClubWRX Forum - Subaru Impreza WRX and STi Community and Forums. Should give u a little help

Voted yes but didn't remove them off of my wagon as they didn't really bother me. Will certainly look better and sleeker without them though.

Not gonna vote. It's your car you decide what look you want.

Ha ha ha, look what I started.
I voted yes because I think it is a good look for the Wagon. You need to drop the roof lining to unbolt them and replace the long plastic gutter trims, not too expensive to replace.
You can fill the holes with a clip and silicone to ensure they are water tight.
As above though, it's your car so you gotta like what you do.
Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

I have to say NO as you will take them off and before you know it will need them for some reason. I also think the car would look better without them but think it's what makes a wagon a wagon if you know what i mean!!
