Is it a Bugeye, or maybe just after? Around 2001-2003 there were a few cars badged as a "WRX" that had the bucket seats, flared guards, but no turbo. I'm pretty sure it's factory badging...

Yeah the JDM bugeye wrx came in either an ‘NA’ or ‘NB’ 

The NA was a non turbo wrx similar to the srx of the gc8 era. As boon said it had better seats, wrx struts and maybe a couple other upgrades but yeah the non turbo bonnet with wrx badging was a factory thing.

Later model gf/GC say v3 onwards I think came as a trim LEVEL SRX - pretty much a warm version of the impreza, not a hot version - no turbo but highest spec NA. 


Pretty sure in Japan buyers were given a lot of optional extras at the dealerships, hence different stickers side skirts badging etc.
