this looks cheap


Recommended Posts

Hi all - hoping to get myself an Impreza wagon shortly, will likely be a hawkeye wagon NA 2.0 - I know the turbos are much more fun! - but just a couple questions for you experts...

Parcel shelf cover - it's missing! does the same part from the bug eye and blob eye fit the hawkeye wagon? These seem to fetch as much as £50 on eBay...bit of a bummer that it's missing.

I'm looking at this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2006-BLACK-SUBARU-IMPREZA-R-SPORT-2-0-PETROL-MANUAL-4X4-2-KEYS-XENONS-FULL-HIST-/272274217861?hash=item3f64cedb85:g:OwAAAOSwGIRXYEbK  The price looks really good? So I'm thinking it must have some possible issues - maybe clutch needing doing? It all checks out with HPI etc, 1 owner since new. 

Headunit - the factory fit one looks crap, so would want to fit an aftermarket single DIN one with Bluetooth, USB etc. Think I read it's not standard size? So do you guys know the best fascia adaptor kit to go for? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CT24SU06-Subaru-Impreza-2002-2007-Car-Stereo-Single-Double-Din-Fascia-Panel-/261975581880?hash=item3cfef624b8:g:~zQAAOSwgQ9VrkMO  maybe something like that?

Thanks very much for any advice!

The sterio on my wrx was factory double din I fitted a single and used the existing brackets and used one of the tray fillers, bit of fiddling and it looked good, on my sti i just got a double din kenwood, dab Bluetooth all the bits for under £200, looks better fit

@Piggysniffer - I fitted a Sony MEX-N5100BT head unit to replace the stock single DIN one. It was an easy swap, just followed a handy youtube video - just a few screws to remove and use the existing bracket.  Had to buy wiring loom adaptop from eBay at £3.50 and also ISO to DIN adaptor for the radio aerial cable at £1.60.

thats the video I used - OK its a double DIN but same principal.  I didn't bother completely unscrewing the gearstick btw as it wasnt necessary.

eBay bits needed:



and the final result...
